Rem 16 Gauge Wingmaster OLD

ok so i was pumped to get my grandfathers shotgun last year. an almost mint 16 gauge remington wingmaster. from what im told he recieved it some 30 years ago and never even shot it!!! so i belive its to be one of the first produced. i used it last year on small game, turkey, and some clay. worked perfectly. from what i hear they are a very saught after gun..."the gun that carries like a 20 and hits like a 12" and "a favorite of upland hunters." so im wondering what it could be worth? should i put it on the rack and retire it from its hunting days?

Yep what ronn said. I still have my Christmas 1967 Remington 870 16 ga wingmaster. Even in excellent condition value probably would not exceed $250.00-275. 16 ga shotguns are starting to bring back some value after many years of declining dollars. You can be proud to hunt with it and add to the memories that grampa put the 16 through and you can't put a $ amount on that! I too have have my grampa's shotgun its a very old nickle barrel Winchester model 12, 12 ga made in early 1900's. Highly used but priceless in my eyes!

The 16g remingtons actually carry like a 12 and hit like a 16. The remington 16g models are just a chambered down 12g. The recievers are the same as are the barrels. The term "carries like 20 and hits like 12" is from the Brownig A5 which has a true 16g reciever. You want to see sought after price a sweet 16.

There not in the box but I got a sweet and a standard 16 from the 50's. Absolutely wonderful guns.

I never had a Browning 16 but I made a stupid mistake a few years back and traded a 12 ga 3" mag with the 32" barrel. Wish I could go back and retrieve that one. It was in ex condition. I traded for a Browning A-bolt in 260 Rem for my son for his first deer rifle. He later sold it.

If you like it shoot it. I have an old Winchester model 12 it was built in 1921 it belonged to my Dad I like it,it shoots great and I still use it from time to time. It is a 12 guage not a 16 but that doen't matter. But that don't matter.

I've never shot my gramps 12 ga its more of a retirement thing for me. I'm sure I could shoot some low brass shell without worry but for now it sits in its place next to my Dad's Browning sxs. We could have a new thread regarding the shooting of prized firearms or keeping them locked away?
