I believe that Little Crow Shooting Sports in Hutchinson could help you out or at least point you in the right direction.

I saw this last night and did't reply, but after thinking about it, the best way that I find the true value of a gun is do a search on some of the big internet auction sights for the gun. See what the same gun of similar condition is going for. I have a gun that is book valued at $18 dollars, but it never sells for anything less than $175 on any of those auctions. Guns are odd that way. If you are looking for antique value or for insurance reasons, you will probably have to go to someone.

Any info on the gun or why you are appraising it?

1876 Smith and Wesson Scofield, MINT condition, thought to be never fired. Not a clone or reproduction, this has been verified by a S & W historian, using the serial number, it was issued to the US govt. I'm only curious to the market value for Sh#ts and giggles. It has been inherited by a family member along with many other collector pistols and rifles, both replicas and originals, but this one caught my attention.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
