I have read a bit about these, and i know they were not the best made shotguns, but about what would the value be right now including covid tax. No case or accessories.

There were varying quality levels.
The Beretta ones are superior.
They all have the issue of long firing channel in the breech, which is easily blocked by fouling.
I think the price estimate is low for a Beretta example.
Not far off for the unbranded, poorly finished ones.
I bought several of the cheaper ones from Cape Outfitters, and get inquiries if I still have them. Maybe a kind of cult following among Black powder shooters.

There is one on there now for $870, no thanks. Hopefully one pops up for cheaper with accessories. Even if they dont shoot well, its still one of those conversation pieces.

The YouTube channel TGS Outdoors just did a review of one a few weeks ago.
Watching it now.
