    I am currently trying to sell a item for $400 and had a gentlemen ask me for a trade. He is wanting to trade me a Marlin 90 20g over/under that has been redone by the Gun Dr. here in Ohio and has all papers to prove it. He sent me a video and the shotgun looks like its in excellent condition. Does anyone have any info about this shotgun? Value? He states it was valued $800 (conservatley). Is this possible? Thanks all. Im new here and hope to find some good info to help me decide which avanue to go with.Thanks Chad

    Gun Trader's Guide, 32nd ed, pg 496, Model 90 Standard Shotgun- 2 triggers NIB $678, Excellent $502, Good $400. Single trigger, add $66. 20 g, add 15%. Made 1937-1958. If the gun has been refinished, collector's value is cut a LOT. However, this is not a Parker or Merkel, and most of the value lies in being a shooter.

    Condition and originality is everything. If it looks good, and you want a 20g O/U, you're in the ballpark.
