Hey everyone!

Im new to the forum, and was hoping someone on here could help me out.

Here's the story. I found these 2 T/C Contender's at an estate "hoarder sale buried underneath all kinds of junk. This guy was definitely a gun smith/tinkerer. I was hoping someone could give me some more general info on these and the approx value? Thanks so much

You're going to run into the same problem with any model of gun that has been heavily modded and those have definitely been modded, especially the cut job to the S14. That kind of cut job, even when done, professionally, is a question mark to a lot of buyers. I'd be one of them.

In our neck of the woods, $450 is a typical price for a factory, all original Contender with a standard 22 LR barrel, with a factory 22 LR Match bringing a bit more. Since I already have all the barrels I need, I'd be interested in the frames, some of the wood and the match sights on the Match barrel, meaning I'd offer under that standard $450 price for our area. Again, that's me having an already large collection of Contenders.

Question selling "Match" TCs

Those TCs have been set up for silhouette competition. You might try IHMSA News. The 10" model with the peep set up should bring $450-$500 easily, the 14" including the scope $600 if its a quality scope.
