OK once the weather stays nice people will start having yard sales, and my dad is into flea markets. I know you could run into some gems sometimes.

So what airguns should I look or keep an eye out for? I know some can fetch high prices, or at least high enough to be worth grabbing.

I'm more into shooting modern airguns instead of collecting old ones, but I could find something someone here wants.

In my opinion, look for a Marksman 1790 break-barrel, I had one but it wore out. Came from a garage sale for 15 dollars. Not a hard shooter, but AMAZINGLY accurate, and you could shoot it all day. (You could definitely knock rats in the head with one inside 15 yards). Let me find a photo of one...

If you found one you wanted to resell, I'd probably be interested.

Also, I think Sherridans are fairly sought after; and I personally like the way those Mexican Mendozas look.

Thanks, I'll keep an eye out for the 1790. I know Sherridans can be pricey so I'll watch for those too.
