    Was wondering what the value of this Frigon Trap gun is worth. Has 2 barrels also. I think it was made by Marocchi.

    Thanks,

    $500 - $700 with one barrel and hard to sell. I bought one of his first guns at Vandalia face to face with Frenchy many years ago. It was a decent gun for the price. I paid $400 but that was in the 80's

    You are correct, made by Marocchi in Italy. FT-1 Manufactured between 1986-94. Vent rib, offered in 32 or 34 inch barrel. MSRP was $1,100, but knowing Frenchy nobody ever paid that.

    Bluebook for an FT-1 100%-$925, 98%-$675, 95%-$525, 90%-$435, 80%-375, 70%-$350, 60%-$295.

    Replacement parts are an issue with these guns now, most all the parts would have to be made.

    An interesting little piece of shooting history with the import of these guns by Frenchy Frigon. His idea was to help make shooting more affordable by providing a good quality gun at a fair price, and at that time it was. I have seen some real good scores broken with these guns.

    cubancigar2000 has it right on price and sellable value, but if this gun is in decent shape, for that money however it would be a step up for an entry level shooter on a budget. A shooter who may be shooting trap with a hunting gun now.
