--"old Marlin 12 gauge pump shotgun"
-- Remington 12c (probably, description sketchy) in .22 WRF
-- Police Positive also in .22WRF.
I see them tomorrow and meanwhile rely on, "Oh yeah, its real nice. Really great for its age. I shot it and it works great. But it hasn't been shot much. I been checking around and the guys tell me the Colt is worth about $900 by itself and the ...".
I could keep the 870 as a spare birder. The others would be traders, though it's always nice to have another Colt kicking around the collection. Probably nothing will come of this. I see about $750 worth of value, and I think he figures about twice that. What can you expect from a guy who spent his life telling people 20-pay life was a good deal?
