Does anybody know if the refinishing Of an old air rifle that the paint
is in very poor condition lower the value even more than it would
if it was not repainted at all? Greg
And have you been to the Crosman forum?
Your 101 likely isnt a really high dollar airgun (?). Check the price of a "mint" one, then check whatever the most common "good" condition price is.
Does it fire? Do you like it? Ever want to re finish one but havent? Perhaps you could just have some fun working on it, the worst that could come is the value remains the (50%) same.?.
This one had the worst wood you have ever seen before I decided to go ahead and have fun with a $50-100.00 airgun.
Were I set up for powder coat I likely would have done that also. A forum member made a us a very thoughtful trade for this one.
