Am I being reasonable or..?

Postby hurtin_honkers » Thu Jun 12, 2014 11:17 am

hey guys, hope to hear some positive reinforcement on this one! But I've posted a gun for sale on my facebook and actually gotten a surprising amount of people interested but it seems like everyone thinks I'm asking way too much. I have a rem 870 20g youth model, with replaced SF black synthetic stocks, that also comes with a rifled slug barrel, a mod choke, imp cyl, full, and h.s. strut undertake turkey choke, and a saddle mount with a red dot reflex sight. all in all i've personally spent around 400$ on the gun in the past year replacing the stocks, barrel, sight, etc. I've been asking 300 for it, which I personally think is more than reasonable with the extra slug barrel. anyone have any input? and dont be afraid to tell me im a moron

I am assuming it is an Express. If it's a Wingmaster you are way to low.

Here is what I would do if it were mine. Sell the basic gun on facebook. Sell the extra barrel, the sight and mount,and the chokes that didn't come with the gun at auction on eBay.
You will come out way ahead that way and can target people that need a specific item. I think actually too low even if the basic gun is an Express.

Prices vary upon location and condition but seems reasonable to me.

Okay thanks guy! And the gun is basically in mint condition, brand spanking new stocks, and very very minimal wear on the barrel and receiver
