Gun Value | What is the Current Blue Book of Gun Values?
1. Benelli M3 Convertible
The Benelli M3 Convertible can switch from semi-automatic to pump action. This dual-mode shotgun is durable, reliable, and always ready to shoot.
Gun Value: It’s a versatile firearm that sells for only $1590. While expensive for some, it is self-defense insurance through and through.
You can’t put a price tag on that.
2. Benelli Nova/Supernova
The Benelli Nova/Supernova is a solid and durable 5-shot capacity pump-action shotgun.
Gun Value: The stock and receiver make one solid unit sold at a reasonable $690.
3. Beretta 486 Parallelo
Gun Value: At $5350, the Beretta 486 Parallelo is quite expensive but a durably-made top-quality side-by-side shotgun.
They say it’s a gentleman’s gun made for the top game.
4. Beretta A400 Xcel
The A400 Xcel’s follow-up shots are 36% faster than other fast-cycling shotguns. But, despite its power, it also has reduced recoil, which allows for a softer shooting.
Gun Value: These are just some advanced features for a price tag of $1820.
5. Beretta 1873 Renegade
The Beretta 1873 Renegade has an imposing quality and smooth action. It’s a steel-framed, lever-action rifle with a capacity of 10 shots.
Gun Value: The selling price of this firearm is around $1350.
6. Chiappa Little Badger
The Chiappa Little Badger is a super-compact rifle with a unique wireframe stock. It’s the kind of gun you give your mom on Mother’s Day because of its weight and ease of use.
When it folds in half, you’ll think it’s just another toy gun. But this little guy shoots in .22lr and .22wmr calibers.
Gun Value: $200 or less
7. Chiappa 1887 Lever Action
This Chiappa 1887 is another John Browning Classic. If you’re fond of watching cowboy movies, you’ll definitely see one of these shotguns.
Gun Value: Although no longer in production, it’s a sought-after gun by collectors and still sells for up to $1000.
Strap this on along with a couple of revolvers, and you’ll be a 21st-century John Wayne in a jiffy.
8. Chiappa 1886
The Chiappa 1886 lever-action rifle is available in 5, 7, and 8-shot magazine capacity. This is similar to the Winchester model designed by John Browning.
It features a quick and easy breakdown. It’s so tiny, you can hide under a nook and not have this gunpoint out.
Gun Value: You can buy one of these rifles for $1500.
9. Cimarron 1885 High Wall
This 1885 High Wall is a single-shot rifle designed by John Browning himself when he was 24 years old. It is known for its simplicity.
This gun’s manufacturing rights were bought by the General Manager of Winchester.
Gun Value: The price of this rifle is $1115.
10. CZ USA 612/620
This CZ USA 4-shot capacity pump-action shotgun has better components than others in its price range. Shotguns semi-auto are great, but nothing compares to the kick and feel of a pump action.
Gun Value: At $405, you get great value for a top-quality firearm. The rail also allows you to attach accessories, namely, a reflex sight.
11. Franchi Affinity
The Franchi Affinity is a slim and light semi-automatic shotgun with fiber optic front sights. In addition, it features an inertia-driven system for modern shotguns.
Gun Value: It is built to the highest standards for $900.
12. Henry Big Boy
The Henry Big Boy is a lever-action shot rifle with 20-inch octagonal barrels. It’s a nice piece of American craftsmanship with a capacity of 10 shots in various calibers.
Gun Value: This rifle’s $900 price tag is very reasonable.
13. Kalashnikov USA MP-27
The Kalashnikov USA MP-27 is famous among hunters in the USSR. While the Kalashnikov is best known for their rifles, the USA MP-27 is still a force to be reckoned with.
A pioneer of vertically-aligned shafts, this classic hunting shotgun has a modest price tag of $615. As far as gun parts for replacements go, they won’t be hard to find.
14. Kel-Tec KSG
This firearm is Kel-Tec’s introduction to the shotgun market. It is a scary-looking gun that would make the NRA look twice.
Gun Value: Its compact size is a bit deceiving for holding a 12-shot mag operated in pump action. Nevertheless, this shotgun sells at around $990.
The integrated rail system allows you to put accessories such as flashlights and sights for an extra cool factor and tactical ability.
15. Merkel Over and Under
This is another Merkel shotgun featuring over and under barrels.
Gun Value: The name already speaks about the quality of this gun and its price tag of $15,845.
Not really surprising for Merkel-made firearms. And, as with Merkel, shooting this gun is really, really fun.
16. Merkel K3/K4 Single Shot
This single-shot capacity rifle is handcrafted by one of Germany’s most revered gun makers.
Gun Value: Made for the actual elite game, these guns sell at a jaw-dropping $15,395, clearly not a weapon for amateurs.
It’s not bolt action, so you won’t need to worry about the mechanics throwing off your aim. However, it’s still a Merkel, so you can be sure that gun parts will be pretty expensive.
17. Merkel 96K Drilling
This 96K Drilling is another masterpiece made by Merkel. A gun with three barrels composed of a side-by-side shotgun in 12 or 20 gauge and a rifle barrel underneath.
Gun Value: It’s pretty expensive at $9,000. But, considering the manufacturer and the shotgun-and-rifle make, the price tag is justifiable.

Gun Value: At $980, you get a nifty gun for sporting clay and upland bird hunting.
21. Mossberg 835 Ulti-Mag
This Mossberg shotgun was made to aid waterfowl hunters with the migration to steel shot. Its pump action 5-shot capacity shotgun gives you great value for your money.

22. Mossberg 535 ATS
The Mossberg 535 ATS is a nicely weighted gun with super smooth pump action.

23. Mossberg Maverick 88
The Mossberg Maverick 88 shotgun’s barrel can be interchanged with the Mossberg 500. That is, if they have the same gauge and capacity.
For a good reason, some law enforcement forces look to Mossberg as their go-to shotgun manufacturer.
Gun Value: It allows the shooter to have options for hunting purposes at an affordable price of $310.
24. Mossberg 464
This is a reinvention of the western style cowboy gun. The lever-action Mossberg 464 has 13 rounds magazine capacity.
It takes some inspiration from old-school Winchester shotguns, but it is its own breed.
Gun Value: It’s an inexpensive rifle for $520, also available in 3-dot adjustable fiber optic sights.
25. Remington 870
The Remington 870 is one of the most versatile pump-action shotguns globally. As a result, the US military and police have adopted this top-quality firearm known for its tactical use.

The Rock Island Armory M5 was first made for law enforcement.
Gun Value: At a very affordable price of $250, it’s also great for personal protection and home defense.
29. Rossi Matched Pair
The Rossi Matched Pair is an interchangeable shotgun and rifle combo. It’s compact, so if you need to travel lightweight, carrying both guns for hunting or for whatever reason, the matched pair is perfect.
Gun Value: Prices are at around $200 or less.
30. Stoeger Coach Supreme
Gun Value: The Stoeger Coach Supreme is sold at $500.
This double-barrel shotgun features two triggers with the other to use in case of a misfire.

The Stoeger Coach is another lightweight shotgun weighing only 7 lbs. It comes with beautiful grade A satin walnut stocks.

So why not bring a bolt action along?
32. Stoeger Uplander

As the name suggests, this Stoeger shotgun is ideal for hunting waterfowl.
