I am very curious about the opinion of you shooters on the true value of a Remington Model 90T single shot Trap gun. I try to research as much as I can before I make a purchase. I see that Kolar in Wisconsin made the gun. I see Doug Braker was and still is the 90T Guru. I see that as of today the absolute least expensive KOLAR you can buy starts at darn near $10,000.00! My point of confusion comes from past threads I have read here stating that 90T's are only worth around $1,000.00 to $1,500.00 when I see them sell for $3,000.00 PLUS on GB, GA, Cabelas and more. Help me out here. How can a company that sells their guns for $10,000.00 plus today have made a gun worth only $1,000.00 today that sold for OVER $4,500.00 in 1997. I have a chance to buy a high rib with all the doc's and toys for $3,200.00 and wonder if I should jump on it. Never fired! Help me out here! Let me know! JIM

The 90T was built for Remington by Kolar. The stock is attached to the metal like an 1100. This was viewed as a negative by many.

Realistic prices are from 1600 to 2200 for standards, more for HPAR model.

The new cost when they were introduced was around 2500. I have a friend that had one of the first ones, and he is still shooting it. he wore it out twice, and had it redone. (guy shoots a lot of targets.)

Heavy gun, choked for smoke. I don't use4 my Beretta any more.

Some of the plain jane first ones are seliing at $1500. But usually those are modified. The ones with the AR are in demand and the later guns will be problem free shooters for some time. A new one that whistles when yo pull the trigger is a 3 grand item for sure. You will not regret the move. If you do not buy it, send me the info would you? Thanks. Jack

3200.00 for a NIB is a good price.These guns are built like a tank and are soft shooters.I would not shoot anything else for trap.

I bought a 90T (low rib, fixed choke, adjustable comb) in '96 and I've been shooting it ever since. I paid $2100 for it, barely used. It was right next to a new one for $2700. The only difference was a small chip in the pistol grip on the used one. For $600 I could live with a small chip. I had it ported and the forcing cone lengthened. I had this done by MagnaPort and there work is top notch.

Very well made. Strong, simple design. The very early production models had a problem with the lock up but that problem was repaired. They are heavy but well balanced for trap. I think when they choked these super-duper extra tight full. When your on at the 16 you leave nice little black clouds where the birds were. When your off you look, well, bad. Great yardage gun. As far as reliability I have had no trouble at all. I shoot with two others that have them and they have had no toubles either.

Remington discontinued these in the late 90's. They didn't have the sales volume Remington wanted. When they did this everyone clearanced them out, I've seen them as low as $1500 at that time. Depending on condition HM is in the ball park.

I have 2100 in mine, and it was very new when I got it. It had been a backup that was never used by the seller.

It shoots a little better every month. My only gripe is the stock loosens up after about 6 weeks or so. Takes 3 & 1/2 minutes to correct.
