I'm thinking about going to an auction this evening and one of the items I'm interested in is a Mossberg 510E pump in .410. The gun is in great shape, almost new I'd say. How much is a shotgun like this really worth? I know in an auction setting prices can get out of hand and I want to know what would be a reasonable price. I have a couple grandsons, one a month old, the other's due in December; it seems like a good gun to put back for one of them.:) I'd sure appreciate any advice! Thanks, Gary

My dad had a Coast to Coast pump in .410 when I was growing up, it was a great grouse gun and a sweet shooter. Id say a good .410 would be worth double what a more common 12 or 20 gauge in comparable condition.

Thanks for the reply! Man, I don't know if I'm going or not. However, it's rainy weather around here and that might knock down the turn-out a bit. But, the shotgun and all the other items are all posted online, the usual suspects watch that site.

Here's a link if anyone's interested, the guns are right after the coins. I've looked at most of them already as the owner is a friend and co-worker who transfers guns for me and I was there earlier this week. I've always liked those Remington Model 51s too. btw-that Ruger .357 has a sweeeet trigger!

Almost any Mossberg .410 is worth north of 200 assuming nice condition.

My only question would be, .410 why does it even exist? So many other gauges are so much more versatile and get the job done much more effectively. Just asking.

I don't know. I don't know anything about the history of the .410 gauge, must have been a reason for it at the time. I've known lot's of folks who started off with one, and a few who still use it to hunt (see ismith's post above).:wink:

I have a Mossberg .410 pump, used to use it for Doves, Quail, and Chukars. Now its pretty handy for skunks and starlings, and the occasional tree rat that gets destructive. I originally bought it for my daughters when they wanted to try trapshooting. Didn't take them long to realize a 12 ga throws a lot more pellets.

28 ga is the cats meow. IMHO.

Oh yeah. A friend has a 28 ga over/under, Ruger I think. Awesome on Quail!

Well damn, I talked myself out of going to the auction Saturday night. Today, the auctioneer told me that the Mossberg .410 sold for $150! Shit. Oh, the Ruger Speed Six stainless .357 got $650.:shades:
