Default Trench gun

What is a decent price to pay for a decent trench gun? I got a lead on a savage replica trench gun for just under 600$. I like the old nostalgic look feel of them but was wondering if this is an acceptable price considering I don't have any experience with one. It looks extremely clean and well maintained

Take into consideration a Winchester '97 riot gun. They were popular with the Texas rangers and outlaws as well. The early ones were used by the military in the Philippines also. Mine was mfg in 1900 and have the letter from Buffalo Bill Museum verifying it's authenticity. They are selling for less money than the trench, but are both historical and great guns. Many are cut down '97's that are used by SASS. Try to verify their authenticity. They are dependable shotguns that can be slam fired and mine has an action as smooth as butter.

norinco used to make a stunning 1897 Winchester trench gun replica, I've seen them for sale locally for $300 & change, they also made an 1897 replica with the 20" barrel & no heat shield that sell for about the same money.

or, you could make your own. get an old JC Higgins 12 gauge pump, buy a replica heat shield from Numrich arms for about $100, get a pipe cutter & go to town.

+1 on the Winchester 1897. It's a classic Browning design. I've wanted one for a while, they fetch between $400-600 in my neck of the woods.

Have an old S&W tactical that is smooth as silk. No exposed hammer and the front pump handle has a dime sized chunk out but it works fine.

Depending on your budget, whether you intend to use the slam fire feature, or shoot it at all, you can get the Norinco 97s at the low end, or you can look for the Winchester models with specific serial number series for more $. I believe the Ithaca 37 also can be slam fired.
