Wilson Combat 12 Gauge used in movies..?

What is one of these worth normally?

I've never heard of either of the movies it was supposedly used in.

Neither have I.

Note that it's a SBS, a short barreled shotgun, with a 14" barrel. That means transferring it will cost an extra $200 in taxes plus a bunch of paperwork- IF it's allowed, where you live.

The listing at http://www.proguns.com/wilsoncombat-...nalshotgun.asp is for $1345.00... MSRP is $1350.00 -- http://www.wilsoncombat.com/currentpricing.asp#shotguns .

I have this gun, except with a Knoxx SpecOps stock. It has an 18.5" barrel, not 14". If purchased from Wilson, it will set you back about $1,500 (with the standard stock). It is a great gun and Wilson does an excellent job of putting it all together properly. The gun also has a lifetime guarantee.

There are better choices

I had this gun. It is fine. However, I sold it and bought a nicer, Police version, with more upgrades, for less money, from AI&P Tactical in Michigan.

Wilson Combat does a nice job with the 870 Express. AI&P does a great job with the Police version (for less money). Just my .2 cents.

keep in mind unless there is documentation to prove it just saying it was in a movie does not add value to anything. and even if there were documents I don't think either of those movies would add any value to the gun.

That is a good point, documentation would be critical. Personally, the fact that a rather "ordinary" shotgun has been in a movie would not add any value to the item for me. However, I am sure there would be some collector for whom that would be a valuable addition to their collection.

Movies that noone has heard of or will admit to watching.

It's not a gun from "Stagecoach" or "Terminator 2"

Just another SBS...
