    Valuing an 80 DL

    Greetings all, Im in the process of "thinning the herd" and I am considering selling my 80DL
    It is I believe either a 1940 or 41 model, Ballard rifled with no serial #, Wood and butt plate are in G-VG condition and I would say the Bluing is 80% or better, original Hunter sling has the original rear sight, with both peeps and the correct front sight hood. Gun functions well, has original Magazine, bore is bright and it is very accurate with SV ammo.
    Im not posting pics right now im just trying to get a good general idea what a value would be. I have seen what is for sale locally and on Gunbroker and Armslist and know what I would pay for this piece but .22s are my Kryptonite.
    Help? Thanks in advance

    I've had my model 80 DL for more than 50 years, and I am sure I value it more than the market will bear, but I don't know what that $$ amount is.

    Have a blessed day,

    I know there is one at the LGS with an old Weaver 3/4" scope missing the lower sling swivel I think the asking price was $195 or maybe $225? I'll look tomorrow and let you know for sure. Asking price and selling price are not the same thing as you may know.

    The asking price at the LGS is $195, I would imagine it will sell in the $150 range or he will have it on the shelf for a while.

    Old men with Garands do not panic.

    There's one at a LGS that is priced $165. It shows it's age and has been in the rack for a couple years. He'll never get that price, and I wouldn't go over $100 if I wanted it.

    I have an 81dl marked JC Higgins with the chrome bolt ad trigger guard. That thing can shoot!

    I'd say 175.00
    If it has an original Marlin 12R peep, maybe 225-250.
