Can someone give me a rough idea of what a NIB West Hurley drum, and a slightly used Bridgeport drum should go for?
Thanks

NIB WH is around $400, or less. Since the K drums came out the WH dropped very fast. Just because a WH has a box, doesn't make it worth that much more. I've seen them ask more, but they always go home with them.
A used Bridgeport is around the $600 to $800 range, all depending on condition. And how fast you want to move it. Saw a very nice Bridgeport last week-end for $800. He did take it home with him.

You can get a new WH 50 round drum at Numrich for 275.00. Mine was a tight fit on my WH 28 but once I got it to slide on and off it worked fine.

Mike: Somehow I missed the 'K' drums. What be those? A thousand-round drum (pretty good, huh?)?

Get him down to $600 on the Bridgeport and buy it. Take in 6 $100 bills and lay them out. It worked for me several times. If the WH is a WH and not a new "K"rap drum, buy it also.
