    These old guns that were made before WWII are worth between $250 and $300, according to condition. Some of them had 2 9/16" chambers. If yours has the short chamber, it is almost worthless as ammo is hard to find but available. I have one of these old guns in 12 gauge that has sentimental value but I couldn't get $100 for it if I got in a tight.

    5100 is the model #.
    Made in the 1940's, it's basically the same as a Savage 311, mechanically.
    Good solid gun. I have a 16 and a 20. Killed my fisrt anything with a .410 gauge 5100 at about 7 years old.

    I have wanted a Springfield version of the 16ga double barrel for a long time to match my Grandfather's Springfield 20 ga pump.

    When they show up around here, they are in the neighborhood of $250-350. About the same as the Savage 311 version. And, as you already know - "Grandpa's Gun" is priceless.

    Nice little gun for upland hunting, enjoy!
