If its a 870 express, They go for about $320 new. Thats with rifled barrel. Depending on condition, work your way down from that price.

An express, good condition $250 give or take $25. Add $75 for both barrels (Combo). Add $100 for the wingmaster, add another $50 for quality wood on the wingmaster. Really hard to tell without knowing if it as synthetic, wood, or camo stock. 3in or 3.5 inch, express or mag.

I have never had a whole lot of luck trying to trade a gun in, but you might do better. Maybe I always think my guns are worth more than they really are.

roosterslayer I have a old 870 wingmaster that only 23/4 shells and I also have a slug barrel that is a factory remington barrel it is not rifled but it shoots like a tack driver and the last time I was checking around for rifled barrels I think hastings still makes one for the wingmaster at least for mine. hope this helps.

eyehead, 96 trigger sure seems to have given you some good numbers to consider.

Let's remember not to make this a For Sale or I Want to buy forum. We have those forums already...........

i doubt you get what trigger posted. I traded an 11-87 with a rifled barrel and regular barrel and got less than 250. thats a lot more gun than the 870.

they also will only give you 75% of the book value as they than mark it up to make a profit.

i sold mine as i had a gun that had similar functions and didnt need it anymore. its the only reason i traded it considering how little they gave me. i'd bet you get 200 max WITH the slug barrel included

Nope, I am not gonna delete it, you were given a guess on the pricing, there are other avenues to research a price as well. Email me if you need help locating some of those auction sites. My email Address is in my profile (click on my name about my picture)

Crappies, My numbers were basically for resale, not trade in. you can just about cut them in half for trade in. I never trade a gun in. Like I said, my guns are usually still like new so half price trade in usually doesn't fly with me. I'm just going by what I see them sell for online, on the racks, and at gun shows.

He wouldn't get $200 for the pumps on trade. They would probably be more likely to give him less. With many zones being rifle, not shotgun, there might not be a lot of demand for the gun. Right now is a good time to be a buyer, not a seller.

      Thank you very much Outy22!

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.

      Hi guys and gals,   Does anyone know much about this lake? I don't fish this area of the state. We are looking to stay at Cedar Point Resort for a week. Just want to get to know the lake for what it is.   Is it a bass, northern, pan fish or walleye lake? Or all of the above? The surveys don't look that impressive.   Any good guides in the area?   Thanks.   Avid

      The bite is on in Trout lake. Remote lake walleye fishing has been good. A leech or crawler has  been producing nice fish. This last week Trout lake has been good for lake trout, walleye and bass. A camper had caught and released a 44 inch pike. Bass fishermen reported 100 fish days.   The Y-store is looking into taking on BWCA permits. Please encourage and support them to do so.

      On many lakes it is possible to rent a boat for a reasonable price.  Or to hire a guide who knows the area and the lakes.
