You are a lucky guy. The M97 is one of the best pump shotguns ever made.

Hi All,
need a little advice, i was just offered $300 for the gun is that about right considering it's age and condition. part of me wants to keep it just for the fact of how old it is, but i've been eyeing up a Sig pistol i want and 300.00 or more would help. what do you think??

I would not sell a 97 for $300 unless it was in terrible shape. Yours looks very good to me, but how is it mechanically?

No way would I sell for that even if it wasn't fully functional. It's worth twice that easy.
