How much would the gunsmith give you for it? I'll bet he'll say that 16ga's aren't in high demand and give you what Bushrod said, or less.

If it were a 20 or 12, it would be worth 400. I just bought an older 1100 in 12 for $420, at a retail store, so how much did they pay for it?

And I'm casually looking for a 20 in that same price range, unsuccessfully I might add.

There is no shortage of 16 bore Model 1100s. more guns than buyers. The pawn shops are full of them, plenty at gun shows, marked $400, but not moving at that price..Bushrod

Hello riptide: While true the 16ga. has a "limited market", (doesn't appeal to everyone). your gun isn't worthless.

Your choice of words, "great condition" can mean so many different things to people. But if you said, the gun grades out at 95% or 85% most of us know what that means.

I can tell you this not all 16ga. 1100s came with a vent rib, some were plain. A 1971 gun in 95% condition will bring more than a 1991 gun in the same condition.

The wood on a 1971 is better than what remington used in the 1990s as an example.

the 16ga. has not been in continuous production, from 1963 to now, simply because the demand is low. the 12 and 20ga. basically have been.

Yes your gun could sell for a low of $200, and it might go as high as $400. How do you plan on selling it. Word of mouth, local newspaper, one of the internet auction sites with good quality digital pictures? don't forget the "cost" of advertising!!

Myself I would list it on Gunbroker or AuctionArms, with a starting bid of about $225, and a postage cost of $25-$30. You will soon see how much interest your gun draws!!

16ga, Vent rib, Mod. choke it's a great bird gun, from dove, and quail to pheasants! But 16ga. guns any make beside the Browning A 5 Sweet 16, can be real hard to sell!

Regards Dave

i don't usually don't reply on the how much questions. but this info is ridiculous. the 1100 16ga is the hardest to find with a vent rib. they stopped making the old ones in 1981. there are a lot of people searching for vent 16's to feel their 1100 collection. i would give you 400 for it sight unseen. the thing is the barrel in good to excellent condition will bring $225-300. i have sold several. the 12ga is the cheapest 300-400 tops. then 20's 400-600. then 410's 28's and 16's in excellent to nib shape between 700-900. yes a great 1100 16 will bring as much or close to the small gauges. i have sold several at the shows and they are in high demand. a decent plain barrel gun will bring more than a mint vent 12ga. if you want to sell i know a guy looking for one. shoot me a pm.

......

this is true.. just recently at a small town gun show. VR 1100 16ga sold for 800 dollars.
made me feel good... cause my 1100 16 is in alott better shape than the one that sold.

Why in the world would any one want a 16 gauge gun built on a 12 gauge frame?

That's great! But you should try a gun with a frame sized to the gauge. They handle different.

"Saw one sell at a gun show" is a statement to be taken with a dose of suspicion. I have gone to 1000 table gun shows for three days straight and not seen one gun sell. You would definitely have to be in the right place at the right time to witness an actual sale. Then you would have to be impolitely inquisitive to find out what price it sold for.

I've shot granddads old 16 since 1984 .

I've bought other shotguns.. used them ..
and went right back to the old 1100.
i don't have a specific reason .. cept i like the 1100 in 16ga.
thats all.
