    Randle, I don't know anything about these (sorry), but remember that Miroku has been making Browning shotguns under license since the 1960s (FN since the 1970s), Winchester thereafter. They started out making firearms in the 1890s, so have quite a bit of experience. You might have something nice there.

    I can probably be of help if if you could please advise as to condition and model/grade. (Close ups photos showing engraving/etching, would also be of help)

    Best,
    Gary

    Great guns! Miroku has made guns under Browning and Charles Daly. I cant help with current values but think you have a couple of great pieces! I have been looking for a Miroku O/U in 12 Ga for a while and wish one of those were 12 instead of 28 or .410. Good luck in your quest!

    The condition on these shotguns looks close to flawless. Were they ever used? If not, that would increase their value.

    I would ask $1,300 for each of them, and not sell for less than $1,200. Maybe $1,100 lowball.

    The main problem that you will face is that these are specialty guns, designed strictly for Skeet shooting. Only a very avid skeet shooter would be in the market for these. And only someone interested in smaller bore shooting. So these guns would only appeal to a very niche market.

    Mirokus are very finely made guns, as others have already noted.

    Your best bet in selling these would be to contact skeet shooting clubs near you, or place them for sale online so that they get nation-wide attention.
