    Hi I came across a like new 90t at a local sportsman's club recently and was wondering if the $2700 asking price was fair. The wood is in great shape no dings or scratches, it has an adjustable comb and butt plate(not a gracoil), low rib barrel and is ported. The side plates have what im guessing is custom engraving, they don't say "Remington 90-T". It also comes with a nice aluminum case that says "Remington 90-T" inside if I remember correctly. If someone could let me know if this is a fair deal and if not how much is it really worth that would be great, Thanks - Greg

    not an expert on the 90T. I have always heard they are a good gun, I think the Hi rib is worth more. I believe that is at the high end, but if you like it and it fits and it is in top condition I would make an offer starting around $2,000 just my 2 cents

    The price seems high.
    Without seeing it a low rib gun would go $1700 - $2000

    They sold new for about 1700.00. Not good enough gun to go for much more now.

    Well I sure would NOT want to disagree with ANYONE but,2000.00 -2200.00 is a GOOD price for a like "NEW" 90T.Remember some people "downgrade" the 90T because they have NEVER owned one.!!!!!!!!!!Adj.comb,adj. butt plate and a NICE case. I sure think 2200.00 is about right but, what the hell do i know. Joe joe90t

    joe90t,

    How many of those guns do you own? LOL NAH,you don't know nuttin' about them dang things. HAHA!

    At any rate, I bought a 90t from a poster on this site last February. Pretty much an original gun except it has flush choke tubes. 34" barrel. Best damn trap gun I ever shot. Mine was the one that Remington used in their centerfold print ads for the gun--I have the documentation from Remington that states that. It is the low rib gun. I would say that it is in 85%+ range for wear etc. Came with one little ding in the stock. Tron fixed that. He also installed a new recoil pad, a Kick-eez. I paid $1900 for the gun.

    Low rib gun with an adjustable comb and butt plate, ported... if not factory done, by whom and what else was tinkered with?! What is the position of the its "action release" lever - 5 o'clock, 6 o'clock? Does the gun's locking bolt and/or its forearm iron need to be updated? Does the gun have its original tools and manual?

    A great looking gun may have been shot substantially, requiring a tune-up with new springs and some additional rejuvenation expenses - the guns are 15 +/- years old... caveat emptor...

    Lou (cubancigar2000) has it. $2200 is top dollar for a gun like this, especially in todays weak used gun market. Now $2700 is not a bad price IF he throws in 10 flats of trap loads. Realistically, $2000 is a fair price for both you, and the seller, all things considered..... Just my opinion... Dan Thome (Trap2)

    $2200 is tops for a low rib 90-T I would not pay that for a low rib, $2200 is about right for the Adjustable Rib Model.

    And I have owned 3 of them, the low rib shoots too low for me.

    I think you have to look at what some of these have just been listed at here. Some very nice, like new guns, where listed at or close to that $2700. They sold, but at what price, I don't know for sure.

    When you ask, "What is gun worth?" you get what each individual would pay for it, if they where to buy it. Does not mean that this is what anyone would pay for it. Sometimes the right buyer comes along and pays that amount.

    In this instance, I think you have the information you are looking for, as to what would be a good price to pay for it, as a good deal though. Obviously more info would be needed to judge what this gun is really worth. An Americase, custom engraved side plates, along with the adjustable comb, and pad help with value. The porting, and not knowing if any updates have been done would be a negative, IMO.

    Stretch28... As for me, you're welcome! Glad we could help a fellow trap shooter from getting a "not so good" deal. Be patient and another will pop up at a better price..... Dan Thome (Trap2)

    YAC,

    I knew a man who once sold a horse for 5000, and it was worth 4000. When the new guy got it, it was still worth 4000.

    The gun itself, designed and bulit by Kolar, is an excellent design and produced with the highest quality materials. Like Ljutic's, these guns are excellent used buys. I don't think you'll find a better quality gun for less money fhan the 90T.

    90T clearance was more than just a few years, ago... more than a decade ago - if memory serves me right, Jacquas at Vandalia had 90Ts in the late 90s on clearance.

    According to Remington, the guns were built from 1991 and discontinued in 1997... the earliest guns are now 22 years old and the most recent 16+...

    A buddy who got me hooked on the "T" paid retail, way back when, and I think he said he paid @$2700 for his low rib then... I think I recall somewhere the HPAR retailed for @$3500...

    When your bread and butter crowd is buying all the 870 Express they can for $250... and your 1100/1187 semis fetch $500-600... I think it was inevitable that Remington Arms would have difficulty marketing a "Remington" for $3k, regardless of who did the manufacturing - however, their "bust" became out "boon"...

    "Crunch" couldn't have said it better - they're a real value for the money and the quality stacks up against anything made today...

    What did a new in box, BT-99 sell for in 1972? What do they sell for now?

    Take pictures of it and post them on here. Find out if the updates have been done and, how much it was shot.

    I would bet that the prices would change. Fact is, without pictures, and more information, the prices you where given would change. What if it has Bill Mains engraved side plates? What about the embroidered 90-T Americase? Like new condition? What if the $260 in updates are done?

    Looks nice from there!

    Looks like the standard patina purple receiver. Any close-up photo's of the plates, porting? The porting is probably the Seitz style, I imagine. Barrel, choke, measurements?
