    Milbro G10 .177 pistol, what's it worth?

    I have a Seventies 177 Milbro G10 USA made pistol in excellent order in box, for BB's and pellets though when I try a slug it is failing to fire, though a BB is fine...any idea what this is worth or the problem with the ammo, thanks

    Hi. I like these, and have one, which I keep for nostalgia. Your G10 is probably not firing pellets properly because it is old and tired inside. These were never that powerful in the first place however, as were basically a BB plinker for children, and even when brand new, seldom mustered more than 0.75ft.lb of power. So to value. Well imo, in mint condition and boxed, maybe 25 plus post absolute tops? But as is malfunctioning as described, a fiver posted max. Hope this helps . Atb: G.

    Gareth! Unfair! 5 just 'cos it is a bit tired? I did a complete rebuild on one of these just for fun, not difficult at all provided you can get the clip and washer (I got 2 sets just in case). Even tired I would say 15-20 posted and as you say, in decent nick 25 plus post.

    I have 2 of them one marked Milbro the other Diana.

    if its old and faulty theres no way you could get 20 for it. 5 posted is a bit low considering it will cost about 5 To post. as long as its not too battered you should get 5 plus postage but i doubt anyone will pay more than that.

    ... Agreed. Was a bit tight of me saying 5 posted, so yep, 5 plus post (call it 10 all in), is probably much fairer . Atb: G.

    On a different note, have had to remove a few posts from this thread, which imho got dangerously close to breaking the rules as in this sticky: http://www.airgunbbs.com/forums/showthread.php?t=372921, so said posts were deleted before they potentially emerged from the grey area, to become as black as black ... Do please be careful chaps.

    ... Yep, completely, utterly, and entirely agree, which is why I bowed to the above.
