    Anybody know what a regular Citori trap is worth. This gun has a somewhat high rib, fixed chokes f/m with 30" barrels, it has a monte carlo stock. Has not been shot a whole lot by the looks of it, seems to be in probably 95% shape or better. The guy is asking $1k for it with the factory Browning hard case, does that seem reasonable?

    The year makes a difference.

    Pre Type-1, Type-1, type-2, type-3? Parts are unavailable for some early model Citori's.

    If it's a late one the price seems reasonable.

    The serial number is: 01135PX143
    Does not having the interchangeable chokes hurt it's value? I guess what I'm thinking is if I buy it and it doesn't work for me as well as I hope could I expect to get most/all of my money back?

    1983 model. That is overpriced.

    Shooting coach,
    Why do you think it's overpriced? Is there a "book value" on this gun somewhere? I've been looking for a while at o/u's, don't see very many in this price range. Is it that you don't care for Brownings. I don't mean to sound like I've already made up my mind, just curious about your overpriced opinion. Is there another gun out there comparable for the same money?

    A 1983 would make it a late type, that's good. Parts are available (check with MGW) for repair. If it was REEEAAAL clean it's hard to find a trap model in anything for that kind of money. Look for pits/rust in the bore starting after the chamber area. The fixed chokes make it a little less valuable.
    Good luck.

    shooting coach is right. it is a 1983 model. considering these guns last forever, it's a pretty good buy.have a 1977 model, it still works great and no problems mechanically.
