    Can anyone tell me the value of a Winchester 1897 Black Diamond trap gun? The serial number dates it to 1905, the cond. is between 85-90% wood & metal shows light handling. A gentleman wanted to buy it & I wanted to know value before I decide wheather to sell.
    Thanks in advance

    There are many differences in the black diamond guns depending on when they were made. Some had the top of the barrel stippled, some had solid ribs, and I suppose some had vent ribs. There may have been some wood differences and stock style differences (pistol grip vs. straight). You haven't given enough information to make a value determination.

    It has a straight stock, with the black diamond inlaid. It has on the bolt "TRAP GUN" . Action is in ex. cond. & tight. It has the light checkering on the forarm.There is no vent rib at all on this gun. The serial number is from 1905.Also it has a 30 inch barrel. If you need anything else let me know

    It should also have checkering on the buttstock and check the top of the barrel for stippling. Good condition is about $1200.

    Didn't the grade "Black Diamond" refer to the grade of wood on 97s and model 12s?? I'm fairly sure it did. Hap
