THAT'S the answer in a nutshell.

Recently I bought a tuned .22 HW97K & a tuned .25 MROD for $525 each, and was happy. I then decided I wanted to go mostly .177 for personal reasons. I traded the HW97K for a Santa Rosa R1 & the MROD for a tuned .177 HW97K and I couldn't be happier. Some may say I lost on the deal, some may say I made out like a bandit. So a lot of it has to do with what you want & what shows up at the time. If you are honest with the buyer/seller everything will work out. :)

Actually, however, just my humble opinion, the only value an air gun may have, is what someone is willing to pay for it.  You may not want to part with it for less than (x) amount, but in reality, you only get what the buyer is willing to pay for it.  Yes, very subjective, and pricing is being based off a very small, niche, market.


While I will not pay much for an AirGun, that is because I can not afford to.    So I do not measure the value in cash.

For me the measure of value of an AirGun is:
Value=(How_well_it_puts_food_on_the_table + ((2 * enjoyment_provided)/3) + (100 / purchase_price))/3

This is not a cash value, it is a true value with nothing to do with money (other than the lower the cost of a rifle for it providing food and enjoyment the better it is).

Is there a blue book for airguns?

I keep all my boxes...
