Looking on GB, the few used A-Bolt shotguns that have sold seem to have brought between $800 used to $1350 or so (by the time you pay the fees and shipping), but I'm not sure how the various models factor in, not sure which, if any, of them are the Hunter model and how the values compare, or how to value a new one vs. a used one.
I don't know anything about any A bolt shotgun but you definitely overpaid. Happy now?
Those are premium slug guns though I have no clue how well they shoot. Getting one kitted out with a nice scope is a real plus and one in NIB condition has to be very scarce. They haven’t been made in years and as such are very neat items.
The wood-stocked one does look nice, like a nice rifle, just chambered in 12 gauge.
That being said, from everything I've heard about these guns, I saw it as an opportunity and an investment. My plan is to hopefully shoot the one with the scope, and if it works as well as the hype, I will have a shotgun I can feel confident in carrying afield. The one that is new, (unfortunately I did NOT get the box) I plan on selling at some point in the future, and I will ask $2500 for it. If the shooter does not perform better than any other shotgun, I will sell that as well, and I'm sure I will always make my money back on them.
Plus, I've always wanted a Browning...
Personally as a long time hunter in a shotgun deer state, I've seen and used my share of shotgun setups. Those are probably the prettiest sluggers around. I'm not sure how excited I would be to have the scope mounted that far back like a standard rifle. Those of us using optics tended to stick with cantilevers and LER scopes to be safe from the 'equal-n-opposite reaction' of an ounce plus of lead down the pipe at 1600.
Very cool shotguns, and nice score.
As for craziness at a gun auction, you see all sorts of regret at auctions that follow a lengthy happy hour and dinner. Whisky and ego conspire to get some guys going absolutely bonkers when the auctioneer starts.
