Quite honestly I’d offer him $400 apiece for the entire lot even knowing I’d spend at least a couple years trying to make a modest profit. If he thinks he’s going to sell his entire collection for retail plus I’d be willing to bet his heirs will be selling most of his guns. Those are some very attractive .22’s and I’d love to own a few (or all) but he’ll need a reality check before I pull out my checkbook. I’m sorry to be blunt but like most of us I have a lot more birthdays behind than ahead of me.

If you can’t be blunt then it is impossible to be honest. I was never a .22 collector so I do not know enough about the individual guns to carry on an intelligent conversation. But, I have bought and sold a lot of Winchesters and in my opinion, based on the comments regarding originality, buying this entire lot would be a nightmare and as Mike implies, you may never get rid of some of them. If it were me, I would concentrate on a couple of the best that you can get verification of originality on and try to buy just them. Even if you pay too much for the best, you will be better off down the road because an original and correct gun, especially one with some condition, will always be marketable and generally increase in value.

While a package deal would probably be in everyone’s best interests if you’re forced to cherry-pick I would focus on original specimens. The others may be fun to shoot or own but an original will always be easier to sell when the time comes. That transaction, if executed properly, may get your foot in the door.

Don’t have it all in front of me, but believe that is the one that loads in the middle.ofnthe stock.  If so, he was asking $750 for that one.

That has been my thought process as well.  Never intended to buy the entire lot but if he offered a very reasonable price I would.  Trying to Target a couple “good” guns was my initial plan.  Would just like to add a couple decent guns to my collection to one day pass to my kids that hopefully gain some value over time.

Yes the 63 is the one that loads through the butt stock. $750.00 seems like a pretty good price for it.

  Thanks Joe!  It was one that I marked as one to look more into after checking the blue book price.  Thanks for the confirmation I was on the right track!

I am going to try to get over and some more photos of some of these guns.  I also went through the original list and included the prices I have jotted down along with more clearly identifying which guns are in which photo.  I crossed a few out that you all have so helpfully identified as not being factory or currently priced a little too high.  I am very open to any additional thoughts before I make another trip out to look at the collection again!

Anyone out there have much info on incites into the Model 62s??

Photo #1 & #8

1. Remington Model 12 – 22 WRF – $1,250

2. Win 1890/3 – SN 706920 – 22 LR – Nickle Plated?  Assume not factory – $1,600

3. Win 1890/3 – SN 490756 – 22 Short – Birdseye Maple? – Apt Sight – $2,300

4. Win 61 – 1961 – 22 Mag – $2,300 (Priced out of consideration)

5. Win 1890/3 – SN 798541 – Assume not CCH from the factory – $1,300 (I can still work to get photos of this one if you would like Bert)

Photo #2 (Gun upside down)

6. Win 1890/3 – 22 W.R.F on the barrel – $900 (Noted as being a reasonable option)

Photo #3 – Ignore as just SN on birdseye

Photo #4

7. Win 1890/3 – SN 415874 – 22 L – $900

8. ??? – $900

9. Win 1890/3 – SN 712828 – 22 S – Gallery Gun – $1,000

Photo #5

10. Win 1890/2 – SN 87827 – 22 WRF – $1,000

11. Win 1890/2 – SN 215892 – 22 WRF – $1,200

12. Win 63 – SN 125665A – 22 LR – $750 (Identified as a potential target)
