    Hello, I've been looking around all over trying to get a decent estimate of the value of a friend's shotgun I'm looking at. I haven't hunted since I was a teenager and decided to jump back into the fray this year.

    It's a Remington 1100 w/ full wood stock bought in the early 90's, 3" receiver, 30" full choke barrel. He's also throwing in a 24" cantelever rifled slug barrel, a tasco pro red dot scope and a synthetic thumb hole stock.

    He said there's a small patch where the blueing has worn a little but other then that looks and functions flawlessly.

    He's asking $450, thoughts?

    Thanks!

    That's a good price. I was going to say a value right around $600 with everything he's throwing in.

    Sounds like the price is right, if he's a good friend he might bring it down to $400.00.

    If it is a 3" Magnum Model 1100, it was made before 1987, because they quit making those when the 11-87 came out. It will most likely not function with light loads. Other than that it is a fine gun, and with a 2-3/4" barrel will be very versatile. I have a 1966 edition, and it is my main waterfowling gun. I have owned over 40 shotguns, and shot most of the others, but I still prefer the 1100.
