That looks to be a couple of hundred dollars below anything comparable, however scratches and dents on new guns are real value killers. I would offer them $1800 and see where it goes.
What could have happened... did.

I do not trust Remington's dating service accuracy. If they were, you could end up with Nancy Pelosi.

Ask him what the price would be to order a new one...and compare.

In my area, most of the Browning O/U's are selling for about $ 300 under list price in box. Stores that put guns out on the shelf for customers to "fondle" still consider them new....but one store I know, if you scratch it you buy it / or you pay the difference of what he'll have to sell it for...the stores own that inventory / they can't send it back to factory ...
