If you really want to sell it and get best price you need to part it out and sell each separately. Your chances of getting someone other than a dealer or someone who would just turn around and sale the parts to buy it all is VERY slim.

Ed of Ed's TCs will buy it all from you and give you a fair price but realize he is a dealer and won't pay you what an individual might.


REMEMBER GUYS this is a DISCUSSION FORUM. Discussing what it is worth is appropriate. Making him offers on this forum isn't.

I've bought two of these in the last year, and am actively looking for more. The frame will get about $180-200 (new Encores are around $235 so that's your benchmark) barrels will really be a matter of finding the person that wants them, $125-$175 (look at places like gunsamerica.com, auctionarms.com, e-bay, and gunbroker.com for comparison), Your other pieces and parts run the entire range. I've seen wood grips and forends go for $15 and I've seen them go for $100 both on E-bay. I have a friend looking for a frame and I'd unload the rest of the items for him if you're really wanting to keep it together and make a package deal. Send me a PM if interested. Please include serial number of frame.

i have never seen a contender frame ANYWHERE...

listed for less than 235 bucks. most that i have seen go for $250. i would think that you could get at least 150 per barrel. i would suggest that you put an ad in graybeard's classified's. everyone i have dealt with has been exceptional. another thing that i do on occasion is put things for sale at a gun shop on consignment. be clear as what you want for each piece; or if it goes as a package only. get reciepts for everything and have the prices on it. do be aware though, you will need to have someone with a ffl handle the mailing of the frame (most guys charge 15-25 bucks as they have to do paperwork). if you do choose to place an ad in graybeards forums, my LAST piece of advise to you is dont accept the first offer unless it is what you are asking for it. good luck!

Midsouth Shooters Supply, $232.98, Encore pistol frame in blue with walnut grip and forend. S/S Encore pistol frame with rubber grip and forend, $256.92
Can't understand why folks pay $250 at auction sites with no grips.
