Posted this elsewhere, but does anyone have an idea of the value of a Winchester Trails End, cal. .45 Colt, in excellent condition?

Done that- prices there are kinda hard to believe, they are so high.

Got a recent volume of the Gun Digest book of gun values- they list it as: Perfect- $950, Excellent- $825. I was hoping there was some real-world output from folks here with experience selling this rifle.

They don't make them anymore, and I don't remember them ever being plentiful.

While I'll agree that the gun auctions are not comparable to real world prices, I haven't seen one in the wild for at least 10 years, probably 15. So, there you have the dilemma. When it's an uncommon firearm you have to be patient enough to wait for one (which may never happen), or pay the piper.

You wouldn't get mine for those prices. I was offered 1250.00 for mine about 7 years ago. I said "no thank you" without hesitation. And got a "don't blame you" as a response. If I saw one for under 1000.00 I would be surprised.
