Re: Gun Buyback Horrors

Time was... there used to be enough crappy old guns around that an offer to pay a hundred dollars each for any gun just to burn it could be a windfall. Anymore, with GunBroker I guess every gun in the world is worth at least a hundred dollars.

Two Digit Serial Numbers Reserved From Ruger's Old Output

Dougan says that all of the two digit serial numbered guns were reserved for those who were already buying each number.

It's probably too much to hope for, but has a list of these lucky individuals ever been made available?

Seeking value of original first model Deerstalker Carbine

An early "Deerstalker" with serial number in the 3000 range.

Blue and wood finish perfect. No box.

Can the experts kindly give a value on today's market?

Thanks.

PS. It has a flat-faced, white-insert front sight.

Hawkeye Serial Number - Does a Low One Count for Much?

Regarding a two-digit serial. Is that important to the collectors even on a gun that was only made in 3000 units total?

Hawkeye Pistol

Regarding a two digit serial Hawkeye - does a low serial number count for much on a gun which only sold 3000 units, like this one?

Extra value to 3-digit serial on .30 Carbine Blackhawk?

Hello to the better-informed collectors:

I've always wanted a .30 Carbine BH, and am likely to soon be buying one, just wondering if a 3-digit serial makes a significant difference or is this OM worth regular book value? And, is the Blue Book reliable on this model?

Thank you.
