I have my grandfathers old TC black powder rifle that's been sitting for about 30 years. I'm considering selling it and wondered what the value of this would be? Thanks for any replies..
Exactly what I was thinking,a wall hanger or a conversation piece.The thing is these are the only kind of ML's allowed in PA (no in-lines allowed),would be an easier sell there IMO!Like everything else, condition is everything. A lot of old BP guys that were casual shooters let the bores get away from them, especially down near the breechplug, even if they cleaned them well. But if it is in great shape, a real world value is $200-250 to someone that really wants one, I have seen them as low as $150. There are a LOT of hawkens and Renegades around. With all of the new generation ML's out there, it's a tough sell to find someone that wants a traditional external ignition rifle. New T/C Hawkens are insanely pricey, but they don't sell many. They are great shooters, why not get some fixin's and go have some fun? They are very addictive to shoot roundball through.
These do not need an FFL tp transfer out of state that I know of!Think these are not listed as firearms as you have to load the powder yourself.I found this forum while looking for a Thompson Hawken. I agree with all that's been said in the previous posts...but if you ever do decide to sell, I would be wanting it. I'm out of state and I don't know if that disqualifies me or not but I'm very interested. Thanks...
