Is this a good deal? - Shotgun

<font face="Times New Roman">
<font color=green>I'm pretty sure it is, but want to make sure. Remington 1100 Skeet 12 ga shotgun for $200. About 20 years old, in mint condition, it's hardly been used. Comes with a soft case (bfd). The price included shipping. Yay? Nay? Oh yeah, it's got the checkered stock with the designs in the receiver too. It apparantly looks like this -

Re: Is this a good deal? - Shotgun

As far as value goes, its really dependent upon what you will use it for. That particular model has a good reputation and it appears from the pic that there are no scars along the ejector/bolt area or pits/wear in the finish which would indicate heavy use. This bbl might not have a choke system and that would be something you would want to ask about...if no choke system, likely the bbl is improved cylinder for skeet, but you could use it for dove and quail just fine. I see these used all the time for about 250. They have to be kept clean cause their actions gunk fast and they are also a bit choosy on lubes when you use em in icy weather...They also dont particularly feed low brass Winchesters too well. Keep in mind its likely chambered for 2 3/4 which would pretty much limit you to small game, unlike the 3 and 3.5 inch rounds which are great for waterfowl and turkey. The 870 pump in 3 inch is a better all around shotgun but thats just my 2 cents.

Re: Is this a good deal? - Shotgun

<font face="Times New Roman">
<font color=green>OK, I got 2 "go for it"s and 1 "not that good of a deal". I guess I should have specified what I'll use it for, and that is purely trap and skeet. I don't hunt, and in all honesty I probably never will. Just not my thing. So, sounds like it's a decent deal at least for a skeet gun. Oh, the pics I posted are not of the actual gun, but the seller said it looks exactly like the one in the pics, it is in mint condition and has hardly been used. The seller still hasn't gotten back to me, so we'll see. I'll let everyone know how it goes.

Re: Is this a good deal? - Shotgun

Dont get me wrong, its an excellent buy (and choice) for sporting clays and skeet. You wont find one cheaper if its really in excellent condition. I use a Browning O/U and an A-5 for clays, but use 3" and 3.5" (ranging from Winchester, to Remi, to a Mossberg turkey gun) out in the field. Just think there are better shotguns than the 1100 for the field when you have to consider the elements like dirt/ice and the limits a 2 3/4 chamber will impose.

Birddog, What do you think a Browning "hi power" 9mm perfect condition is worth?

Re: Is this a good deal? - Shotgun

Perfect condition is relative to some people but I use the following: Its been kept clean and properly lubed, few rounds fired (especially reloads by unskilled reloaders, since a 9mm is a difficult round to keep pressures in check), an unpitted or /corrosion contaminated bore and bbl, excellent finish and no evidence of blue wear thru....definitely no rust...maybe minor holster and trigger wear. Bout $400. Police service use grade, bout $300. Somewhere in between those two values for average. These used to command a higher resale value, but with the Glock and high cap craze, they seemed to lose a bit on resale, then of course Clinton pushed for 10 round clips, and everyone got into the compact craze, which seemed to further diminish resale of full size pistols a bit. Kinda coming back into equilibrium, though. The HP is a great weapon and has an excellent reputation for feeding a variety of rounds. I use Glock autos and Rugers, but used to have a Browning 9....still have the little Buckmark 22 and like the slim profile of both.

Re: Is this a good deal? - Shotgun

Thanks bird dog I figured in this conditon they would sell for around $400, so when he said $300, I said SURE!
On it's condition it is as close to "New In Box" as could be, No holster or trigger wear, it has probably had less than 100 rounds through it. I have been playing with it since I got it, it tears down very easy, I cleaned it (of course) and it was spotless! I cant what for the weekend to go blinking [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Thanks for the input! You told me what I wanted to hear [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
