^ what he said. That's the actual value depending on condition (your pic isn't exactly appraiser quality).

It's a fine buy at $115, if that's what it's WORTH TO YOU, to get your son into shotgunning.

Real value is what someone's willing to pay. I would offer $80 and see where it goes from there.

I never had one, but I remember shooting plenty of other peoples' guns like that when I was a kid, and the recoil was rather vicious. I was really pleasantly surprised the first time I shot a 20 gauge pump - it did have a recoil pad - and found that although it went boom instead of bang, the recoil was not as bad. I don't know what you are planning - six is real young - but you might also look a how some of those Speer pistol shot cartridges do out of a 22 or 22 Mag rifle. I know the 357 and 44 pistol versions work pretty darned well as I have shot a bunch of those, but no experience with the smaller ones. Good luck.

I was 5 when I started shooting a 4 10 so I think he will be fine there....and I haven't been able to find a single shot 410 around here for under $150....I am going to have to cut the stock of on it for him which I don't care to do......the guy wanted 165 for it and I got him down to 115 it has a few small places in the wood but overall it is in part decent shape

I would go for it, the memories and the look on your son's face when he gets to go shooting or hunting with dad will far out weigh the up front cost, and he will be able to keep it and hand it down to his kids someday!
