1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    I have a friend who is interested in selling an unfired Grade 5 Winchester Super X-1 trap. It doesn't have a box. It does have highly figured B carved wood and seven gold inlays. It also has a 30" barrel with a full choke. There is only one minor handling mark to the wood. This beautiful shotgun was engraved by Pauline Muerrle, who was a Winchester engraver, but she engraved this gun sometime after she left Winchester in the #5 pattern. The price is now $5,500 shipped & insured to your FFL. The ser.# is M29xx. Partial trades considered.

    Thank you,

    Steve

    Blue book does not take into account, the emotion and want factor. That is why pictures of the guns really add value to a sale. If someone has been looking for a gun for a long time and now see it available, they will pay more. Timing sometimes can make a big difference.


    Bluebook is only a reference, or starting point. Sometimes it can be off by $400 or more as to what a gun sells for.

    As for the gun being an SX-1 there might not be that many out there at this grade. Unfired helps if it is collectable. Problem with the lower production, is you can't use the prior sales, or current listings for reference.

    As for price, I would start a little higher and see what the response is, minus the critics. See what kind of offers come in. It is better than starting to low. IMO. Jon

    Great Lakes Sporting has one for $2500, is this gun factory engraved? Is it signed? These things can add value as well. Serial#?

    My guess would be in the $4,500 range based on a few I have seen sold.

    George,

    Pics are forthcoming, in the meantime, what knowledge can you share on the value of a Super X-1 like this one?

    Thanks for the feedback. Pictures have been added. My friend said it is worth $6,000 and that is the number I questioned. He'll sell it for $6,000 shipped and insured to your FFL.

    Rick, it has one little mark on the buttstock that is barely noticable, but it needed to be mentioned. Marks get on guns from people handling them and not being careful. The ser.# is M29xx

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Pauline had a place on GunBrokers- Ask The Experts- for a while and answered a lot of questions that are still in the archives.

    She has her own web-site now, and may be able to answer questions about your Winchester engraving.

    Depends who did the engraving. Better close up pictures would help too.
