• Hey All! Lately there has been more and more scammers on the forum board. They register and replies to members requests for guns and/or parts or other things. The reply contains a gmail or hotmail address or similar ”anonymous” email addresses which they want you to reply to. DO NOT ANSWER ANY STRANGE MESSAGES! They often state something like this: ”Hello! Saw your post about purchasing a stock for a Safari. KnuckleheadBob has one. Email him at: [email protected]” If you receive any strange messages: Check the status of whoever message you. If they have no posts and signed up the same day or very recently, stay away. Same goes for other members they might refer to. Check them too and if they are long standing members, PM them and ask if the message is legit. Most likely it’s not. Then use the report function in each message or post so I can kick them out! Beware of anything that might seem fishy! And again, for all of you who registered your personal name as username, please contact me so I can change it to a more anonymous username. You’d be surprised of how much one can find out about a person from just a username on a forum such ad our! All the best! And be safe! Jim

Postings about valuation of rifles

A frequent question asked on the forum board is ”What is my rifle worth?”.

This is an almost impossible question to answer for many reasons. First, we are an international forum with members from all over the globe and prices vary from location to location. What is true in Australia isn´t neccessary the same as in Europe or USA.

Condition of the rifle in question is another parameter important to value and it is impossible for us at the forum to judge condition from pics and descriptions no matter how good and accurate they are.

There are also many other important parameters like caliber, model and scarcity plus a few more.

The best way to find out about your rifle is to use the search function and scan our forum for information. We have loads of good information hidden here so knock yourself out!

Another way is to visit internet auction sites, dealer websites and search engines like Google.

For example, if you are living in North America use the big auction sites. You´ll find what you need there.
But make sure you search for realized prices. Asking prices is one thing but you should go for what the rifles actually sold for.

If you choose to ask about your rifles on the forum board you must do so in the new Valuation section placed in the General section. If you place your questions elsewhere they may be moved without notice.

Finally, to do a proper valuation one must actually see the rifle in question and weigh in all the local parameters mentioned above and use ones own Sako experience. Everything else will only be educated guesses without real value in the end.

Remember! A rifle is only worth what a buyer is willing to pay so you won´t know what your rifle really is worth until you have sold it!

Topics we do not allow

Advertising your own products or services in a commercial way is not allowed without the authorisation from Sako Collectors Club. This includes links to other forums. And as you can read further down this T&C it is not considered good netiquette to harass other members with inquiries to purchase rifles or other items. This is NOT allowed here. Use the Buy&sell site!

Offensive, rude or any other impropriate pictures will be removed as soon as possible.
