Yes, you should have taken the $650.  At best, you might squeeze an extra $100 – $150 out if it, but the buyer would have to really motivated to own it.

I second this!  Reblued, rebarreled, and refinished and in .25-20.  Not much going for this rifle.  If you can get $650 for this rifle, take it!

Hello,

I would tend to say that the $650 offer is worth taking.  But…  I have often been quite surprised by what some altered, poor condition, refinished guns will sell for on Gunbroker.  You might get another $200 for it but that most likely won’t change your lifestyle.  Ask the original person if he “can get” to $750 and then let it go if he does.

In my humble opinion, you did well.  Likely you are happy and the new owner is happy.  All is good.  Tim
