Selling this Sturm Ruger Red Label Sporting Clays 12 gauge for the wife
of a friend who passed away recently. Don't know much about this gun,
except that he probably only shot a couple boxes through it. Asking $1000.00 shipped. Comes with SK,SK,IC,M and Full chokes. SOLD

Just an opinion, that's a little heavy.

Good guns, but the safety going back on every time makes for a PITA shooting targets.

If I had one I would kill ducks with it.

Once again, someone trashing someone else's gun for sale. What's wrong with some of you on this forum??? If you aren't interested, keep your comments to yourself and move on. Poor forums etiquette.

I believe all Sporting models came in 30" barrels. This one looks like 30.

I bid on a couple on Gunbroker that went above my self-imposed maximum bid. Most went for around or just under $1k. One went for $1k total including shipping, and the buyer put it back up for sale three weeks later and got $1200 for it. It had tiger striped wood on it, and the seller used the exact same photos as in the previous ad.

Sorry, but like I said--I don't know much about these. It does have a 30" barrel, and I'll go over to her house tomorrow and see what chokes are in
the safe. If $1,000 is on the high side, what is a fair price for one that
has only been out of the safe two or three times?

I sold mine four years ago, LNIB with a hard case I bought for it for $900. One round of sporting clays through it. Gun prices have gone up some but you should be able to get $850-900 for it fairly quickly. Depends how quickly you want to sell it. Hope this helps.

What Hawk said. Not trashing, just observing. I like them for a hunting gun.

I am sure a pristine one (98%) would get the 1K from someone.

I forget to put the safety off at every shot. Just a minor issue.

I had a Beretta that was simple to convert, just one screw to remove the operating bar. Someother guns are harder to convert.

The chokes in the gun are skeet and skeet. IC, Mod and full are also included.
Found the owners manual but not the box.

Special thanks to AJ100 (Tom Vogt) who helped me with this Ruger listing.
Tom is alive and well--just no longer able to post on TS.com. He sends
his regards to all his old frinds on this site.

The older sporting model number was 4125, I think. The current one is 4166. Which model number is on this gun?

The gun is well worth $1000. I paid that much for mine new 9 years ago. I think they are close to 2K new now.
