What does "the book" say value is for a 95% BSS 20 gauge Mag with 26" barrels? It has the silver non-selective trigger. The serial number puts it at 1982.

Thanks!!!

Regardless of book value, reality is how much they currently actually sell for.

Today, for the PG version ( i.e., non-Sporter, non-sidelock) is at least $1500-$1600 for a clean BSS in 20ga.

You would be best advised to surf ONLY sold/closed gun auctions like gunbroker, etc, for another like BSS in the same condition as yours, to find out how much John Q.Public's been recently willing to pony up.

FWIW, unsold/unbid "prices" & "opening bids" are NOT values - they are pie-in-the-sky.

Thanks! I wasn't aware I could filter the auction sites for sold only. Great tip. I appreciate it.
