Value of NEF Mini-Pardner 20 Gauge

Hi, been lurking around here for a couple of years but this is my first post. My friend has a short sawed off style factory shotgun he might sell me but I can't find any reference as far as the value. None for sale used on gunbroker or anywhere else. Plenty of New England Firearms Pardner shotguns but no Mini-Pardner. Do any of you know if this is a very rare gun and if so how much might it be worth? I know these single shot Pardners are generally inexpensive, but this model must have been a short run, no?
Thanks, any info will be appreciated.
Kurt

Never heard of a mini Pardner single but have heard of and owned a Greenwing and a Pardner Youth.
I would do some more scrutinizing before I would roll the dice on one if that's your intention.

I have shot the gun and has Mini-Pardner name on gun. Short barrel and short stock.

I copied this off the shotgunworld.com site. From a board post. But still no value listed except someone found one for $130.00. Seems it would have a higher value.

The Mini-Pardner is a factory special "whippet" gun with an 18 1/2 inch barrel and a short butt-stock, in 20 ga.

NOPE!!!! Most of the nef singles in shotgun gauge bores are not much dough... in the last 25 years they went from $65 to $69 then $75 next they were $79 dollar guns... they jumped to $89 than $99 then the metal market prices soared and they went to $110 and leveled off at $125-130 in most places... this is new price and they are not a desired collectible so unless it is special in some way, expect to pay under a C-Note for a super clean gun.

Thanks HOGDOGS, I thought maybe this special version might be worth more since I can't find even one for sale anywhere online. My friend bought his in a pawn shop (they had two) and said guns were said to have come from a large collection.

That gun is worth EXACTLY what someone else is willing to pay for it - no more, no less..................and what that price is where you live versus someone else in another part of the country can be substantial

If it is worth what you are willing to spend, or willing to sell, then it is a good deal

I'll be dipped in ..., well, that's why I come here. I learn something new everyday.
I've got a catalog of firearms and it's not listed but that does not mean it doesn't exist.

Not much collector value, but a nice little camp gun.

Enjoy....

I still like my italian folder, even if the straight stock kicks worse than a mule.
