gun help!

Question

Pig_sticka

aight since i cant post in the hunting forum i am posting this year.
my grandpa gave me a gun a while ago and i was just wondering what the worth of it is. i will never sell it but it is just something that would be nice to know.

New England Firearms co
parnder single barrel shotgun

that is about all i know right now.
Is there anyway to figure out exactly what it is?
What price range is it in? never been used and it has only seen maybe 5 minutes of daylight out of the box.
i know nothing about guns that is why i am asking, probably never will.
any help would be much appreciated. thanks

Hey pig_sticka, I've got one of those too. It was the very first gun I ever bought and I still use it. I paid about $85 about 20 years ago, its a 12ga. I beleive they still sell them today.

it looks like a pretty sweet gun, 20 years ago at 85 dollars plus inflation smile.gif
i think he won it at a ducks unlimited get togther or something, or maybe that is just what i believe happened.

anyone know the value of it now or what it sells for?

These are still relatively inexpensive guns, but they are well made. I am not sure what retail is right now, but most sport shops have a gun blue book for reference. I have seen the blue books in public libraries also.

I have a NE Arms break open rifle in 22 Hornet that is a real hoot to shoot.

Pig_sticka,
Yeah, hate to say it, but they are pretty common. I used to work in a pawn-shop, and we'd sell them for as little as $50.00 and only loan $25.00 on even a nice one, like what you say you have. Hang on to it, though. Could be fun for solo-skeet or trap.

ill probably never use it because it was from my grandpa. if i do go hunting sometime i might use it though. but it is too personal to do much else with it. i didn't think it would be a ton but i figured worth alittle bit. i know he has gun cases just full of really sweet guns.

thanks for the feedback i knew i could rely on everyone here. might hang it on my wall for show. never owned any bullets for it.

      Made a few modifications to my pontoon.   I thought it would interesting to summer ice fish in the same spots I catch all of my winter walleyes.   Don

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?
    • jkrash
      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.
