had a friend offer to trade towards an rifle i have (10/22)

wood is old and looks decent or better

metal is nice and engraving is still visible




im not into black powder shotguns, nor an antique firearm fan, so im just interested in its trade value or average price for one

ill see if i can list pics tomorrow for right now i need a idea of the retail ballpark for one

If it is fully functional and locks up tight, it is a fair trade for the 10/22.
Check for broken firing pins and whether the barrels lock up tight to the receiver (both are +/- $50 repairs).
If the barrel is bulged or has deep rust pitting knock $100 off the value.
Any engraving or inlay raises the value by at least $100.

There is nothing wrong with Damascus steel guns but very few of us shoot them. So modern steel may sell easier than Damascus steel but it really not actually worth any more or less.

the deal is in a holding pattern since his friend offered him 900$ for it, assuming it can handle a load it does cock and lock

the metal looks like it is near perfect for an older firearm, there is engraving but no inlay
id love it for water fowl but it wont fire steel loads

its my own fault if i knew more i would have just handed him the ruger
