gun help!

7 posts in this topic

aight since i cant post in the hunting forum i am posting this year.
my grandpa gave me a gun a while ago and i was just wondering what the worth of it is. i will never sell it but it is just something that would be nice to know.

New England Firearms co
parnder single barrel shotgun

that is about all i know right now.
Is there anyway to figure out exactly what it is?
What price range is it in? never been used and it has only seen maybe 5 minutes of daylight out of the box.
i know nothing about guns that is why i am asking, probably never will.
any help would be much appreciated. thanks

Hey pig_sticka, I've got one of those too. It was the very first gun I ever bought and I still use it. I paid about $85 about 20 years ago, its a 12ga. I beleive they still sell them today.

it looks like a pretty sweet gun, 20 years ago at 85 dollars plus inflation smile.gif
i think he won it at a ducks unlimited get togther or something, or maybe that is just what i believe happened.

anyone know the value of it now or what it sells for?

These are still relatively inexpensive guns, but they are well made. I am not sure what retail is right now, but most sport shops have a gun blue book for reference. I have seen the blue books in public libraries also.

I have a NE Arms break open rifle in 22 Hornet that is a real hoot to shoot.

Pig_sticka,
Yeah, hate to say it, but they are pretty common. I used to work in a pawn-shop, and we'd sell them for as little as $50.00 and only loan $25.00 on even a nice one, like what you say you have. Hang on to it, though. Could be fun for solo-skeet or trap.

ill probably never use it because it was from my grandpa. if i do go hunting sometime i might use it though. but it is too personal to do much else with it. i didn't think it would be a ton but i figured worth alittle bit. i know he has gun cases just full of really sweet guns.

thanks for the feedback i knew i could rely on everyone here. might hang it on my wall for show. never owned any bullets for it.

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
