    BSA 222, what's it worth?

    Hey folks,

    My neighbour is an older gentleman who is in the twilight of his hunting career. We have shared the odd hunting story and get on really well. He came over the other day and said that he's not going to be able to hunt much longer and might be looking to move his rifle on. I would love to be able to buy it off him when the time comes.

    I have never seen the thing but he tells me it is in mint condition. All I know is that it's a BSA .222 that he absolutely loves. I know it is all condition dependant but what ballpark should I be expecting when we discuss dollars?

    Any nudge in the right direction would be great - I'll try get some pics at some point.

    Cheers,
    Adam

    @Dorkus BSA made 4 different models of 222 (Hunter, Majestic, Monarch & CF2) and price is dependent on which one of these models it is. A photo will answer all mate.

    What about this
    If you (and him) of course agree - put Pics up and we can hold a Auction on it
    If it is what I think - it could be well worth it "for him" financially

    Just an idea - Admin might not agree but ???

    Would I be really wrong and saying that a mint bsa would be worth 800 bucks? I've seen some that took ages to sell for 500 bucks on trademe

    For what it’s worth; what I’d pay (and I own 3 BSA Hunters in 222 and 22 Hornet; having had an extensive Hunter collection in the past):

    - BSA Hunter 222 - good used $800-1200; excellent perhaps $1500; a super mint one that is completely original could come in comfortably at anything up to $2500 - maybe more. Close to new or Philip Holdens personal rifle or whatever, name your price;

    - BSA Majestic - similar to the above but slightly less - $950/$1300/$1900;

    - BSA Monarch and CF2 - in my view these are really nice but materially inferior/less collectible - $700/$850/1100.

    Beauty is of course in the eye of the beholder- ditto price to be paid.

    Years ago I have seen a bsa hunter in pristine condition go for more than 2k.
    I owned 2, one of them in good condition but with some of the Blueing rubbed and some very small marks on stock and I sold it for $1200 or $1300( don't remember exactly).

    The CF2 is a big lump of a rifle that has no personality at all.
