Gun identification help
A relative of mine has several guns that he is considering selling. Problem is, I am having a difficult time finding information on them.
Here is the link to the pictures.
The information that I have from him.
1. Double Barrel Percussion
12 guage / 40 caliber
Brass Butt Plate
Brass Trigger Guard
Brass Patch Box on Shoulder Stock
(on barrel - A.E. Goode)
2. Stevens Falling Block .22
Model 1915 Single Shot
3. Hopkins & Allen 32.40 Falling Block
Open Sights & Peep Sight
(Black Powder) Hex Barrel
4. Boy's Rifle .22 Cal. Single Shot
(replica of M1 Carbine)
The pictures are not in order, sorry.
I am looking for history and possible value range on them.
Any help is appreciated.

nice stuff there, but a little outside the scope of most on this forum.
the double combination is beat, but unusual enough to bring bux in the right venue. WAG i would say 250-500$.
the stevens 22 is between 200$ and 350$.
the H&A is 400$-650$, depending on who is bidding.
the other 22 is under a hundred.
these estimates based on sales in penna, not to devotees of the type.
look for a forum that specialises in black powder muzzleloading and cartridge guns for better advice and a better venue:
If the concept of heading on down to the local Home Depot and transforming $100 worth of random pipe bits into a killing machine doesn’t appeal to you, you’re a frikkin' pansy. Also, you’re probably sane and will live significantly longer than I will.
Nonetheless you disgust me, and I take comfort in the knowledge that your obituary will be nowhere near as humorous as mine.
The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.
Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."
