OK, I started a new thread because for some reason I couldn't edit my original thread. I did some digging and it appears as though I have a 28ga model 12 which is much more valuable than I thought. It looks like the values can range anywhere from $2500 to upwards of $5000. The biggest thing I can see is if the cutts compensator is factory installed or aftermarket. If it's aftermarket there will be a choke marking on the barrell indicating what the original choke was. If it was aftermarket the value of the gun goes down by 50%. However, if the cutts compensator was purchased as an option from the factory there will be no marking on the barrell at all indicating any choke and won't even say "cutts" on the barrell. If this is the case it seems as though the value of the gun is actually increased 25%. After looking over my gun there is definitely no choke markings on the barrel which leads me to believe that the cutts compensator was ordered from the factory. From what I know of the gun it was bought from an elderly lady who's husband purchased the gun brand new to shoot sporting clays with. If all this is true, then at 60% condition it puts my gun at just over $3,000. Can someone shoot some holes in this for me? Not that I'm hoping for a let down but I want to find out the truth as if this gun is indeed valuable I'm definitely selling it as I'd hate to let something like that sit in my gun cabinet. I'd rather have it appreciated by a real collector. If you want to see some pics, they're in my other thread.
