    Should be worth --at least $325/$350 and up(depending on the
    wood and condition).

    Blue Book says;

    100%=$425.00 to 60%=$200.00

    add $15.00 for Monte Carlo stock.

    My experience has been to add $50.00 to thier numbers.

    Trade in value at my favorite place is 60% for cash 75 to 80% for a trade in. thats % of retail value. What does gander mountain have on the shelves to compare. Hey if its a good friend and you where thinking of trading in anyway. give him a offer he cant refuse.

    Gander pays 70% of bluebook, no matter what kind of deal you have as far as trade or outright sale (thats company policy @ least). That means they were grading it @ 60% and were going to pay you 70% of that. I doubt a 870 trap would last on the shelf long @ $200. I don't think you'll have any trouble getting $250-$300 off this website for it.

    Probably 250-300 in the very nice shape described would get it sold quickly

    proibably about 300 to 350 for one in excellent shape with good wood on it. I wouldn't let it go much cheaper than 300 unless it shows pretty heavy wear marks. There is usually a difference in book value price and what the market will bear sort of like car dealers. The book value is usually to allow a gun dealer a margin of profit.
