    I have inherited a Winchester model SX-1 Pigeon grade trap with monte carlo stock shotgun. It appears new and unfired. It has extensive engraving on the receiver. It's serial #11 of 100. Does anyone have an idea of the value? What could I sell it for? (yes, I plan to sell it)What year it was made? There is no box with it. Thanks for any help you can offer. Send me your e-mail address and I'll send you photos. Please contact me at my e-mail.

    SuperXJeff and Chuckles should respond soon. Very nice gun and they command a very good price compared to other Super X-1 guns. Pictures would help. Bill Malcolm

    I had heard the number was 48....but 47 or 48...that's about the range of Pigeons made. I also have one (and can never remember the serial number without going down to the safe but its in the 30s)

    To the OP, are you sure its a factory Pigeon engraving job? How do you know?

    If I may ask, what exactly does the serial number looke like, or better yet can you post a picture so we can see the engraving pattern.

    Personally, even if fired but in 99% condition and appearing to be unfired as you say, I believe that $2,000 may be a bit on the low side while $5K strikes me as way on the high side. But this gun is attractive for collector value (the engraving was nothing to ohh and ahh about...but its factory and therein is the value) and that's a bit hard to judge. If I had to call it, and that's hard with a gun of which there are so few examples, I would give it a range of $2,500 - $3,500.

    If you are interested in selling it, please let me know as I would be interested in making an offer for a factory Pigeon.

    Regards,

    Stephen

    You have a very desirable gun. Don't be in a hurry to sell it (you will initially get many LOW-BALL OFFERS)...put it in Gunbroker with a high reserve and see what people are willing to pay....Be patient, don't get ripped-off!

    Without the box, even though they were cheesey, I would estimate $2,800. If it is fired, no paperwork, no factory letter, the price will go lower. With the box, paperwork, factory letter, unfired, I would estimate $3,800 - $4,100 if you are patient.

    I don't recall the factory pigeons having a number stating 11 of 100. (The factory did intend to make 100) I do know there is a custom Super Pigeon gun on Gunbroker where there is engraving that says "1 of 1". However, the owner has never produced a factory letter for me indicating that it is a factory gun. We are all familiar with this gun...

    What is the prefix on your serial number? It should be SXP...

    The guys at Blue Book are in the broccoli patch when it comes to prices on SX-1s. Especially on pigeon and Super Pigeons.

    With fewer numbers produced, the Pigeon is slightly more rare than the Super Pigeon.

    The only real marker of what a gun is worth is what people are willing to pay for it. Put it up for auction and see what the market dictates. Be aware that some people truly love X-1s and are willing to pay premium prices. Others, just want to LOW-BALL you and resell it at a profit.
