The local gun shop has used 870 Police Magnums priced between $240 and $280. For what I can tell, there is no difference in the conditions of the shotguns across the price range.

Externally, they look a bit rough, but each one I looked at cycled well, locked up, safties worked, and no rust.

So, is this a good deal?

One more question; each of these shotguns were marked as having 18" barrels. Would one of these guns be legal for me to buy, without having to go get a $200 NFA permit?

sounds like a decent price for a police model. No, you will not need any permits or any of that stuff.

If you got the time shop around a bit, i have seen the police model priced really cheap in a few places because little shops just price them as regular 870's

These aren't NFA items. Buy away. I won't get why it's not a permit because it's not important to the answer.
