I know a guy who has a Silma over/under for sale. The gun is used and he wants $400 for the gun. I not sure of the model, I have not looked at the gun yet, I only seen it at a glance in the dove field in Sept.. I thought I would get some opinions before I wasted the guy's time going to look at the gun. Opinions please.

Does anybody know anything about Silma over/unders. I do know it's made in Italey, and Gander Mtn. has a couple that is over $800. Is it considerd a good gun?

They are a solid gun and back in the USA after a period where they were hard to find.
The new silmas have a modern design, the olders were classic.
The year that you have sold for about 650.00 back then.
If it is in good shape your price sounds good.

The Silmas I heave seen at Gander look like they were pretty well made as far as the fit and finish go. They looked to be on par with the better grade of the Traditions Sporting guns made by Fausti.

crank bait: If the SLIMA is in good condition, I think that is a fair price. It is a well make ITILIAN gun, it's not a FAUSTI or a RIZZINI, But I am sure it will fit all your shooting needs & will still be shooting when all the TURKISH & RUSSIAN guns have been retired. IMO. I have a EMILO RIZZINI o/u 12 ga 2 3/4 in that I brought back from ITALY in 1979. Than has never given me any problem. It just keeps on going (BANG) when the trigger is pulled.

I got to look at the gun this weekend and guess what. It's not a Silma. The only thing I could find on the gun is on the barrel and it was Sile or Sle Ny,Ny MAR Made in Italy. I could not tale if the i was a i or a scratch. It looked like Sile but may have been Sle. The gun looked and felt pretty good. It had extractors and single trigger but I could not find a barrel selector. It also had 4 chokes with it.

I have been watching this tread for a while, and would like to know the same info as crankbait. Other than the serial #, the only markings on the gun are as follows (SLE NY, NY MAR, Made in Italy). My father-in-law was given this gun when his father died, and he has been asking around for any information about the gun.

thanks,
mm
