    That's an interesting gauge for collectors. I saw one at the gun show last week IIRC they were asking $700.
    Look on gunbroker for a ballpark price too.

    Good luck!

    +1 These are fairly collectible. Really neat little shotty's. Basically a miniature Model 12. Was on a skeet team with a guy I worked with when I worked at B.E. Hodgdon that had one. He called it his Idiot Stick, as in "You're an idiot to shoot skeet with a .410 bore.". :laugh:

    Most likely a little higher than you were told but with todays economy probably not as high as book value. Would be best to try here then gunbroker for buyers. I will try to figure a round about worth after you get pics up but probably will end up needing more info.

    At the Portland show last week, there was a very nice one, original, and probably 90-95% condition. Asking price was $1275. Field Grade. Higher grade guns will bring more. Keep in mind this is asking price on a dealer table. Perhaps high-ball. Valuing a gun like that is impossible without seeing it.
