I should have kept that gun!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK...we have all done it.. We got rid of a gun we should have kept..Me...it was a Win Model 1400 LH semiautomatic 12 gauge.. Gee I could have used that now for fox...It did not have the Winchoke system just a plain ole Modified tube.. But there be so many fox pelts hanging on the shed now had I kept that one... LOL
They are not worth much now..Proably not even $200.00.. I did replace it with another Model 1400 with Winchoke but that one is a RH...Thats why it was fast...LH safety left hand ejection.. I could switch the safety on the RH to LH and it would probably be near the same as the old gun I should have kept!!!!!
Is there still a gun that you wished you just left it where it was sitting? This is the only gun I got rid of that I do look back now!!!

Re: I should have kept that gun!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a Remington 870 wingmaster that had the most gorgeous wood you ever laid eyes on. It was just a production gun, but for some reason Remington graced it with near exhibition wood. I bought it years ago at the old Coopers sporting goods in Mansfield, and can still see the old man there stand back and whoooo! when I picked it up out of the box. I had it for a long time, and in a stupid fit I traded it on something else. I have always regretted it, but I hope whoever has it now enjoys it like I did .

Only one I can think of that I would like back was a Remington 700 chambered in 7STW with a detachable magazine. I sold it to a guy that I work with now who still has it, but isn't interested in parting with it.

I think just about every gun that I have ever had and sold are ones that I should have kept.

Re: I should have kept that gun!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Years ago my grandfather gave me a Winchester Model 60 .22cal single shot rifle. He didn't think it was worth anything when he gave it to me and neither did I. Eventually I decided to sand the gun down, JB weld some scope bases to the reciever and paint the gun, scope and rings/bases in a camo pattern. At the time I used it to shoot small critters with .22 CB's at close range. About 5-6yrs ago a co-worker had the blue book for guns. I took a glance at the value for that little rifle. The rifle was manufactured around 1936 and only a limited number were produced. In the condition it was in prior to my work the value was at $400. I cringe a little every time I look at it. Heck I hardly even shoot it anymore but it isn't worth selling now!

I can think of 2-a Marlin 1894 .25-20, that was a fun gun to shoot, and a Remington 788 in .222-I shot an honest .5" 5 shot group with that rifle.

I had a Re. 760 in /06 that I decided I didn't want. Now I look at prices and keep kicking myself.

rflktrman - I am on the other end ... my dad has a 760/30-06 with a cusom stock/cheek rest that I sometimes use and hope to some day own (even willing to it from him when he is ready to part with it). I have a 7600 of my own, but have always liked his 760 better

Nope. I donít know what you're talking about Buck. I've bought lots of guns but never sold even one. I guess I'm afraid of the regret that you're feeling.
