    I'm selling an 870 Express to get together some cash for other toys. I bought it used from some guy that had only fired it a couple of times. I myself have only fired it a few times as I bought it as a backup/home defense gun. It's got a honey colored stock and fore-grip and you would be hard pressed to find any signs of wear. It's an express magnum so it shoots 3" shells. I know this is probably the wrong board to place an ad for a shotgun but I know some of you do other things besides driving tacks. It was probably made around 2000. Whatta ya think it's worth? I think the gun retailed around $300 or so. Any advice on how much to advertise it for in the local paper for a quick and fair sale would help.

    Thats awfully low for an used wingmaster. Either its not in the geatest condition, or you got a great deal.

    You can find them new w/ synthetic stocks around here for 200-230 when on sale at Academy, Simmons, True Value, or Basspro. The wood is probably a few more dollars new.

    You should be able to get 175 or so for it.

    Good Luck,
