    A high school buddy died and he had a 870 Wingmaster magnum 3" model with vent rib and mod barrel. It is in absolute perfect condition with no dings, rust, blems what so ever. Blue and slide show zero wear. I really doubt it was ever shot. No box or paperwork. Can anybody with a recent blue book give me a fair market value on something like this so I can pass onto family? Thank you, Len

    Len, The current issue of the NRA magazine "American Rifleman" has this exact shotgun model featured on the back pages in the "I have this old gun" article. The stated value is $495...seems reasonable. Best Regards, Ed

    A gun's monetary "value" is, by definition, exactly equal to what it can be sold for.

    Aside from certain accounting/taxation purposes, this is true for any asset.
