Default What is this worth?

I have decided to get rid of my handguns in preference of a shotgun. I have a springfield mil spec I added wilson and ed brown parts to and its a bit scratched up. What type of shotgun would you say something like this is worth? Pump? Semi autos?

Get a Maverick pump for about $200. It's a good shotgun by Mossberg.

No Remingtons from the Express line.

Keep your 1911.

Keep looking but do not give up your handgun. Have patience.

I did similar and got a Mossy 590 for 350 on sale. Impressed and feel over armed with it. I do consider getting a GP100 in the near future!

If possible try and post pics to better grade what you might be selling.
There are still shotguns out there if ya look hard enough.
Myself I would keep the pistol and go with the 88,while I am not adverse to a 590 at all,it isnt THAT much difference.
Me I am gona pick up a 870 when all the panic stops as I dont want to get stuck having the store close up.Saw a 590 for a good price and it is still there cause they are not doing any selling right now I might always decide to go with that just because.
But that opinion comes from someone that has a lot of shotguns.

Exclamation

I KNOW I saw shotguns in the marketplace for sale in the past week.


You could ask about there for a trade, but as plentiful and cheap as Mossberg 500's are, I'd hang onto the 1911, & keep searching the usual retail culprits - on-line as you have to, if not in person.

Nice pistol.
I wouldnt mind having that myself.
Just try and wait a bit.
Put some wood on my 7+1 88 for under 300 all total and you would have to look close to see any difference from a 590 with wood if you could even find one with wood.
I would trade you but it wouldnt be a fair trade considering the market right now.

Those new retro mossbergs look pretty nice, but i think I'll sell it and see what I come across. I have my s&w, so im not worried about not being able to defend my home

Yeah keep what ya got.
Drove by several gun stores yesterday just to check it out,they all had long lines out the door,asked the first guy in line at the door and he had been waiting 2.5 hours just to get in.
NOT worth it unless you already bought and waiting in line for a pickup.

Yes and you WILL regret it later.

Someone mentioned Big 5. That is a good start, a really good start actually.

ETA: I forgot the earlier posts you made in this thread but have you contacted your LGS's at all?

Don’t trade that for a shotgun. But if you really feel the need I got a Winchester 1300 defender and a 870 set up for HD that I could part with.

Please, DO NOT TRADE that for a shotgun. A lot of us have sold guns off and have regretted it. I know there are a few I wish I still had. That is a really nice looking 1911 and I bet it shoots great.

If possible, try to be patient until this all blows over. I bet the used market is going to be saturated with first time buyers who will want to sell their guns that were bought during this panic.
