I have a Benjamin Franklin Air Pistol (model 137...177 cal.)

I have a Benjamin Franklin Air Pistol (model 137...177 cal.) that was bought in 1939, I have the original box, instruction sheet & in the box is a little round tin with some of the original pellets that came with the purchase of the gun, it is in good condition & I would like to know just what its worth today....

Hi! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am pleased to assist you.


Based on recent similar sales, this item will normally retail in the price range of $135 to $275 to a collector. I recently sold one from 1940 in very similar condition for $225. The price really depends more on the condition of the box and the outside finish of the piece, not on whether it works or not.
