    I don't know if I'd pay that much for a Classic Trap. Like a lot of 870 fans, I think the TC is a nicer gun - they have an extended forearm and don't have light contour barrels. And you can buy new Classic Traps but can't buy new TCs any more. I bought a LNIB TC for my son from a poster here for $525 plus shipping about a year ago.

    Just a thought...

    The $550. posted by Hoosier seems in the ballpark. While I have a TB and TC, the newer Classic is a fine trap gun. I have shot one and cannot tell any difference in "feel" or it's ability to smoke targets. One of the few guns that will truly last a lifetime of shooting. I shoot 1oz. loads in my Rems at all yardages and recoil is tame...now my "parking lot" turkey shoot loads are another story...lol.
