    How much should I get for my shotgun? It has a Leupold VX-III 2X7 on it. The scope was over $350. Click image for larger version

            The shotgun is a $500 to $600 gun, the scope, a Leupold VX-III is close to $400. Saw a Browning shotgun like mine at a gun show Sat that was $850.00.

              They never made a VX3 in 2-7X.
              They did a 1.75-6X and a 2.5-8X but those have larger objectives.
              My guess is that your VX3 is a 1.5-5X (that model has a 20mm front).

              BPS is a good gun, but the engraved models tend to fetch less.

              Unfortunately, scopes on guns don't really hold their value. Unless it is exactly the combo somebody is looking for. Best bet is to sell the scope on an auction site.

              Right now, since Leupold ditched the VX2 for the Freedom line, old VX2s are fetching high prices. Read: deals are gone on used ones.

              I do not know if the madness there has translated to the VX3 stuff (which is still made).

              With PCR in my state, plus reg HP for private land......slug guns are a hard sell. Even ones that can do double duty with a choke tube change (turkey and deer). Would think a pretty one costing a few dollars more to be even a tougher sell.

                The value of an item is whatever somebody is willing to pay.
                Gun show prices often are ridiculously high.
                Even if it is a good deal..........somebody has to want it.
                Years ago my state was no HP rifle for deer, so good quality rifles were a hard sell.
                Shotguns and .22 rifles were what was moving.
                Now that HP rifle is legal for deer.............the days of the deals are gone!
                Old timers are dumping slug guns, and going to lesser recoil rifles.
                Turkey guns? Most folks want an auto, and camo too.
                Your rig seems more geared towards the tweed wearing deer/turkey hunter that for some reason wants one gun to do both jobs (if of choke tube version).
                Those guys IMHO would tend to want a nice slug gun for deer and a nice turkey gun (two guns).......since they have the $ to burn...............or they want a chinese pump 870 clone because they are super tightwads.

                Check Gunbroker for completed sales. That tells you what stuff is selling for. Regional pricing is a thing of the past, since folks will buy from various places on the web.

                With long gun shipping at 40 bucks and FFL transfer 25...........figure your localized pricing accordingly.

                  Scope is a typo, I have a 1.5X4 VX-III. The shotgun is engraved with a deer on one side and a tukey on the other. Uses an extended rifled slug choke and a full turkey choke. Shoots about 2.5' Winchester Supreme Slugs at 100yds and is a solid 60yd turkey gun. I think I have a 100yd slug target. Click image for larger version
