    Multi Airgun offer

    I have interests in airguns and shoot two "modern low budget PCPs (Discovery and Hatsan).
    Someone I know has offered some from and estate, but they are not what I would normally deal with.
    Knowing who had them I can bet they shot VERY well.
    80s or at the latest early 90s manufacture I would guess.

    FWB 300 with sights
    Beeman R1
    FWB 80 (Pistol) (Correction of make/model)
    Daisy 717 (Pistol)

    It is an all or none deal so I am not sure how many bucks I should plan for or bail out of the offer.

    The FWB 300 is a fairly collectable classic air rifle. The HW80 is also a classic and one of the greats. The Beeman R1 is not one I know but a quick glance shows it to be another classic on a par with the HW80. I know nothing about the Daisy. Prices I can't help you with as I'm in the UK and things are very different here. The HW80 is, if in good condition, one to keep as an heirloom and to enjoy shooting.

    Here's how I would value them:

    $500
    $375
    $375
    $125

    Whatever their value to you, being put in an all or nothing situation is not cool so you should expect them to accept a good deal less than their normal values combined.

    The ones you aren't particularly interested in might grow on you, or perhaps you can sell one or two later on at enough of a profit to offset the price a bit. Either way I would not pay more than 2/3rd their nominal value under these conditions. I don't think he'd get a better offer from any dealer under the same all or none conditions.

    +1 on MG's post above; I have a 717 & although I like it quite a bit, valuing it at $125 might perhaps be on the high side.
