    I'm thinking of taking along my Win 1300 Ranger with Deer Slug barrel to see about trading/selling it. It is a smooth barrel and has been replaced by a H&R Ultra Slug. The wood and blueing is in very good to excellent condition. Just the tiniest of nicks in the stock. Almost unnoticable unless you're really looking.

    What would be a fair asking price? I was thinking $200 for sale and would trade value be higher or lower?

    The other option I was considering for the gun would be to find a rifled barrel and put it back into use as a deer gun.

    What would you be aking if it were yours?

    Thanks in advance.

    I paid $200 for mine with smooth bore and bead. I'd ask $250, you can always come down but you can never go up.

    Makes sense. I've never traded/sold a gun, so I am new to it.

    If you get more than $175 I'll be very surprised. Just my opinion.

    $175 and I'll keep the gun and look to buy a rifled slug barrel or set it up with a tactical stock.

    Well the Win 1300 plus some cash turned into a S&W M&P 15-22. My 10 year old is very excited and we'll probably go shoot it tomorrow afternoon. This makes 8 .22s in the collection.

    Congrats. I believe a couple members here recently got M&P's .22 as well and have nothing but good things to say. Enjoy :)

    Now how's about putting up some pics of said 8 .22's? ;)
