Default Octagon Barrel worth

I have an opportunity to pick up 18 octagon barrels in various lengths and calibers and was looking to get an idea on what they may be worth.

About 175 - 300 each depending on condition and caliber. Some calibers are more desirable that others. The Rochester made barrels seem to draw a premium as well. Buy low, sell high! Good luck!

They take a special for grip, keep that in mind if you are going to use them. and the grips are getting hard to find and may bring more money than the regular round barrel grip.

Deaconllb is correct but I think he means the forearm.
around these parts the octagon barrels are a hard sell, most no one wants them, I had a 30/30 one that took me a long time to sell locally, and then only got $100 for it.

The 10" octagon barrel chambered in a unique cartridge can bring high demand, 357/44 B&D, 30 M1, many other obscure ones.
Short rear sight and snap-on forearms are also features of early makes and desired.
Other octagon barrels such as .222 Rem are too plentiful to garner high dollar.
Forearms for octagon barrels are, as mentioned, a commodity.
Good luck!

Think twice, shoot once...

If I remember correctly I never owned but one of them and the only way I got rid of it was a fellow had a snap on forgrip and wonted a barrel for it, we traded strait across round barrel for the octagon.

I put a Patchmayr forearm on mine, looks weird, but shoots well.
