    My wif'es ex came by to show me a shotgun he had been telling me about. Not much into guns he couldn't tell me much about it or even what kind it was, so one day he finally remembered to bring it over. His father had done quite a bit of dozer work for a local gun club years ago, and when he refused money the president gave him this brand new Winchester Super X-1 in the original box with all the papers. In thirty some-odd years it's only had two or three boxes of shells put through it, and I couldn't believe how nice it is...virtually brand new! Field grade I believe with 28" bbl and full choke. I offered all kinds of trades out of my fifty or so guns, but NO DICE! With the box and all, any idea as to what it's worth? Thanks

    $400-$450. It's not NIB anymore and it's gonna need to be updayed before being used. You have to take both things into account.

    I agree with Ruck...$450 or so, unless the wood is something special(not common for Field grades) and the bluing is 99% (unusal)...

    Put some pictures up if possible...can get better idea

    regards

    I've bought and sold several in the past 3 years. As BigM says, on a field gun about $450 for a clean, NON-UPGRADED , type 3 is tops. Then I install a Wright's upgrade kit and re-sell it. It's very hard to pay more than $450 , do the work, furnish the parts and then make much of a profit. The poster wanted to know what the value is NOW, TO HIM. That is what I based my answer on. A trap or skeet model is obviously worth more, but that wasn't the question.

    Best sellers SXM1....

    Trap, Monte Carlo, highly figured stock,as original with stage 3 trigger, Chrome or SS Mag tube....$650 and higher

    Trap, straight stock, otherwise same...$650 and higher

    Skeet, highly figured stock, as original with stage 3 trigger, Chrome or SS Mag tube...$650 and higher

    Field version, nice wood, upgrades...$500 and higher

    Each gun will always stand on its own merits and this usually dictates price.

    I have a couple for sale now on my website http://www.superxmodel1.com along
    with pictures and prices of older "sold" models some of which I leave up for viewing and examples and comparisons.

    Also for sale, a somewhat rare SXM1 MF NIB, never assembled, never fired, 100% NRA, Collector Grade.

    Of the 90000 manufactured at least 50000 were Field grade for the hunters out there, the rest split between Trap, Skeet and specials.

    Regards....Chuck
