  • I don't know about your specific model, but I do know a bit about Burgos. Burgo was a line of inexpensive firearms produce in West Germany during the 1950's and 60's. They were generally banned from importation after the passage of the Gun Control Act of 1968, which imposed a set of standards required to import firearms into the US. One of these standards mandated a minimum size in order to reduce the number of easily concealable handguns being brought in. Burgo firearms generally are not considered valuable except to niche collectors. If yours was brougt in before GCA'68, the importer's barrel stamp will be missing, increasing the value somewhat. If a gunsmith has inspected it and declared it to be in good working order, it has more value as a shooting piece and may be suitable for a "kit gun", the kind kept in a tackle box or other wilderness kit to help deal with snakes at close range.
