    I have a friend that wants to sell a couple of his shotguns, I'm not familiar enough with the current market to advise him. Both are two barrel sets, the first is a Browning Broadway one set of barrels is choked Full/Full the other IM/Full very nice gun. The other is a Remington 3200 12 gauge 26 inch skeet/skeet and 20 gauge 28" skeet/skeet, also very nice both guns are aprox 95-98%, Also both guns are in Browning hard cases. I know pricing sight unseen is not possible but if we had a range to advise him it would be helpful. I'll get some pics and post them up here if anyone is interested.

    What happens here is that people that own similar guns will give you a value 50-100 percent higher than the most optimistic possibility

    A supperposed while once a desirable gun is now not so desirable- its not as well made or with as many features as a citori - there is no collector value except under unsual conditions-

    My range for the supperposed with the extra set of barrels- assuming they are 30 inch barrels is somewhere between $900 and $1800 dollars- pretty wide range

    The Remington 3200 has a lot of problems with poor materials- larger parts have to be made which is very expensive, forearm irons, forearms, safety and barrel selector parts break all too often-- breach faces get eroded--- the 26 inch barrel is not in demand at all-- the spare 20 gauge barrel is likely a simmons- assuming the main barrel is a factory barrel I would say this gun with both barrels is worth somewhere between $750-900

    I think genes assessment of values is a good one. Same problem going on with the AR 15 market.....way over priced. 129.00 lower recievers are trying to be sold for 250.00 !!!!

    BUT!!!!! people are paying the prices
    Guns are like anything else. If you have the time to sit on them you may get the highest price possible
    If some one really WANTS the particular gun, you get the highest price

    If you just want to sell your guns because you do not have a need for them and want to be fair, they will sell at a good price and sell quickly

    Im nor quite sure I understand the collecting gun marget for hunting/sporting guns which should be shot until cant be shot no more. Anything else just aint fun

    Some of the commments above are nonsense. Putting an accurate price on an unseen gun is not easy.

    The Remington 3200 is a desirable gun with a very good mechanical trigger. If the gun has been updated, a two barrel set in a hard case would bring about $1800. HMB

    Well lets see the cheapest 3200 I have seen on here was 1295.00 and the barrel had been ported so it was basically ruined? No collecter value for a superposed? That should start a uproar let's just wait and see. Look on gunsamerica or gunbroker you will get a lot better answer than you have gotten so far. And contrary to the opinions expressed above you will find some interest here.

    If there is no collector value in standard grade Supers, please show me where I can buy the subgauge models for the price of a comparable condition used Citori?

    I by no means know jack crap about guns.
    What I do know, put your own value on it.
    If its high it wont sell
    If its low you will be swamped with calls/door knocking
    if it is priced right it will sell to a happy buyer and seller.
    This applies to just about anything

    I have a glenfield mod25 .22l Lr short, some say these are junk, mine shoots great I would need 250.00 to part with that gun. actual worth about 75 bucks

    Find the high and the low asking prices out there and split the difference,according to condition of course. The superposed has so many models and configurations its insane.

    Gun Broker in particular is not a good site( because of the false bid problem possible and running up bids)- Guns America is slightly better but both are really just "catalog" sites for most of the listers- not all

    Those places might be good for a price comparison on "new" guns

    Lots of people use those services just to list their own guns- the price is often meant to be nothing but a sucker trap but it does open up conversations and occassionally you do catch a sucker.
