Default What is my Desert Eagle 44mag worth on trade in for a rifle?

I have a Desert Eagle 44 Mag that's in real good condition. I never shoot it and it's too big to carry around so it just sit's in my safe. Here lately I've been thinking about trading it in on a new 270. I currently have a nice Weatherby 7mm mag but I figure I could get more use out of the 270 than I could the pistol. I called a gunshop today and they wouldn't even give me an idea of what it would be worth on a trade in without looking at it. Before I go looking for a trade I would like to know whats the least I should take for it? I don't want to get taken for a ride. I blue booked it once before and it was worth a pretty good chunk but for trading, I may not expect as much. What's the bottom dollar you would take for this gun on a trade in. I'm not desperate, but I want to be reasonable. Here are two pics that I just took of it.

Thanks everyone. You all seem pretty consistent so I won't take less than $700. I was thinking today that maybe I should wait till February to trade since that is when duck and every other season will be over. Am I thinking in the right direction that after modern gun season that a lot of deer hunters will trade rifles in on new shotguns for duck hunting? Plus I would think the gun shops would slow down and be more reasonable on their deals to try and get some business durring the slow part of the year.

You also have the holidays coming up. Don't know if that makes a big difference or not, but a 44DE certainly has some novelty to it.

THere are three different versions of .44 Desert Eagles: The Mark I, Mark XIX and Mark VII.

I'm guess that yours is the Mark I since it has the distinctive teardrop shaped safety lever and single serration on the slide release.

Your gun appears to be in 95-98% condition.

Blue book on these models is $750-775 for 95% or $850 to $950 in 98%.

Then you can subtract ~25% for the dealers profit.

So under $600 is very possible depending on what you do with it.

I would sell it to a private part you'll likely get more money.
