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.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...

      @donethat Where is this access you speak of?  I’m not familiar with “bullhead bay”.  Is there a problem with people trespassing? The access I was referring to last year looked pretty public to me.
    • Borch
      Carb kit may help.  It's plugged or gasket/diaphragm dried out or cracked.  Alternating between choke and open when running will sometimes help if diaphram.

      Anything new that way?  I was kicking around the idea of fishing Fish Trap this weekend but went elsewhere in the area.  Been finding 14-15 inches regularly.

      Get some sea foam in that gas tank and run ‘er!  I can’t tell you exactly where it’s gummed up, but it is.  It’ll take a tank and maybe two but it should clear up. Or, take the carb back off soak it and clean every oriface you can find by poking and blowing compressed air through all the holes.  Put a new carb kit on it and reinstall. Whichever way you prefer should work. Mix your gas with 100:1 Amsoil next time, especially if you let it sit with gas in it over the summer.  I run about 75:1 and have gotten away without gummed up carbs when forgetting to clear the gas from last year - like today.  First day starting the gas auger.  I found out it wasn’t stores empty like I normally do. Took about 10 pulls but she came around and did fine on the lake today.  I WAS annoyed to find gas in it but I have no one to blame but me.
