It depends on it's age, appearance and the amount of wear that it has.
I'd guess somewhere between $250 - $300, plus shipping.

Great Plains Hunter or Great Plains Rifle? Truly excellent condition GPR is worth upwards of $300, as much as $375 depending on the wood. New ones are running $100 more at the discounters. GPH's are $50-$75 less.

Great Plains

Thanks guys that is very helpful. My rifle is in excellent condition so $300. might be a fair price. I plan on posting it here as soon as I reach the 30 day mark.

Condition makes the difference !!

Pretty much what mykeal & arcticap has replied. Last year, at a local gun show, I passed on one for $300.00. ....
These are some of the best SideLocks out there and make great hunters. I always recommend them. ..

Be Safe !!!

There has been a guy selling GPR's and GPH's, both flintlock and percussion, on gunbroker for the past several months for a starting bid of $350 and $15 shipping. I had to bid on three of 'em before no one else bid against me and I finally got one for $350.

Ok on the Lyman, now what about a Traditions 44 cal Colt Navy pistol

As I understand the rules, I am unable to list my guns for sale until I have 25 posts and am a member for 30 days. Having said that can anyone tell me how much I could expect to get for a like new, never fired, Traditions 1851 44 cal. Colt Navy pistol with leather holster. It is my intention to list both the Lyman and Navy Colt for sale on the site when I reach the magic mark.
