    Hi, newbe here. I was reading a thread on this site about a Richardson 12 ga slam gun that someone had seen for sale somewhere at $3500.00. I was wondering if anyone knew what these guns are actually selling for?
    Yes,, I have one , unfired, in the original cardboard box. Thanks

    Hey! Welcome to THR. :)

    I think that you'll find that without pics, you're going to get a lot of answers, but none of them very helpful. Even though a gun being NIB and unfired is important, a lot of a gun's worth is dependent on it's actual physical condition. Any scars, dings, scratches, or the like can sometimes seriously affect it's worth.

    What I would suggest, is taking as many detailed pics of the piece as you can, making sure to include any odd markings, serials, etc and post them in this thread. I would also suggest PM'ing a Mod using the little exclamation point inside of the red triangle at the bottom left hand side of your original post, and ask them to move this to the Firearms Research section of the site. You're more likely to get a quick, focused response over there than here in GGD.

    Good luck, and welcome again!

    I kinda thought the $3500 was a wee bit screwy, but I had to ask. Thx

    I wouldn't sell it. As curiosa goes, it's a collectible item. The market is down at present. Sure you can't SELL it for four figures but could you BUY an NIB one for $600? I doubt it.

    Insure it for a grand, oil it yearly and let the market catch up.

    Unfired condition...now there is a puzzlement...


    I don't think I would volunteer for testing it myself, to be sure.
