I’ve been on the hunt for a 20 or 28ga S/S for a while now and found a Merkel 147EL sxs at my LGS. It had beautiful wood, 20ga with an English stock (I typically use prince of Wales) but this shotgun felt incredible.

It was on consignment and the owner/friend told me he wanted too much for it at $6,000 and the owner of the gun isn’t willing to budge. I don’t know the age of the gun and the only flaw was that it has some slight toning on the receiver, which I would think would wipe off easily when treated properly. Not a single scratch on the wood or bluing.

I came home and started searching Merkels and couldn't find much in that model under 7-8k (used). Is $6k too much? I don’t want to be an idiot about spending too much but IMO I’m willing to pay a little more so I can handle & inspect the gun.

As always, your thought & suggestions are appreciated.
