Too bad about your cat.

As said, the recoil pad cuts the collectors value. Agree, around $450.

anywhere from $300-$1,000 is what I've seen around my area. In your condition I agree with the others... $450ish.

BUT....If I were you...I would NEVER sell that shotgun.

First successful pump shotgun ever designed...and by the genius himself John Browning.

There's alot of history in those weapons.

Default re: barrel pix of model 97 Win.

The pix I showed are all I have.. it is not a riot or trench gun... full choke and didn't know enough to measure barrel...
Is it possible to replace the butt plate, providing the stock wasn't trimmed off????
Larry

I had a 1950's Model 12 that I sold last year that had the stock cut back and a recoil pad installed. After measuring the stock and comparing to an unaltered M12 the offer went down $75. I took it 'cause I wanted to buy different shotgun.
