    I'm looking to see what might be the value of my model Winchester model 50. It's a 12 ga. and the receiver is in excellent shape, 98%. It has a monte carlo stock with a new recoil pad. The wood is in nice shape but although it's close the stock doesn't quite match the forend since I bought it recently. The barrel is a factory 30" full choke with a round post original rib. I sent it to Stu Wright and had the barrel fitted and he did that then went over the gun and put a couple new springs in it. The barrel finish isn't as nice as the receiver but it's in good shape with a mint bore. Any ideas? Thanks, Mike.

    A solid $700..and very possibly more.. The barrel alone is worth a good $350.. the monte carlo stock.. $150/$200 and receiver complete and gone thru.. $200/$300 Hope this helps..

    Not unusual that the receiver is highly polished. It is typical of the model 50.

    Value range $450-550. currently, unless it's at Cabella's, then it would be $800+.

    Barry Roach is right on

    PS- as to where to find this stuff cheap-- you need to just look and be patient- its not like you can pick up the phone and call "1-800 cheap gun parts when I want them so I can prove the value of the gun I own"

    Hi Gene, I think you are assuming an awful lot. I'm not trying to prove the value of the gun I own. That's why I asked for some opinions from people who might know. I've always received good insight from some very friendly people. I'm not sure of the intent of your response as you never really answered my question as the others did. If you do know what it might be worth I would appreciate your input. Thanks, Mike.

    Mike P---My comment wasnt meant for you- sorry if I didnt specify- I just wanted to leave it an open remark

    I think Barry Roach is right on but then you always get the highball comments from people that own them

    Mike: Gene would estimate the value of a 2009 Mercedes at approximately $75. That being said; I just sold an extremely nice 97%+ Model 50 trap with a Monte Carlo stock for $900. I have its twin in my gun cabinet, with the original Winchester recoil pad, original wood and would need at least that or more to part with it. Believe me the Model 50 is a very nice gun and I feel will someday increase dramatically in value. Ed

    LOL- seems like Mike would estimate things lower than I do--- I really wasnt talking about him

    I think lots of times there might be some confusion about guns and collectors value

    This gun sounds pieced together- I think Barry is right on- as far as value goes

    Something is worth what you can get for it.. As a parts gun.. I can easily get $700..or more.. And.. I have not been able to buy one with an original vent rib for under $700 in years.. And.. if Stu has gone thru it..It's RIGHT... I easily see $700.. All machined tool steel.. I like it better than a SuperX-1..

    I have 1100s, a Beretta A-303 and several 50s and one 59 Winchester. My 50 is the softest shooting gun I've shot trap with!

    Before I'd take 700 for this one, it goes to the ash pile with me. Hap

    Hap, there's a whole lot of difference between a mismatched gun and that beauty of yours. I have a 20 ga. Mod. 50 and a 12ga. Mod.59. Both just field guns but I have always enjoyed shooting them.

    Hap: Very nice. My gun is a twin to that one. I had Phil Crenwelge convert the trigger to a release so I can shoot it occasionally. Why Winchester quit making them is beyond me. Ed

    I'd agree shot a model 50 for 30 yrs never a problem, and a definate soft shooter. Shoot a 390 32" feels similar to me but for nostalgia I'd love to have a model 50 trap! Joe D

    Too many hands-on operations and expensive materials. Too expensive to compete.

    Anyone have a nice 50 trap for sale? I'd like to have one.
