    There is one listed on gunbroker.com similar to this one, with a poly-choke, at an opening bid of $799 but no bidders yet. Located in Spokane, Wash. and nine days to go on the auction.
    These guns are shooters, to be enjoyed in the field. Let your heirs worry about the depreciation.

    The World voted against poly chokes 40 years ago.

    The cost of replacing the barrel would require years of appreciation to recover.

    Even then, you would live in fear of wear and tear.

    A wall-hanger for nostalgia freaks.

    The family of the original owner of a Sweet sixteen were selling it last weekend. It was purchased in 1955. I gave it a cursory look and estimated it in 95+ condition - only thing I found was very light rust on loading gate. It would have easily been removed. Stock was in almost perfect condition. The only thing I was not sure of, it had a poly choke and I was not sure if this was a factory option or not and if it would deter from the value of the gun. The asking was $575, but I believe a $525 offer would have bought it. Should I have pulled the trigger on the deal? What would you estimate the value to be??
