looking for a web site where I can check approx value of shotgun without having to pay or get subscibed.
None exist... everyone wants a piece of the pie now-a-days.
You can post a specific question on this forum, but in order to provide you with a reasonably accurate value assessment, you will need to disclose a detailed description of the gun, and if possible, post several clear close-up pictures of it.
I certainly don't understand the "or get subscribed" bit... but looking for recent prices for a specific gun, one of your best choices is to register at Gunbroker and then search completed auctions.
Be careful to sort the results by number of bids, guns with 0 bids didn't sell....
Rmember..... You get what you pay for. Some things of quality require a bit of effort or a few $. Do as either Bert or rboatright suggest and you should be happy with the result.
Thank you, All you guys for your help and suggestions. I understand about getting what you pay for, I have seen a Browning in a military surplus type store and I was wondering about approx value. It was a "light twelve" 12ga but I dont have alot of details. I was trying to see if they were asking a reasonable price.
so get the details. Go look at it, write down everything marked on the gun and come back and give a GOOD description of what it is.
Hey Jeff....we recently inherited a collection (19 rifes)from my father in law...and we are trying to get an idea of what each of them are worth....is there anyway to do this on line or is there a book (like the kelly blue book for cars) we could purchase to get an idea of what we have. I appreciate any help.
I do not think Jeff is going to be much help to you. Yes, you can purchase a "Blue Book" for firearms or numerous others and do it yourself. Or if you are unfamiliar with collecting you can post the guns here on the Gun Value Board and, for no charge we will be glad to help. Please start a new post for each rifle in the manufacture specific forum and supply us with the needed information. Please read this post for an idea of what is needed.

Photos are a HUGE help. In order to assess the condition and determine the value of the rifle I will need to see some good photos. Please take a look at the following link and get back to me, I will be glad to help - http://www.gunvaluesboard.com/how-to-take-pictures-of- your-gun-4-quick-tips-that-save-time-and-yield-better- results-1420.html
Right Here.... Just provide the Make, Model Number, Caliber, Barrel Length, Condition, and Serial Number. That is all it should take for the usual questions.
Kcbuck,tne guru. .. i am looking into a model 841 Rossi. 3 in barrel. made in brasil. c.a.i.georgia ut.(or vt.) E 016591. the hand gun looks like the finish has seen better days. the cylinder aligns great with the barrel on all positions and the spacing between the cylinder and barrel is tight until pulled from each other,and then it is about 1 sixteenth. and it is a 38 special cal. looks like original wood grips with lanyard swivel on the but of the hand gun.

please tell me the value of my rifle
please tell me the value of my rifle
I do not have pictures yet. It was my Grandfathers, then my Dad's and now mine. I know the serial # is 1210679 and it is in good/excellent condition. I also was given a T. roosavelt Commemorative 30-30 # TR4323 and it has never been out of the case/never fired.
I use the Schideler Standard Catalog of Firearms values. It is very thorough with models, variations and pricing according to condition. It is a 2010 edition, so may be a bit outdated. With the .223 scares around the country pricing is difficult as far as assault rifles go. But very informative for all other firearms.
Just an FYI , but the post you answered is 3 years old...
