Gun Values - Old
« on: December 21, 2017, 06:06:27 AM »
Have a couple older guns I am trying to determine a fair price for.  First is a Remington 1917 w/sporterized stock.  Second is a 12 guage double barrel made by N.R. Davis & Sons.  Both guns are in fantastic condition for their age.  If anyone has ideas or info on where I can find information I would appreciate it.

Has the barrel been cut down on the m1917 should be 26 inchs? Sporterized guns unless they display outstanding workmanship or were done by well know smiths rarily go for over 250. Id offer 200 for it

  Can you find the word "Davis" anywhere on the shotgun? That will help with the year it was made.
  It's probably worth around $100-$150

Means it's probably from the 20's or so.  still worth around $150.00, maybe a bit more if it's in really, really good shape

If you google NR Davis and Sons there is quite a bit of info availible on the company eventually getting absorbed by Savage.

You shotgun appears to have damascus barrels in a monoblock or it was rebarrelled/sleeved at one time in its life.  It is a pretty decent gun and would be a candidate for restoring if it is mechanically in good condition with sound wood.

You might want to go to this sight and ask about it, maybe some sharper pictures of the underside of the barrels behind the hinge and the barrels.

I have a C&R and will give you $175 if your family owned it since then.

175-200 for the Rem private sale - (ZERO collector value after being cut but fun as hell)  A broker might get $250 for it.
