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.

      Fished a couple hours late Tues afternoon, Weds and Thurs morning. Caught supper on Tues pulling leadcore in about 31' out from Zipple. Not the huge schools like a few weeks ago but enough to fish. Weds went rock hopping and found fish on about half the humps, no biggies. Seemed to be an unusual number of very nice boats for a Weds and all pulling leadcore. Good deal for me as I was fishing spinners. Found out that night about the AIM tourney explaining the boat show with the guys prefishing. Thurs morning was out 11 miles from the washout pulling baits in the mud and the bite was pretty good. Again, not the massive numbers seen previously but a good number of biters. The charters were scattered all over the basin with some up north as well. Still a fair number of boats bait fishing out deep. Sure hate to see summer slipping away.   Good luck.

      I have not been tromping though the woods but did flush a couple picking blueberrys

      I agree with Rayguy. A lot of ecological changes happening everywhere and I think we’re seeing that on the Whitefish chain. Keep looking for new spots and new structure. Fish are still there. It’ll be interesting to see how Fall fishing goes. I am planning on fishing the next couple of days. I’ll let you know how I do.

      Ace is right, no need to run to far to find walleyes! They are all over the East end where you will be staying. The number one rule is "trust your depth finder"! I never fish a spot unless I see a few fish there! Lindy rigs, spinner rigs, slip bobber rigs, and jigs will all catch walleyes that time of the year. Cliff

      Thank you, my husband and I usually go to Kabetogama . but we are going to go later, had a chance to go here for the first time(Labor day weekend)and are excited to try it. Found a private cabin to rent very reasonable in that bay.

      I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.

      No brush or yard waste burning today through Sunday The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has issued an air quality alert for today through Sunday for northern Minnesota.    As a result, the Department of Natural Resources will not issue burning permits for brush or yard waste for all areas north of Alexandria, including Mille Lacs and Pine counties. Burn restrictions may expand as smoke from the Canadian fires drifts south. For updates and the air quality forecast, check the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency website.

      If you are looking for Walleyes stay on the east end. There is no need to go running all over the lake to catch them. Daisy bay has Walleyes available as does Big bay which in my opinion has some of the best Walleye fishing on the lake.  Trolling cranks works this time of year, as well as Lindy rigging, or pulling spinners on a bottom bouncer. You can also find some decent evening slip bobber fishing close to where you are staying.  Good luck and have fun, you won't be disappointed.     "Ace" "It's just fishing man".
