I have located a couple of post war standard field grade model 42s with solid ribs. One has a 26" barrel and the other a 28". Both guns are choked and marked MOD and in 85% or better original condition unaltered. Which one would be more desirable? They are both priced about $1k higher than what the BB suggests. What is a fair price on these guns? Any help is appreciated. Gunboy

Rob, today's market will dictate in the high two thousand range, to the low three thousands. That's about what I can gather from observations in the last year or so. Don't know what the 26 inch barrel vs. the 28 inch would mean as far as desirability goes. Personally, I'd prefer the 26 as far as shooting goes. Now as far as a reasonable price goes, 85% condition could be your friend in this situation.

Agree pretty much with all. Would rather have a 28" postwar field. Mostly personal preference.
