    I ran across a 12 ga 28" full choke Smith shotgun and is probably 90 percent. I buy inexpensive guns for resale so wondered what would be a good price for this gun. I have quit looking at blue book because it's rarely close to the real price you can get for guns. Case in point is some Savage 24's in 22mag over 20 ga for blue book price of less that $200.00. One is a fancy model that I was offered $500.00 for and was offered $350.00 for the plain jane one. I'm not trying to make a killing on the guns but do it to make a little money to pay for my shooting. Thanks for your response. Jackie B.

    Jack, There are several models and that would make a difference in value. They avg from $300 - $450 if they are 90% or better. The highest value and best seller is usually the super skeet model. My experience has been the trap does not sell well. the 1000 does not have a good reputation for reliabilty

    Thanks for your reply, Cuban. I thought I should be able to get $350.00 out of it around here. I picked it up for $200.00 so to me it's a pretty good profit for just cleaning the gun. I bought a 1100 a couple weeks ago for $175.00 and was going to sell it but have enjoyed shooting it so may keep it. Oh, and I saw your responses about the 454 SS. My brother has two of them, one with a radical 454 that is putting out 850 HP, the other has 375 HP I think. He's still got his 67 Camaro he bought in 68 but has changed out the motor to a 383 stroker. Before I quit drag racing I would irritate the heck out of him with my 89 mustang and 78 trans Am. They were both pretty quick for street cars. LOL Jackie B.

    S&W 1000s, cheap aluminum crap made during the Bangor Punta years. Worth whatever you can get for them. Not durable, not reliable, but when we had them we could parlay them into some nice, but rugged, 29s and 27s.

    For those who don'tknow....it was like Obama running the gun business.

    Smith and Wesson made the 1000 Trap that had steel receivers and a high rib. Wonder what they are worth. JM

    JM1079- They don't sell well. Several have been on GB over the years and I dont remember any selling

    The Trap and Super Skeet, and also the 3" Magnum had steel receivers and are worth more.

    They live on these days as the Mossberg automatic. The Smith were made by Howa.

    I take exception to the comments on the Model 1000 reliability.
    I've owned three and still have the super Skeet.They all worked great.
    The only problem was the rubber buffer in the early guns. They had
    a tendency to come apart. The after market rubber buffer solved that
    problem.
