What Is My Field Shotgun Worth?

Historical Context

Field shotguns are among the most popular type of firearm in the United States. Due to the fact that they are the primary firearm for bird hunting and sport (skeet, trap and clays) shooting it makes sense that field shotguns would be so desired. Both skeet shooting and trap shooting are Olympic events.

There are several well known and well regarded companies who manufacture field shotguns. Remington, Browning, Winchester, Benelli, etc. all have their own variation(s) of a field shotgun.

Determining Value

A major factor in determining value for any firearm comes from the condition of the gun. If it is in mint condition with little finish wear from handling, the gun can retain a good portion of its retail value. If more usage is apparent and the gun has scuffs, dents or scratches on the slide or polymer lower, the value will lower with each imperfection. Same goes with the metal parts, the more scratches and faded bluing finish that becomes present on the gun from handling and usage can greatly diminish its value. The takeaway is that as the condition of the firearm worsens, the less it will be worth when re-sold.

A major factor for determining value for a field shotgun lies in the make, model and caliber. Certain field shotguns were created to be more budget-friendly and therefore do not have a very high resale value compared to the more specialty and niche field shotguns that are out there, and there are a lot that fall somewhere in between those two distinctions.
