I have an elderly relative who no longer stalks due to ill health. He is wanting to sell his rifle and is insistant on going to his local gunshop as they will purchase it off him - my concern, is due to his severe dementia and the fact I am not able to accompany him (he lives in the NW) I want him to get what the rifle is truelly worth and not get the p*** taken out of him.
The problem is, I don't actually know what it is worth so I am putting it to the good people here on SD to give me a ROUGH idea on the price I should tell him to be expecting (I will write it down for him.....just hope he remembers the note)
Browning A bolt Medallion .243
Swarovski Habicht 6x42 nova
Wildcat Predator sound mod
2 x metal 4 shot mags.
(Sorry, no photos but I will try get some if really needed)
The walnut stock has an odd 'battle scar' and scratch from multiple hill stalking trips in Scotland but the metal work is all great condition. The shot count is under 500 but wouldn't know exactly without trolling through all of his shooting diaries and counting the deer. The Wildcat is newly fitted and has had less than 50 rounds through it.
***I would like to add the individual in question has assessed by both a medical professional and his issuing Firearms Constabulary and they are both happy with his current medical condition to hold firearms - I shouldn't need to have added this but as always, have people judged without knowing the full details.
