More of an Encore fan, but here are some thoughts:
New Contender frame will run you around $360 and a custom heavy/bull 7mm TCU barrel from the likes of E. Arthur Brown will run you anywhere from $375 to to $435 depending on finish.
Add $30 or so for a set of RCBS full length reloading die set, plus $60 for the grip/forend.
Shoulder holsters from Uncle Mike's are usually in the $30 range but like any leather, they can get pricey depending on how fancy they are.
Expect you'll have a better idea on the value of a 4X scope, but typically they don't figure much in to the trade value  unless they are special.
See some Contender Super 14s in 7mm TCU on the auction sites ranging from $289 with bids and a couple more with starting prices at $425 and $599 with no bids.
Your around $900 for a new one less the 4x scope and holster but appears current market value for the setup is in the $375 to $450 range.
