    I really don,t think a 30 or 32 inch barrel makes any difference . A clean Broadway Trap (97%) is worth $1600.00 . If it has better then average wood $1800.00 .

    For comparison, I paid $1050 for a 1963 SK/LT 32" Broadway trap this year. Great wood, needed action tightening

    Here are a couple of factors fairly unique to these guns as a group

    1. They made a lot of them

    2. Originally people valued them more than citoris just because they cost more to make and because there was the anti jap deal- Some people "remember" those days and think the same rules apply now.

    3. They in fact are nowhere good as a citori

    4. If you put a constraint on anything ( for example you want a particular model that was made in a particular year---there will be fewer of them as you fine tune those limitations) but that doesnt mean there is collectors value for the limitation you put on - in fact it could mean the opposite- that they are less desireable)------------ but because you have put those limiting constraints on- you might not find one for sale at any particular moment in time.

    5. There just isnt a collector's preminum on these guns (with a very few exceptions)

    regards from Iowa

    Thanks Gene---I just like the old superposed---They remind me of my youth---I have a 64 lightning that I shoot once in a while and I break as many targets with it as I do my K-guns---Love my K-guns though---sjb
