I have a 20 ga 870 Wingmaster with a 28" barrel and satin walnut wood that I would like to sell. It's less then a year old with maybe 20 rounds through it, over all I would say 98%.
I've looked in the gun value books and I like the price that they say it should be worth but I wouldn't pay that for a used gun. I've taken it to the gun shop to trade in ($125.00) at that price I should just keep it.
Anyone have what they would call a fair price that they would pay for this gun...I'm just trying to get an idea of a fair price. When it's your gun you want to get the most for it but I don't want to try to sell it and keep dropping the price.
Thanks for the help and I'm not going to be offended by others opinions.

Most gun dealers works on the principle that your gun used is worth half the price of a new one.

Normal mark up is 30%

Which means that the gun that you bought for $300, only cost them $210!

With that in mind, they are not going to pay more for a used gun than what they can buy a new gun with a warranty...

So you should think of it as an investment, keep it and use it or give it to your kids - now or in the future. Heirlooms are not something that was bought today and sold tomorrow!

Your gun should be worth $200 - $275 on the open market!
