Default Considering selling my 870.

It's just a standard express model with a 28' barrel and a 3' chamber. A few nicks on the stock, but not very deep or very big. Overall it's in good condition.

How much would I be looking at if I decided to sell it? I figure it's time for something new, but my ideal situation would be to pay for something new with the dough I get for my 870.

So how much am I looking at guys?

Yeah, it's not in bad shape at all aside from the nicks on the stock.

Action is smooth, bore is clean and shiny.

I see them on sale for $290-330 new plus tax and fees, but many seem to sell fairly quick for $300 plus in used condition.

You'll be lucky if you get $300, as these are on sale every now and then.

A used standard model Express like you have is around $320 new where you are and much less in the United States. Add the fact that the $30 rebate started on August 1st for this model and your used one is worth about $250 if the buyer is smart. If he is not then get what you can get.

$250, maybe a bit more. You have to incentivize the buyer, because these are commonly available new for not much more.

Well I have everything with it. Choke wrench, magazine limiter, owners manual, and an extra recoil pad.

The buyer is going to use that as a big incentive for those extra's if the price is right...

And I agree with a few here, that it'll be closer on the low end ($250) since now I see a flood of these guns on the market (and common)

At one time, I was going to give mine away so I could buy a newer version. Decided to keep it and just get a hogue stock. Definitely a work horse.
