Default Value of citori 20ga special steel?

Does anyone have a Kelly blue book of gun values laying around? I have been given the task of selling a few guns of my father in laws for my mother in law. Last one to go is a browning citori special steel with 26" barrels. This is 20ga with 3" chambers. I would put the gun around 85-90%. It was a hunting gun but he wasn't pounding brush with it.

I have a guy coming tomorrow to look at it, can't really find much about it.

Thanks

Wish you lived close to me. Let me know if it doesn't sell and give me your asking price.

ebonitekid767 - Citori Special steel? You sure that's the model? Most Special Models are 12ga. There's a Special Skeet model, in 20 ga, but you have to know what grade it is, to get an idea of the correct price.

I think what you might have is a Citori Upland Special. Here is a brief description: 12, 16,(mfg. 1989 only), or 20 ga. (2 3/4 in. chambers), shortened checkered straight grip walnut stock (14 in. LOP) and Schnabel forearm, 24 in. barrels, blue finish, Invector (12 ga. disc. 1993) or Invector Plus choking, 6-6 3/4 lbs. Mfg. 1984 - 2000.

Most of this description matches what you said except for the length of the barrels. 80% to 95% is from $600 - $800. BUT my Kellys Blue book is the 29th Edition, from 2008. Prices have gone up from then. Best of luck.

The shotgun in the photo does not have a straight grip. It looks like a standard Citori to me, but with beautiful wood and the knob pistol grip.

Please put it up for sale here if your visitor doesn't buy it.

Mannyrock - Oops1 You're right, I didn't notice the grip. I was trying to get him a quote, based on the model name given.
