What is a EIG Model E15 22LR pistol in great condition worth?
EIG Model E15 22 LR serial# 316258 German Made
dj is right keep it
First off, go back right now and XXX the last three digits of the serial number you posted. No sense in giving some miscreant out there in cyberland a legitimate pistols serial number.
EIG is actually the importer, not the maker. These were imported in large quantities in the 1950s and 1960s until the 1968 Gun Control Act prohibited them. EIG imported all kinds of cheap handguns from mostly Post-War Germany and Japan (remember, these countries were devistated by WWII and their manufacturing capabilities were terrible). They sold for $12 and up back then and mostly sold through mail order, as no one in their right mind would buy one once they got a look at the quality.
These are uniformly very cheap, low quality, recycled scrap metal guns with little, if any collector value today. I would be cautious of even shooting that pistol, even though it's only a .22.
Sorry to be so blunt....I sure hope you didn't have your hopes up that Grandpa left you a treasure.....
Excellent condition, in the box with paperwork....maybe $85. No box or papers Excellent, $60. Worn good to poor $45-20. Anybody gives you more than that, you take the money and consider it a good day!
