Price / value question.

Hope this question is not out of line here. Up at a local auction is a Uberti 1858 Remington Stainless with adjustable sights and hexagon or octagon barrel new in the box. What is the value of this toy? Opinions?

The one on Gun Broker is started at $395.00 and is blue steel. I cannot find any information on these pistols anywhere. Any help would be appreciated.

I am just gettin back into BP pistol shooting since leaving it in 1970. (boy has the world changed.) First CB pistol bought 10-July-10 was used with minor pitting Uberti/Navy Arms 1858 Rem. 36cal. with Lyman mold blocks, holster, and 15 lbs of lead for $75.00. I suspect that was a fairly good price.

I don't know about the adjustable sight model but here's a starting point.

However, if you are talking about a Pietta then this one could be what you are looking for. Only $5 shipping at Cabelas through August 3rd. The SS Piettas are actually VERY nice.

I recently pick up this model for a delivered price of $240 recently. I actually returned it because it had a weird angled loading lever stud. They sent a replacement that was perfect. All on their nickel. The beauty of purchasing from Cabelas....satisfaction guaranteed.

Prices Way Up Availability Way Down

Prices are way up on Replicas right now, Cabela's has of course been running their special offers, which ends in August. Taylors and Midway USA have some good deals. But when it comes to used..We won't mention originals. I ran into several Remmies like you described at Gun Shows going for $300-$500. It all depends on what shape they are in and of course what the customer is willing to pay.

Midway USA sells one new for $450.00 but that doesn't include S&H. Also they're on back order

You stole the Uberti Remmie for $75.00, if it's fully functional and doesn't need some repairs. I just got into Black Powder Shooting. I bought a Mendi Replica of a Spanish Muzzle Loading Pistol .36 Cal and a Uberti 1847 Colt Walker on Gun Broker, I paid a bit too much for either one but, what the heck. Smartest thing so far was to buy a Uberti 1851 Colt Navy, .36 Cal from Taylors.

Loads of people who bought Black Powder Revolvers in the 80s and 90s at the prices you describe have discovered that they can now double or triple their money buy selling them. Of course there are also people who have bought them lately on a whim, shot them a few times and decided to get out of it and try to get their money back.

It's interesting times. I have been collecting cartridge weapons for decades and so far my venture into Black Powder Revolver has been interesting.

In short use the google, shop around and good luck.

The only Uberti 1858 Rem. target like the one on auction was found was in Australia for $823.18. WOW!! (That is $744.00 in US money.) It is different to all the current types of adjustable sight '58 Rem. Stainless CB revolvers currently being offered.

6th Edition Blue Book (2009) lists the value of a Uberti Stainess Steel target model as follows:

100% - $445; 98% - $405; 90% - 335; 80% - $290.

Good luck.

Thank you Mr. McGee. I could not find it on the 2008 Blue Book CD. Don't mean it ain't there, just could not find it.

BP revolvers are not covered in the Blue Book of Gun Values; they're in a separate edition titled The Blue Book of Modern Black Powder Arms.

You absolutely did steal the 1858 and paraphernalia. Used to find those kinds of deals at gun shows but not so much any more.

BTW, no need to bold your text.

The $460 one at MidwayUSA seems a bit pricey. For the money I'd rather have a Ruger Old Army.

It's amazing the range of prices for Black Powder firearms. A couple of months ago I picked up a like new steel frame Armi San Marco 1860 Colt for $100. If I really wanted to try, I probably could have gotten it for $80. I've heard varying stories about the quality of these guns, but the one I bought is a real beauty, and the action is outstanding. Shot it a couple of times already and I really like it.

I also have a couple of ROAs.

PRICES, yeah. I am still sniveling and whining for passing up on the purchase of a new in the box of a Uberti 1847 Walker for $200.00 last fall. Had not intended to get back into black powder at the time and did not fully realize the value of the gun.

I have owned three ASM pistols and I like(d) them all.

I still have a brass frame and a Steel frame Remington and they are as tight as any new Pietta I have examined. I also rebuilt a CVA 1863 Pocket Remington. Come to think of it, it might be hard to call that an ASM with all of the aftermarket parts I had to use. I think I actually got some of the parts from the Maytag repair place down the street.

Anyway, I will never part with these two Remingtons I still have.

I will also say that I have a steel frame Armi San Paolo 1860 in the white and that is a buone pistole as well.

3 Uberti pistols

I've recently come into ownership of 3 black powders.
2 are .36 and one .44 All Uberti.
Navy, Patterson, and Walker.
I don't do black powder. Have too many regular guns and not enough money for another "bad habit",wife quote.
What is best way to find out there worth and sell. Don't know of any local shooters.

Post some pics and we'll give you an idea of value. If they are nice they should bring good prices particularly the patterson. You could list them for sale here or sell them on gunbroker.

As denster implies, condition is key to value. Making an honest evaluation of the condition will quickly establish the value and draw the appropriate attention. You don't need to do the "95%" thing, just describe the condition in ordinary words, making sure to include the inside of the bore and chambers, and the area around the nipples.

Oh, and place it in a new thread so it gets proper attention.
