Beretta S 55 O/U

Purchased this shotgun in the late 60's. It is a sweet little 20 guage chambered for 3" rounds in modified and full chokes.Weight of the firearm is roughly 6 pounds.It has a ventilated rib. The gun is in very good condition with a few very minor imperfections on the lower forend and some minor blueing wear on the top of the barrels at the reciever otherwise the gun is in great condition. Potentially looking to sell or trade this firearm but have no idea what the relative worth of it is and finding information on the internet on this firearm has been difficult. Does anyone out there have the expertise to offer a reasonable ballpark $$ value on this firearm? If so that would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Beretta S 55 O/U

From what you described it sounds like a 70-80% gun?????
if that's the case you could possibly get 300 - 400 for gun

Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog!
If it's locked up and put away - Your NOT safe!

Re: Beretta S 55 O/U

One of the best things to do is look on Gunbroker or another auction site. You can see what people are asking, but better yet, what people are willing to pay/bid on the gun. Good luck

We all make choices, some good, some bad, can you live up to yours?

Re: Beretta S 55 O/U

I almost bought one in a gun store a couple of years ago for $550, only it was a 12 gauge. It's from the 60's. 20 gauges always bring a little more. I can find more out later.

Re: Beretta S 55 O/U

I was on Gunbroker but couldn't find it in a 20 guage. The markings stamped on the barrel is P.Beretta, Gardone V.T. Bresica. The wood is a gloss finish dark walnut which is real nice looking. Oh, and the barrels are 28".

Re: Beretta S 55 O/U

4cslabs,
It is a 80% for sure, if not more.

Thanks.

Try gunsamerica.com or just google or yahoo search your gun info, you should be able to get a ballpark figure that way. Let us know what you find out!

Re: Beretta S 55 O/U

book value of
400 good,
500 vg
600 exc

Might be able to get $50 extra being a 20. $500 would be a fair starting price.

Some call it paradise, I call it home.
