Check the classifieds here, and also at gunbrokerDOTcom, to see what is selling, for what price and what isn't. Be honest when comparing condition, and remember that originality is as, if not more, important as condition.

I'd consider first consider getting rid of anything that wasn't right, or may have been refinished. I'd keep the carbine and the cadet, maybe the early rifle, especially IF it was all original, including the rare M1877 sight (with slotless screws) and long-comb narrow-inletted stock.

One clear choice: unless it is pristine, or you really have an attachment to it, 522091 would be the first out the door, as it is the most common (thus easily replaceable).

Just my $.02
