Thank you for using Blue Book, and Just Answer!My name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to help you.There is precious little information about the British W. Ellis shotguns. They were made in the middle of the 1800s - somewhere around the 1850-1860 range. They are not particularly collectable, so pricing is really based on shootability. The Blue Book does not list W. Ellis shotguns. Based on the condition described, the value should be around $100 to $150. I hope this helps. Philip

Thank you for your response. What would the value be if the gun was not missing the hammers and firing pin? If it was in good functioning condition?
Firearms Expert: Philip Van Cleave, Associate Degree replied 3 years ago
That would improve the value. In it's current condition (non-working), it is considered to be in "poor" condition - a wall-hanger. If it were working, prices would approximately double. Philip
