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.

    • He was talking about updating and upgrading our nuclear weapons,  which aren't related to the middle east.    Getting the 53 brigade combat teams up to readiness standards also will cost money.  
    • How much of that $6 trillion do you suppose is military spending?  I’d venture to guess a large amount of it.  Now while he talks about spending so much in the middle east and ignoring issues at home he apparently wants to add an additional $54 billion to the defense budget which will more than likely be funneled back into the middle eat one bomb at a time.   He might make sense in what he says from time to time but then his actions seem immediately contradict his words. Should we believe the words or the actions more?
    •  Decriminalization only makes small possession and usage kinda illegal.    Laws still have to be upheld.   Mexican cartels still would not be allowed to ship tons of cocaine over the boarder. Doctor still can't write false scripts.  Gangs still cannot run drug dens Staus quo     Just push for complete legalization. Regulate through the government. Lower the cost of product.     Cross your fingers you don't get a Russian heroine epidemic.    Freedom restored.      
    • "We spend $6 trillion in the Middle East, and we have potholes all over our highways and our roads"

      Every now and then it is hard to argue with Trump, the positives aren't many but he is not wrong about everything.
    •     Also, how do you explain the growth rate of U.S. incarcerations since Nixon began the War on Drugs in 1971?   You don't think there is big money involved in prisons?       http://fox6now.com/2017/02/25/private-prison-stocks-up-100-since-president-trumps-win/

    •   He won't ask anyone's advice - that's a big part of the problem.  But judging by his actions and words, he fully intends to return to the criminalization/prison approach.  You know, the method that was a complete failure in the past.   Why wouldn't pharma be worried about heroin and meth?  They make versions of both, so it is direct competition.  There is also real life evidence to suggest that marijuana can be used as a replacement for opioids for pain, so that is a reason for them to be opposed to the legalization of weed, also.  Do you have a better explanation as to why Trump wants to step up enforcement of federal laws against legal purveyors of marijuana according to their state law, rather than simply changing the FDA/DEA classification?                   They would be comparable, except they have spent close to a trillion dollars on the War on Drugs since Nixon signed it into law,      
    •   Is this speculation or do you have a source for this information?    
    • Without media, you will only get what news from the party in control that they wish to give you. With no freedom of the press, no matter what they say, you will eventually lose more than the 1rst. amendment.  Let's see what happens when the President addresses Congress and if it's a rally speech or a substance speech with policy? If it's just rah-rah??, with the corrupt  media,----make up your own mind.
