Value of this 590A1? (edited to fix links)

I have a Mossberg 590A1 I bought years ago. My wife wants a shotgun she can handle and i barely touch this one. I'm planning to sell it and use the proceeds to buy the youth model 20ga she liked.

Since I won't be selling it here I was hoping to get some insight as how much to ask. It's barely been fired and has one small scratch on the receiver.

Mossberg doesn't list the exact configuration I bought. What I have appears to be this shotgun:

Whoops. Apparently my links didn't work. Let's try this again.

It looks just like this one except it has the longer (9 shot) mag tube

So you have the 20" 8+1 590 A1 with Ghost Ring Sights and the +4 SpeedFeed Stock. See what they're going for new. You'll get half that from a gun shop and in between the two from an individual.

Check the inside of the barrel doesn't have any "dribbles."

Good luck.

PS: Your wife was NEVER going to be able to handle that honkin' thing. I bought the 5+1 18-1/2" (the one in the picture actually) myself!

Yeah, it's a little big even for me and I'm 6'2". Which is probably the main reason it never gets shot. I'm sure someone else will get better use out of it.
