might trade for a Mossberg 500 tactical..thoughts?

Hey guys,

There is a fellow that lives in Michigan, who is interested in some of the snakes I am selling, and we might work out a trade.

Iv'e been wanting to get my foot in the tacticool door, and he offered a brand new Mossberg 500 tactical.

I looked around on GB, but prices were all over, and if i'm not mistaken, generally guns are overpriced there anyway?

I'm guessing the gun is worth somewhere around $300-350?


ETA: Tactical Shotguns



Thanks,

Andy

$350 + whatever the M4 stock is worth to you. Personally I'd rather have a speedfeed.

If it is the original stock then its ATI crap that isn't worth anything.

actually, just got a picture from the fellow,

*photo moved to OP*

so its not quite so exciting..

I tried looking it up "500 tactical" as he called it, and when i looked it up on mossberg's site it had the heat shield and the m4 stock, and a shorter shell tube.


It looks like a mosbberg 500 persuader/cruiser(?)

Any idea what its worth? still around $350?

It is a tactical model, just not one of the super fancy ones. Looks like a 20" barrel with 8+1 capacity. Local stores here sell it for around $330. Trade value would be $350.

How is trade value going to be more than retail cost?

Go with the standard butt stock, replace the pistol grip as one cannot reach the safety on a Mossberg when using a pistol grip.

With the long magazine one cannot use/find anything but a slug barrel and a open choke barrel.

Ive got a 500ab with has a adjustable choke for hunting, so i'm not worried about an open choke barrel.

turns out it does come with a standard butt stock. The pistol grip is is just a pistol grip, not a butt stock with pistol grip.

Guns vs. Snakes. I'd go with the Mossberg.

i would say that gun in the picture is worth around $300. I saw a bunch of those same guns at a gun show last weekend. Of course you would have to include the background checks and transfer fees so $350 isn't too crazy. Anymore than $350 and i'd say your getting suckered. I actually picked up a mossberg 500 mariner for $400 at that same show. with the fees and background checks i paid $440 out the door.

good luck man
