Hello, I'm new here. I have a neighbor that has a side by side 20ga she is wanting to sell. I actually caught her before she went to the pawn shop with it. Here's what I know about the gun.
20ga. double barrel 28' barrels
Gorosabel made in Spain
No. 102 845
Imported by Tex Products, Houston, TX

Lots and lots of tooling

Any idea what it might be worth?

Thanks
James in Texas

Likely one of the inexpensive box lock side by sides. If so, and in VG to EX condition, I'd expect to see it go at auction for between $300 and $500.

If it's one of the side locks, then value could be anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand dollars. Would need pictures to narrow that down.

I guess by "lots and lots of tooling" you mean engraving. Anyway, I had a Gorosabel whose receiver was fully engraved in a coin finish. It had some other nice features such as single selective trigger, ejectors, beavertail forend, pistol grip and a flawless finish on metal and wood. I tried to trade it to two different well-known gun dealers. Both of them politely, but firmly, told me they had no use for it. In essence, it had no value to them. I was eventually able to sell it for $700 to a guy who had zero interest in it as a shotgun. He wanted it as the basis for a small-bore double rifle. Not sure any of that helps you, since, without photos, there's little we can do to determine if we're talking about the same model of gun.

I still haven’t figured out how to add photos. I can email them to you.

I bought a 12 gauge a few years ago for $300. It is one smooth bore and one rifled bore. That is about the ballpark - as stated above - price for this brand.
