I have a 12 gauge 390 Diamond Beretta that I am looking to sell but need to know what it may be worth. The prices i can find are all over the place so just looking for a little expert advice. It is a sporting mode with small upgrades from angle port. Any info can help.

The diamond version is just a basic 390 with extra “machine” engraving and “gold colored” bits...And once the gun has been shot, the value takes a hit. Other factors should have a greater impact on the value...things like barrel length, sporting rib, and porting (factory or aftermarket). Some love porting...but many more do not. Does the gun come with a full set of chokes...factory or aftermarket...and are the chokes matched to the bore ID? Does the wood have any dents, chips, or cracks...these will also affect value.

I would think that a 390 diamond In good to great shape should fetch $875 to $950.

I agree pretty much with cleboje. Barrel length and overall condition are the main determinants of the value of that gun.

I couldn't get the pics to open, so I couldn't take a close look at the pics. The barrel looks like 28". Can you confirm? Really, you need some better pics in my opinion.

Once a gun goes out the door by the original owner it becomes pre-owned no matter if it's been shot or not. It's called depreciation. 50% of full retail is a place to start. The used gun market is very soft right now. When I see terms LNIB, unfired or rare I know the price is going to be inflated.
