Default Pricing on mossbergs?

I need just a general price range on some of the guns I am trying to sell if anyone can help. Also, could I take them to a gun shop to get them cleaned up before I sell them? How nice would they clean up or cost to clean up some? I am not talking about rebluing because I am not going to reblue then resell them. I hate the loose action of mossbergs and that's why I am getting rid of them. If more pictures are needed let me know. As you will see the 3rd one has quite a bit of damage to it and it was very mistreated by the previous owner. I do not even know if that is worth selling. It also has quite a bit of rust or all of the bluing has come off of it. One picture is out of place. sorry.

1st- Mossberg 500cg 20ga
2nd- Mossberg 500a 12ga
3rd- Mossberg 500a 12ga

What do the bores look like are the as bad as the outside? Personally as a gunsmith I would only buy these for the usable parts or as project guns. I think by the time you payed to have them cleaned up you wouldn't see any value in doing it. I'd list them as is in a local trade group and see what is offered. You never know some home gunsmith might offer a decent trade for all three to practice refinishing on.

All of them except the last one have pretty nice outside on them. Just minor rust that I am going to rub off once stop being lazy and go out and get some kroil and other cleaning supplys for them. Just took a quick peek at the bores. All of them are very very clean. Mirrors all day long. Like I said, the only rough looking one is of the 500a with the light wood on it. It has a rough outside but the inside is nice.

I would still list them for sale or trade. I've done much better trading lately to get what I want. The price of used guns has been high lately but trades for me have been closer to true value. As for the 500a clean what you can but I wouldn't put much in it, like I said someone might want it for a project or camp gun.

I doubt I am going to put much time into the beat up one. I am talking about wiping off some small surface rust of the nice looking 500a. Where are you located if you don't mind me asking. I forget which mod or supporting member is in the virginia area but I am going to be down that way in a few weeks and was hoping to pass off possibly the 500a in beat up condition and possibly an ithaca 22lr. m-49r(I know i'm in the shotgun thread) that I just don't have the experience to fix and thought I would put it into the hands of someone who can redo it. I am headed to 3 upcoming gun shows and was going to sell them there if anyone was looking for them.

I'm in Tn near Nashville. I'm a retired gunsmith. Where are you out of? I have seen several begining gunsmiths on here looking for projects that would allow them to practice. A shotgun with a vent rib can be quite a challange to polish up for refinishing.

I am located in Maryland near Baltimore. I know of no local gunsmiths that have been actually recommended to me on a good basis. It kind of sucks that I can't just go down the street and have someone look at what I have and work on it if needed. I have to do all the minor things by myself. I am learning slowly but surely. I have talked to a person on here before that is located in central virginia. Not a gunsmith for a job but as a hobby if I remember correctly. I will be headed to the virginia/north carolina line practically to visit family and I will be headed through virginia and figured I could always make a detour to pass on an old gun to someone who can actually do something with it. If you know any Maryland gunsmiths please let me know and I will check into taking my stuff there.

$50-$200 each as I see them. $300-$350 all I'd guesstimate.
