Ned,

Thank you! It was Dad's shotgun. I still like to carry it in the field because it IS so light. I was curious what it was actually worth.

cheers,
Dan

You are quite welcome. Now you know the average retail value. The true value is what a buyer would be winning to pay and what a seller is willing to accept. Of course, the sentimental value can't be calculated.
