PostPosted: Sun Jan 15, 2012 6:12 am    Post subject: Buying Used Shotguns Reply with quote

In these tight economic times. shopping the used gun racks seems more appropriate than ever. The gun shops that I visit have a lot of excellent used shotguns at very reasonable prices. I have found J.C. Higgins pump shotguns (really a High Standard Model 20) in 12 gauge for $80 to $120. Used Browning Citori over/unders in mint condition can be bought for $500. Probably the best deals are used Remington 870 Wingmaster pump shotguns for much less than a new Remington Express model. My personal favorites are the Ithaca Model 37 pump shotguns. I will never buy a new shotgun again. All the best..
Gil

The latest Field & Stream magazine has an article on this very topic. The writer lists many quality used shotguns like the Browning Auto 5 semi-auto and Citori as real bargains. He goes on to list the Remington 870 Wingmaster and the ithaca Model 37 pump shotguns. Surprisingly, he did not mention the Remington Model 1100 which I have and use a lot. Take care...

the 2 3/4" guns are alot cheaper here since steel came in for waterfowl but 2nd hand guns still hold thier value quite well.

Gil:

I bought a used J.C.Higgins 12g pump 2 years ago and has the poly choke and the muzzle brake as one unit. It is the High Standard model 20 made for Sears back in the day by H-Standard.

The Remington 1100 is a great gun and they are available for very reasonable prices around here. All the best...

Ok, I'll bite. Why should the Rem 1100 be included? Why should the Rem 1100 be included?
