I purchased this gun new in 1977 or 1978. All original, includes original box, hang tag and manual. Gun has been very well cared for, 95% condition or better. Some folks tell me it is worth $1,100, others $2,000 (per toolmaker below). The "market" will tell all. Best offer over over next month. Not in a hurry to sell.

David, was just curious what width rib is on the barrel. I have one identical to it, but my rib is a full 3/4" wide. I have heard stories that this extra wide rib was made for the European market for bunker shooters. Don't know if that's right or not, or just a good story. I felt lucky to pick up mine many years ago for $1000 and I wouldn't part with it for less that $1500. Beautiful gun with awesome wood. 30" fixed chokes, IM and F. Mike* (MH*)

Most of the trap guns I have seen usually have the 1/4" wide and some are 3/8" wide ribs. I think my gun was made around 1979.

I believe this rib is 3/8". I added an image of the back side of the hang tag with the specs.

Dave, If you go to guns international site they have about 10 for sale. The condition of the gun you have are showing $2k plus on that site.

Added, I used to shoot trap with the supervisor on that drilling rig that save those Chilean miners, and about 4-5 years ago I remember him telling me he bought a Win. 101 pigeon grade and paid more then $2,000

Toolmaker, thank you for the advice. I have added better pictures to the post, scroll down to the bottom.

Hate to sell, but I do not shoot it and multiple kids in the sport = shift in priorities (and preference for higher shooting guns).

Our local gunsmith just sold one exactly like it, close to the same condition for $1150. I thought it was worth more, but could not afford another trap gun.

The dark wood on these guns makes them very good looking.

Why do people who aren't buying always pipe in with the its worth this huge amount. It's like since they can't afford it or aren't buying they wanta fill the head of the person that is selling with some pie in the sky idea there stuff is worth something that its not. Just don't get it. If your not dealing keep your "trap" shut.

Correct serial number box, and tags does add value. In some cases it is significant. Plus it is almost new condition. Nice gun.

Win 101's are great shotguns. I shot a pigeon grade XTR model for years.
The XTR Pigeon models have full engraving on the bottom of the receivers plus
choke tubes. I now shoot a diamond grade combo.
You should be able to get a solid $1500-$1600 even know Guns America is listing them at $2000 is any one bidding on them?

Just my opinion.
