I have a chance to buy one for $1400, I would put it at about 95% condition with just a few handleing marks. The wood on this gun is very nice. Anyone have any info on them? are they well made? Is that a good Price? Thanks! 8)

Depends a lot on what grade the gun is and whether the updates have been done.The 3200 is an excellent gun,maybe the best mass produced O/U (IMHO) to actually be built in the US.I own two at this time and wouldn't have a problem owning a few more.Look on Gunsamerica or Gunbroker to get an idea as to what one is worth.

As Vetteman said, we need more info as to the model, barrel length, and whether it has been updated.

Remington's Model 32 was arguably the best U.S. made, mass produced O/U. The 3200 was a good gun, but nowhere close to the 32.


IMHO, of course. :mrgreen:

It is a "Special Trap" with 32'' barrels and a M/C stock. It does not have any mods. :D

Blue Book says $1,300 in 98% and $1,200 in 95% condition. However, I would consider the cost of updating the gun before buying it. BB also says it is similar to the 3200 Trap but with fancy wood and on that gun, 30" barrels are more desirable than the 32".

I recently had a chance to buy one also. At that price also. A trap version with IM and Full bbl's.. Have been looking off and on for a few years now. The shop was selling it consignment for a guy and wasn't budging on the price. None of the upgrades were done to the gun. The guy who owns it only know what the book says, has no idea about the upgrades or trapshooting. It's just a gun in his gun vault.

To me it is foolish to spend $1400 and 6 or $700 in the upgrades when you could go buy a brand new Browning XT Trap Gun what is new, and made better. If you are buying it for targets and want to shoot the heck out of it it will have to be upgraded. If you want to buy it to say you have a 3200 and shoot 200 rounds a year, spend the $1400. What did it cost brand new? Is it a classic?

You can buy a 3200 for $1100-1400 with upgrades done ! look at GunsAmerica or Gumbrokers.com and I believe a browning XT is a nice gun but cant compare to a 3200 (made in America quality ... ask me how I know ...have owned and shot 3200's for 30years and never once had a problem .. still own a matched pair "1 of 1000" trap and sk bought new as well as a live bird and premier .. wouldnt think of selling any of them ...just my .02

I'm sure that eihter the OP or someone else owns that gun by now.

I wish there were some automatic lock so that noobs can't dredge up old threads because they don't know what they are doing...

I have found a field grade 3200 in very good shape. 28 inch barrels factory marked M/F but opened up to IC/M with no upgrades. What do you think is a fair price? They want $1100.00. Thanks ahead of time.

Why would you spend $1,100 on a Rem 3200 without the $700.00 in factory upgrades?? Laib's is the only source for the factory upgrades.

Even WITH upgrades it's not worth $1100. Most field grades change hands in the $600-$800 range WITH updates.

Anyone buying a 3200 or any other gun for that matter would appreciate the opinions and or advice regardless of when it was offered!

That was a pretty small "mass" of Remington Model 32s produced during their barely 11 years!!!

IMHO the Model 3200 was a clay target breaking machine of first order!! I shot one Model 3200 tube set for all my NSSA skeet for the last 11 years I shot NSSA skeet. Sure the Model 3200 has some issues in high volume use, but so do the K-guns and P-guns despite what some pundits say. The Model 3200 was made in the U.S. and did a super job on the skeet and trap fields at a fraction of the cost of the P- and K-guns. A couple of years ago I dropped my old 3200 off at Laib's and asked them to fix anything that needed fixing (not cosmetic). Tab was just over $400.

Researcher,
Last year I sent my unmodified 1973 3200 for all the mods and Pat Laib only did a few that were needed and the bill was a fraction of what was expected. When I asked why "this and that" wasn't done, he said it didn't need them. If I insisted I am sure he would have taken my money, but it was refreshing that he did what he thought was necessary and not beyond. Gil

There seems to be a wealth of knowledge on the 3200 here. I have a special trap 3200. I shoot it for singles, caps and doubles. My question is if anyone knows of a good person who could put a new stock on it. One with an adjustable comb and butt plate so that this thing would fit me perfectly. The length of pull is too short and it just doesnt fit quite right with factory stock. I live in VA so someone close to there would be preferable.

Mr. Gil.
If you do not mind, just how much did your upgrades cost and what was done, not done and why? I’ve got my eye on a couple of 3200’s but they do not have the updates. What should one be looking for on such a gun? I have read about cracks in the forearm, wallowed out firing pin holes, mushed down firing pins, what else?
