    I have a friend who is looking to sell some of his father's rifles and was asked to help determine value. Unfortunately, I know very little about these rifles and have been unable to give him a good answer.

    Once I have a "ballpark" idea, he will set an asking price and they will be listed for sale here first (barring any family members calling their option first).

    I realize that an accurate est. cannot be made without more information. I am looking for ballpark figures. I am not looking for, or considering offers to buy. No offers will be forwarded to the rifles owner. HE will determine what he wants to sell, for how much, when to sell and to whom. I am looking to give him some information to start the process, nothing more.

    The following prices are based on what I found in the Blue Book and prices seen on GunBroker. Model 70 values are all over the map. Most of the big bucks are going for NIB guns that have never been assembled or rifles that have had custom work done by a well-known smith. Rugers never bring the same value as a Winchester. They do not include the value of the scope since that generally does not influence the final value of the rifle since they can be changed out by the new owner. The values on #3 and #4 are reduced since it appears they do not have the original stocks.

    1. $600
    2. $1,000 (mfg 1958)
    3. $1,200 (mfg 1961)
    4. $900 (mfg 1959)
    5. $1,750 (mfg 1957)

    Thanks Bullseye.

    Those values are mostly in line with what I am finding.

    I appreciate the assistance.
