    Let's try this again. I am considering buying a Beretta 302 Trap Special with a 30" barrel and an adjustable butt plate as a back up gun.

    I have never heard of this gun before and can not find any hardly any information on the internet or any similar guns for sale. The seller says it is very clean, does not appear to have been fired much, and only has one blemish which is on the forearm.

    Wondering if anyone has ever heard of this gun and if so any idea on what the general value would be?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    It's about identical to the 303 Beretta, but the major difference is some nice looking machined (not by hand) scrollwork on the receiver. Some the earlier 302's and 303's were surpringly pretty considering the production line bluing and wood. Worth about the same as a 303 in equivalent configuration and condition. Generally a pretty gun.

    Blue Book lists top value around $400. I think anything around that would be a fair price. It came before the Beretta 303. I have paid $450 for a 303 trap and $500 for a 390 trap. Mark

    Does top value mean 99% or better? Does it take into account extras like a the adjustable butt plate or don't those types of things increase the value?

    Actually, the Blue Book lists the 302 at 100% as worth $395, which IMO is a bit low. Modifications usually don't add value, unless it's a well done adjustable comb. Mark

    A way more reliable gun than the 11-87/1100. I shot one for doubles for years. I agree with Oregunner on $400 being a little low. You should be able to find comparable guns on line at some of the large trap gun dealers.

    You would be fortunate in deed to find a Beretta 300 series trap gun for $400 in any condition.

    The prices of clean Berettas are on the rise with nice trap wood that the older guns had they fetch 600.00 to 800.00 for excellent condition guns with the wide rib..Try to buy one at auction 400.00 is a joke now condition is the key I have seen 300.00 guns but would not buy them.

    A 303 TS beater $375+, a well worn 303 TS is around $475-$500, a good clean shooter $550-650 and a Cherry probably $675 or more. add $50-$75 for a 32" barrel.

    It looks like you can get $400 just for a 32" barrel by itself. Mark

    Going to look at it on Monday. I will take my money with me. I really just want a second gun so that I can take my dad and neighbors out to try shooting trap.

    The wording stamped on my Beretta barrels are stamped "special trap" and not trap special? Just thought I'd throw that out there.
