Kinda like asking what my GMC pick-up is worth. I do not want to appear to be demeaning or belittleing but there are SO many variables that determine value. Original condition, ammount of wear, caliber, year of manufacture, options, sights, grade, are just some of the things nessasary to determine value. Posting some close up photos is the best way to start.

Ditto, pics are worth a thousand words. So are the specs. But in the end, it's worth is only what someone is willing to pay you for it. Watchin "Pawn Stars" the other day, guy brought in a nice 86 rifle in 45/90. He walked out the door with $800 cash. Was it worth more ? Yep. but not in that place and time.

That means that they believe they can sell it for $1,600.
