Used Youth 870 express

Recommended Posts

Cinder18

I'm looking to buy a used (like new condition) youth 870 express 20 ga. I am buying this from a friend and I am not sure what a fair price is. Any thoughts? Gander Mtn is selling new for $270.

thanks

It sounds like you know quite a bit about the gun already. I know the markup on new guns is very little. Used guns have a little larger percentage at retail stores so he won't get a ton for it there, but you could certainly call a decent gun shop or sporting goods store and get a rough quote.

Here is the problem you will run into, as I did myself a couple years ago. I asked about a used youth model 870 before we bought the new one. The gun shop told me that most people keep them instead of trading them in and pass them down to the next kid or a cousin or something. He told me if he ever sees used ones, they have been through the mill and are shot. Otherwise, if he gets a good used one like you are talking about, he can sell it for almost what a new one costs because there just aren't many used ones available and so he doesn't have to discount them. I'd say if you can buy it for 80% of new you are doing real good based on what I learned. If not, just go buy a new one.

I think lawdog is in the ballpark on this one.

If you know this gun wasn't beaten like a rented mule then I'd offer him $200.

I would think around $175 would be a fair offer. If anymore than that, you might as well buy brand new as there are some real good deals out there if you have time to shop around. Great gun, have fun with it!!

$162.26 ??

Like anything, its a personal choice. The only real way to assess the market is to look a numerous examples and compare what your looking at to them.

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??

      Thinking about bring my wheelhouse up there tomorrow far a day of fishing and spend the night any new reports

      Was on Green Thursday , fished from 3:30 to 8:30. Caught 3 nice crappies and some small perch. Funny thing the crappies were caught between 4 and 5. Not a bite after dark,  they  ( or something) was there but would not bite on anything I put in front of them. Caught the 3 in deep water with a frostee and minnow. Good Luck Moose.  I may try Little Elk this afternoon

      The wing bolt on my auger sheared off yesterday. So I spent some time getting the bolt out. Then I was off looking for the strongest bolts I could find. The auger is good to go again. Seeing I have about 5000 holes drilled with it upgrading the bolts is worth it. There is a lot of ice this year and I am not having any issue powering through it with dcd985 and the clam plate. I am getting some of the ice chips out of the hole before busting through, but I did that with the lazer mag too.  I think I am going to hit green lake after dark for some crappies with my father in law.

      Mielkez, I thought that the area you are now targeting was supposed to get the most snow from the coming storm. Cliff

      That’s exactly what finding right now nothing shallow. 20 seems key.
    • james_walleye
      I'd concentrate on the buffalo/annandale area just northwest of the metro. There's a ton of good lakes. Clearwater, Pulaski, pleasant. The list is long.

      Alright guys. Change of plans. My group is concerned about lake travel. After consulting a snowfall map we've decided to stay south of the line that runs from basically Duluth to Lake Winnie area. Were coming from Wisconsin and don't know anything about MN lakes. Rather not do Mille Lacs. Looking for something a little smaller. Not asking for spots. Is there a lake within and hour or two to the north or east of the cities that fishes strong? Looking for panfish mostly with some walleye mixed in. Thanks.

      Pretty sure you DON'T know where this one is.... I see you creeping around, looking for my spots...lol
