I need help telling what these are and what I should pay if anything for them.

I have a guy trying to sell me a box full of gunparts. This is the only picture I have and I don't know anything more than he thinks they are .38. Does anybody know what all these revolver parts might be worth.

Please try to take a stab at it.

Thanks!

I would venture to guess they are Iver Johnson topbreaks. Do any of the grips have IJ engraved into them?

Most of those guns can be bought in decent condition for less than $150, sometimes as low as $85 or so, all day, any day on Gunbroker.

Also, if you don't identify them all, how will anyone know if they need one of the parts?

BTW, I think the one on the bottom left is a S&W Lemon Squeezer type.

My thought exactly.

The OP question appears to assume that what's in the picture are all good gun parts and what their value might be based upon that.

But the bigger question is: "Why did all those parts end up in that box?"
I'll bet that they are all defective in one way or another and this is the junk box full of parts that were replaced with good parts on the guns they used to belong to.
In the case of the mostly complete guns, they might simply be guns deemed not worthy of repair.

So I'm thinking I'd pay maybe $20 for the box... to pay someone to haul it off.

The BIGGEST question is, what does the seller want for the box?

There might be a treasure just waiting to be found in that box. My garage is full of treasures like that. jd

Wait for a gun "buy-back" program and clean up!
