It's new- never shot. No scratches, dings, or nicks. 28" barrel. Is this a good gun? Good for skeet?

Thanks,
Sam

If it shoots where you look it will work, is it a trap or skeet configuration? Is it a stainless gun? Silver receiver?

They are good shooters, but a pic would sure help in determining value if you could get one.

If it is one of the above and silver, I will stick my neck out and say a minimum of $1000.

Cased?

Same gun as the old Winchester 101s. Usually better wood. But alas, not a Winchester. Worth about 25% less than the comparable Winchester. Fine guns, very good shooters, obsolete as the Arc! I have a very nice Pigeon 101 I probably wouldn't trade for 2 Nikkos though!

:) Don't even consider selling that Nikko for under $1000.
I have a closet full of shotguns, but I love my :wink: Nikko :wink: trap gun best. (just my $0.02)

I have shot mine in clays competion for about 5 years now and I don't think anyboby could get it away from me, I love it!! That said, the only problem you might have is if you are a big "choke fanatic". The barrels are to thin to have chokes installed(according to Briley) so if you don't like the factory choking you will have to get the barrels opened up to whatever you need and shoot the hell out of it. I had mine opened to IC and Mod from full and Mod. It has never failed me,, I have failed me , but not my Nikko. I would definitely put it in the 1k$+ range. I would love to find a nice 20ga to go with my 12.........Jack

Used guns are used guns, they are worth whatever you can get for them. Two mistakes you can make in selling used equipment, guns or anything else for that matter, you can price it too cheap and leave a goodly amount of money laying on the table, or you can price it too high and no one will even give you a passing thought. The trick is to price it somewhere in between where both parties are happy. Nikkos may in fact be better guns than the 101 Winchester, but Winchester has name recognition. They will bring more money! I think the $1250 is more closely related to reality than the $1600 price is, but many gun dealers aren't so much interested in selling guns as they are in fleecing fools. :cry: But you won't get it if you don't ask! :wink:
