What's the value of this shotgun???

I'm posting this for a friend of mine. It is a Ruger O/U 12 gauge with fixed chokes and 3" chamber. It has a nice carrying case and is unfired. Also has "30th Anniversary Ducks Unlimited" on the side of the gun. If anyone knows the value, I'd appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

The brand new Red Labels that just came out are selling for $1000 at my local gun store. Not sure how much the special edition adds to the value.

The case is worth a couple of hundred.

The "Ducks Unlimited" doesn't usually make it worth more. Sometimes it actually makes it harder to sell. But I would think you would be able to get in the $1K range with the case, give or take a little.

gunshop will give you $500 tops most likely. for the right buyer that is a $1k gun. a nice price for a friend is $800. those are very nice guns.

That gun is worth more than $1000.

The case adds value and the engraving adds value. I believe that Ruger engraving was done by hand.

I would guess that it would be valued in the $1600 to $1900 range.

Whether anyone on this site would pay that, I don't know. Most guys here want Kreighoffs for Savage prices and use the logic that they both go bang so they must be worth the same.

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.

theres a 50th anniversary that sold for $1195. there are another 20 that were listed anywhere from 1200 to 2400 and were not bid on. my opinion I say it would top out at 1100
