    <P>Duckrookie beat me to it.&nbsp; He is correct in suggesting the Bluebook of Gun Values.&nbsp; This is what the majority of gun dealers &amp; retailer will use when you would take a gun to trade or sell.&nbsp; As mentioned, the Bluebook will have "almost" all guns listed in it and if it doesn't will tell you that there is not much value in the gun.&nbsp; I have bought and sold guns for years, and although the Bluebook is a great source of finding values, there are many variable to it.&nbsp; I often found that someone held the gun to have more sentimental value to them then actual value.&nbsp; One also has to realize that just because the gun is old does not always make it have more value and unless it is something special guns will loose a great deal of value.&nbsp; Might not be what you want to hear but the truth.&nbsp; Check out the Bluebook and ask what you think they are worth and what you think you can get out of them.&nbsp; You may also want to take them to a gun dealer or gunsmith to have them appraised if you have problems finding a list of guns.</P>

    <P>Great suggestion. An apprasial may cost you (last I knew around $10-15 per gun) but you'll know what they are worth. Since we are all fellow hunters &amp; outdoorsmen here I will tell you that those guns sound liek they were good hunting guns. Some of the Marlin Lever Action 22's have some value but I didnt see anything that pops out as big $ from the list, but w/ that said, they would be great for someone wanting to hunt. I for one love those 22 mag's. I perfer a .22 mag over even a Hyped 17 cal. That .22 mag would make a great small hunting rifle as would the others as well.</P>

    Older shotguns are not my thing, but is the Remmington 110 an earlier version of what is now the 1100? Or is it an older model pump, before the 870's &amp; even before the wingmaster?
