Default Blue Book Price Check

Looking at a nice repro 28ga 2 bbl set (26&28). SST, Case Colors redone by Turnbull.
What range are these going for? Thanks.

GI will tell you what sellers are "asking". Sale prices are unknown. Most of the 88 Repros listed have been there for months. I will guess the gun you mention would sell between $5500 and $6000 if it is really nice but redone.

IMO the blue book is out of date with the prices they have listed for repro's. The market has changed & the BB hasn't caught up with those changes.

Like the others have said GI is a good source for seeing asking prices. I feel watching the trends on gun broker to be of help as well. At least with GB you can track several guns for sale over a given time span and then see the actual price they sell for. IMO it's more useful for seeing current market values & trends.

Does the blue book have any bearing on an altered gun, at all?

Does the Blue Book mean anything at all today?

Sounds like the same gun that sold on here for $6,000.00 two weeks ago.

I believe the wood has quite a bit of impact on final selling price - many PRs have great wood, but there are also more pedestrian versions.

DT guns bring a premium.

A beavertail on a 28 gauge is not nearly as common as the splinter and will sometimes bring a premium.

Your question could address a gun that was heavily used or abused in its past life, or with other problems, which would make all estimates obsolete. Study all "sold guns" on auction sites, ignoring all "guns for sale". Many unusual catalog versions and aftermarket diversions of Repros sell for much more than common catalog iterations. Prices range from $2500 to $10000 for catalog versions. A Turnbull metal refinish would only add $1000 to $2000 to a catalog gun, a minor addition.

$1000-$2000? LOL. I wish that were true. Not even close.
