What is My Mossberg Shotgun Worth?

Historical Context

Founded in 1919, O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc., is the oldest family-owned firearms manufacturer in America, and is the largest pump-action shotgun manufacturer in the world. Celebrating 100 years of innovation, Mossberg leads the industry with over 100 design and utility patents to its credit. Mossberg set the standard for defensive shotguns.It’s reputation for producing reliable and affordable shotguns solidified its position as a leader within the gun industry when it comes to shotguns.

Determining Value

From budget minded bolt-action shotguns to premium quality trap and hunting grade shotguns, Mossberg produces many different types of shotguns. Known widely for its pump-action shotgun, Mossberg shotguns became legendary for their reliability as well as durability, and would lay the foundation for multiple variants to come. Though Mossberg is well known for budget shotguns, it produces quality over under shotguns such as the Silver Reserve. In recent years it released the Mossberg 590 Shockwave, a ultra-portable shotgun that gives shooters a fully legal alternative to a short-barreled shotgun without the need for a federal tax stamp.

Prices for these guns vary for many reasons including caliber, finish and the type of action whether it is pump, semi-auto or break away. Older bolt-action shotgun will fetch a smaller price in comparison to more modern type of Mossberg shotguns.

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.
