Help me evaluate Inherited Dad's Inglis Mk1?

Hey everyone! Reading a ton about a gun I inherited from dear old dad.


it is a Inglis Mk1 with frame slide and barrel Serial # of 7T9369


I would call it 8/10 condition. No history or info... just something My dad had.



I have an interested party who wants it... But I am clueless on real value... the auctions are all over. I want to make this family friend a fair deal (he wants to trade something for my kids... so wife is pushing me).



I wont make the cardinal sin of saying I have enough guns... but if this deal works, I need to do it. I would love your opinions...











Thanks, Carson

Never owned an Inglis but have read the book. Thought about buying one as I have family in Toronto but it never made it to the top of the priority list.

I would guess at least 900 and maybe up to 1200 or more depending on buyer and details of the gun.
They don't make them any more, original finish is rarer and rarer these days.
I would think you could get the higher range price for this one.
I have seen refinished ones marked AF go for the 600-700 range and this is much nicer than those.
Past GB auctions for refinished example with eroded serials, replaced extractor, closed at over 900.
Another refinished 7T with eroded serials went for 1025
An updated 8T No. 2 with worn refinish went for 950

Not an expert by any means and not even a super experienced enthusiast. I have been watching and looking at High Powers for 20 years or so and own a more recent FN example.

Is what the interested party is trading worth a grand?


Hope this is of some assistance

Not to be too intrusive but make sure you won't regret selling/trading your Dad's gun some day.

Thanks! I just wanted to make sure I wasn’t getting or screwing.

Yes. It’s a portable livestock scale worth a grand.

My only comment is that at some time in the future, as you get older, you may regret having sold something of your dad's that you could have kept for sentimental reasons and in his memory. Also, you may regret not keeping it to pass down to your kids when you start to settle your affairs for the inevitable.

I think 1200 is a bit high, but it is a nice, honest, historical pistol. I would put it in the $700-900 range.
