    44 mag Ruger Deerfield value?

    I have been asked to sell on Trade Me on behalf of a deceased estate a 44 magnum ruger Deerfield semi auto but have absolutely no idea what sort of $ this would be worth. It has a Simmons scope and comes with 2 magazines and about 100 rounds of ammo. I have yet to set eyes on the rifle but am lead to believe this is in very good condition.Can anyone give me a rough idea what this may be worth.

    The Deerfield is a new model but not as sort after as the standard 44 carbine, a couple of years ago all Ruger 44 semi's were really sort after but seems they have gone out of favor lately.

    I sold a fully restored & lovely Carbine for $ 1700- 1800 ( from memory ) a few months back but I'd say with that Simmons ( which is a budget scope ) & two mags . $1400
    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!

    I wish I had the coin. Always liked to have one of these auto 44's.

    If it’s the one with the ruger 10-22 style rotary mag
    800-1400 depends on condition the tube feed one a tiny bit less maybe upto a grand

    Think the value mentioned above is a bit light - understand the tube fed are more popular - in Good to VG condition about $1500- 1700 scoped - with 2 mags and ammo - Maybe up to $2000 - (recently purchased a VG Condition Tube mag one for $1750 scoped FYI) - was one with a really nice restored stock & Tube fed for $2000 recently on TM - not that common and pretty sought after - I will never part with mine unless the deal includes a pub and your daughter !!!

    Thanks to everybody who responded with guidelines especially those who PM'd me with offers to purchase. I have spoken to the trustee of the estate and because of the variance in values I have been asked to list it on Trade Me. https://www.trademe.co.nz/sports/hun...1616898362.htm
    The proceeds of this auction are being donated to a local NZDA trust initiated by the late Trevor Meikle which provides for up to 2 or 3 young /new hunters each year to be provided with $200 of hunting clothing/equipment and taken on an overnight hunt by experienced hunters where they get the opportunity to shoot their first big game animal and are shown how to gut and butcher the meat ready for the table.
    I have not seen this rifle but the person who has asked me to sell it is a very experienced hunter and target shooter but is unfamiliar with Trade Me. He says that the rifle is in very good condition except for some minor scratches around the but and a couple of other minor marks, he also says the bore is in good condition.
    If any of you are interested get bidding as it is going to a worthy cause.
