You can also check out.........ARMSLIST.COM...........Answer the question (YES) that you agree not to do anything embarrassing or dumb while your checking the site. Then click on a state and then ML'ers. There you'll get prices and pics of the rifles. May help you with yours.
I check there once a week usually IN,MI,WI. KY and Iowa. These states are closest to me.
GOOD LUCK.

If you are looking to sell locally online sites might not be worth that much.

When traditional style guns were needed to hunt deer they were easier to sell. With the influx of "modern" muzzleloaders that is no longer the case. There is a reason that TC and CVA no longer make traditional sidelocks.
Last year I was able to buy a TC Renegade in good condition from a local dealer for 100 bucks. Garage sale prices are running about the same. The Hawken model might go a little higher, and the New Englander higher than the Hawken.
Try hitting a few gun shows and gun shops without the guns just to check out what other individuals and dealers are asking. If you are near any shows that cater to pre-1898 that is a real good place to visit. Most websites dealing with muzzleloaders have free classifieds. Check those out as well.
One thing about online vendors and dealers in general. Their prices are going to be on the (really) high side. Recently a well known online vendor was offering a semi-custom flintlock pistol, used, for a few hundred dollars more than it could be bought new from the maker. When selling or buying, do your homework.

I think the problem with selling online is that people won't look twice at a side lock unless it's real cheap or highly unusual. Real cheap usually means $150 to $250. If the guns are are in really good shape, then only a hands-on inspection can result in a good price.

Try selling locally for the highest price. If they were flintlocks, you could probably get a good price in PA just before their primitive weapons hunt late in the year.
