    Once you figure prices, please post up here and give us a shot at em. You have a couple on here that I or a buddy of mine may be interested in. You should be able to do well in the current market with some of the guns. Other will still only fetch pre-market craziness. If you want to consign any of them, let me know I know a guy that runs his own 1 man gun shop, he is a pretty well known bike builder in Michigan. Ted is also one of the most straight up, fair guy you would ever want to meet. He has contacts all over the U.S.

    Due to availability, prices are so volitile right now it's tough to give a fair estimate. Your best bet would be to take them to a store and consign them. The dealer will tell you what the market value is, and once you decide on what you want out of it he'll set the price based on his profit.

    Magnum Force does consignments and they're close to you.

    I can give you some info on how it'd work down there. Let's use the Ruger 10/22. I don't know which model it is, and there are a ton. Using the standard stainless model, Terry sells them new for $235. The fair market on a used one would be about $190-$200, provided it's in good condition. He takes 10% for consignment, so if he sells it for $190, take $19 off and you keep the difference.

    The biggest problem I see with the list is the number of oddball guns. The Marlin .45 Camp Carbine is going to need the right buyer, it's certainly not mainstream. I've seen those go for anywhere from $600-$900 depending on condition. Nice little gun, but not everyone's desire.

    The SKS will have good value, but the Norinco version (under normal market conditions) would be a lot less, they aren't very well thought of. But again, due to current conditions the fact that it's a military style 'assualt' rifle, it might go right now for big bucks.

    Best way to research on your own is to check out some of the sites. gunsamerica.com and gunbroker.com both feature used gun listings. gunbroker is an auction site, so make sure to search completed auctions to see what they actually go for, not what people are asking. Another good place is michigangunowners.org. It's a forum with an extremely active for sale section.

    Alcohol, Tobbaco and Firearms should be a convenience store, not a government agency.

    yeah I'm not sure what she is trying to do. Consignment might be a good idea.

    I talked with Robbie Murphy about this Sunday. He worked at a gun shop for a couple years and ran a pawnshop. He is extremely knowledgeable about guns and said he would be happy to appraise them for you. Let me know and I'll set it up.
