I asked in two gun shops how much I could get for a never fired Traditions .32 caliber squirrel gun or Davy Crockett I believe its called.  They just shook their head and said that they can't get rid of them.  They said everybody wants the inlines.  I think I'll put an ad in the local paper.  
Anyone have a recent gun bluebook and would be so kind as to give me a quote.  Im also selling my New England blackpowder rifle in blue.  That was only shot once but I decorated it with tacks.  A look I admire.

You've got a nice one there.
But top dollar at resale dictates original condition, the tacks may add a nostalgic motif that suit your tastes but they lower the resale value tremendously.
I know they don't affect the functionality of the rifle but cosmetically it relegates it's appeal to a small niche market.
I myself have garishly dressed guns in the past and hold them as sentiments of my youth. Upon resale of them, considerations would have to be made.
I like Traditions products, I've got a Pursuit in .50, and a Buckhunter pistol in .54... some of my favorite BP guns.
Try entertaining trade offers and see what comes your way.

It definitely is a smaller niche these days. Check with dhaverstick here on BTO. Darren sure does appreciate the more traditional  black powder rifles.

I apologize for getting your hopes up but I will keep it.  Ive got a Dixie ,32 Tennessee rifle with both locks that are interchangeable.  I took it to several blanket shoots and it was deadly accurate.  I just watched a video where they showed the reproduction rifle from the Mountain Man movie.  It has tacks put in it.  My guns are not high priced specially made custom guns so I value them in my hands when they look like indian trade guns.  My kids can give them away when Im dead.  Im even thinking about personalizing my knew flintlock deer hunter like the gun from the Mountain Man Movie.
Just to share this with you so you can prevent this from happening to you.  I propped this Tennessee rifle against the kitchen counter with the butt on my hardwood floor.  I turned around to get something and it fell and the stock cracked and broke.  It made me so sick I could have puked.  So beware if you prop your guns up and avoid sickening occurrences.

Today I took the base plate to the synthetic stock of my Traditions Deerhunter and added some lead balls in a sandwich bag and wrapped that all up in a plastic grocery bag and stuffed it in the stock.  It feels balanced now.
I was thinking about decorating with tacks but one look dampened that idea.  Its to modern looking and to slim.  It would look ridiculous.
