SKB Model 3000 - Market Value

Hey guys and gals,

I'm just curious of what the market value of an SKB Model 3000 shotgun with enlays and Walnut stock would be? I don't know any other details.

Anybody got any clues? I can't seem to find a reference point anywhere on the internet.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I found a Google cached page of a 3/06 gunbroker.com auction with a Buy It Now price of $750. The last bid was $650 and didn't meet the Reserve.

"SKB Model 3000 Ducks Unlimited 12 Gauge Semi Automatic Shot Gun
Hunting scenes on both sides of the receiver
Like new & unfired in original box
Good looking wood
28" barrel, interchangable chokes, plug and choke wrench."

IIRC the 3000 was a high-grade version of the 1900.

Thanks John.

I suppose $300 would be a steal then.

I honestly don't know and I'm not near any reference books, but what the heck it's a nice looking gun for even $500 or $600. I'll look into it some more later this evening.

In 1981 a man shot 2264 targets in an hour with a Model 1900. Both models will shoot weak target loads and heavy 3" hunting loads and only weigh 7-1/4 pounds according the spec chart.

Yeah that's the exact gun the way it was described to me.

I had found that link earlier today. I think it is a fine looking shotgun and I think it's going to be a really good price on it as well.

Any additional info would be fantastic. Thanks for your time.

Q – Are parts available for my gun?

SKB Shotguns USA stocks most parts for the over-and-unders (Models 500, 600, 680, 700, 800 505, 605, 585, 685, 785, 885 and 85TSS), side-by-sides (Model 100, 150, 200, 280, 400, 385, and 485), and for the old gas-operated semi-automatics (Models XL300, XL900, 1300, 1900, and 3000). Replacement or accessory barrels are not available for any models.

Parts are no longer produced for any of the recoil-operated semi-automatics (Model 300 and 900), or for the SKB Century Trap models.
