    I am thinking of replacing my 30" k80 skeet barrels with a 10 by 6 tapered ( i believe) flat rib, screw in steel chokes 0-4, non-ported. They are in excellent condition but I would really prefer 32" barrels with a higher rib. i shoot msotly trap and really prefer a higher rib like on the unsingle barrel etc. I find that these barrels don't give me the site picture of the longer barrel and would really like some O/U barrels with a adj POI. I'm looking at a value of these. I would think they would be worth in the $2000- $2,500 range. They are aproximately 10 years old and have been shot very little.

    are you sure the rib isnt 8x7 or 12-8?

    screw in ejector or not?

    condition?

    wear?

    alterations to the bore?

    all these affect value and then again you have to sell it--so there has to be a buyer and a seller-

    I have to measure the rib again but I believe it was 10-6 flat, ejectors, I'd rate the condition above 95%, no real wear and no alterations to the bore. Bore's are mirror bright.

    The barrels you describe have been offered (not necessarily selling) for well under $2K -- usually somewere around $1500 to $1700. The ejectors with the screw in them is, for some reason, a turn-off for a lot of shooter's. No real reason as they function just like and as well as the one's without the screw.

    The flat rib barrel also isn't a favorite of most trapshooter's with the preference being the tapered-step rib --- or the higher trap special or pro ribs.

    The amount of blue wear etc will also affect the price. If someone offers yoy $2K jump on it and if I really wanted to sell them I wouldn't turn down $1700.

    There are a lot of barrels for sale floating around the internet and it's driven the prices down.

    If it has screws in the ejector it is going to be an 8-7 rib most likely( there were some others including broadways but 95 percent it is 8-7)

    It is not going to be 10-6

    Assuming everthing is factory and it is an 8-7 in 95 percent condition with factory threads for chokes-- the price range is going to be $1650-$2100 depending on how much you want to sell it and how much someone wants to buy it

    If you trade it to a dealer and they claim they are giving you more- actually they are just charging a lot more for the other barrel

    I was just trying to remember the rib from memory when I measured them. I assumed the value was around what you guys mentioned. I'd like to sell them before I go looking for new ones. I'll post them and see what kind of offers I get for them.
    Thanks guys..

    Update,
    The barrels do not have screws in the ejectors. The rib width measures 12mm at the receiver to 8 mm at the barrel end (width) and is 8mm high at the receiver to 2 mm at the barrel end.

    So to recap they are 30", choked with 0-4 factory steel krieghoff chokes, no screws in ejectors, barrels bores unmodified, mirror finish. bluing extremely good over 95% more like 97%.

    That is a very tempting offer.... How about your broken clay latch of your gold super scroll? I can take it off with a screw driver.
