View Full Version : Rem 870?

What would be a fair asking price for an older 16ga Remington 870 that shows some wear from use but is still in decent shape?

check out this site and it'll give you an idea of the going rate on them.it seems to be around $500 for a wingmaster model.
that's really one to hang onto though!

I have read that the standard rule of thumb is 1/2 the cost of what the same gun (or similar if no longer sold) sells for brand new. I have found gun show prices to be higher than this for used guns in questionable condition.
That value applies unless it is rare or has special engraving/inlay. 16 gauge is less prevalent than other gauges, so it may price higher.
Wish I still had my old 16 ga Harrington and Richardson. The wood was beautiful.

I have been all over gunsamerica in the last week looking for a 16 ga
and there are some in better condition and some in worse condition.
But the rule on thumb The King gave is right on the $.
That gun is maybe 60% so 60% of a new one is $280.00
A 16ga is not that hard to find so look around and you might find a
better deal but not a remington. I know I've looked.
I'd offer $225.00 and see where it goes.

If that dont work out check out the 870 Express..seen a couple of them over the last year or so and they all seem to run around $225 NIB...not as pretty as the Wingmaster..but its a 870 16 Gauge.
