Thank you for using Just Answer!

The Winchester Model 120 Ranger is an entry-level slide-action shotgun with a ventilated rib and WinChokes.

Blue Book values (what a dealer would offer you, add 20% for retail value):

Excellent: $165-$200
Very Good: $110-$140
Good: $90-$100

The Ducks Unlimited "Whistler" is a Mossberg 500C Bantam youth gun. It has a slightly smaller size and was introduced in 1996. It is chambered for 20 gauge, has a 22 inch barrel and a walnut stock.

Retail values:

New in Box: $275
Excellent: $225
Very Good: $200
Good: $150
Fair: $125
Poor: $100

I hope this is helpful.

confused it says whinchester but you called it a mossberg
it has no ventilated rib and no winchokes
Expert:  Philip Van Cleave replied 2 years ago.
Oops. My mistake - I thought you were listing two guns. Ducks Unlimited Whistler can be a Mossberg (which is what I thought you were saying your second gun was), but it can also be a Winchester Ranger Model 120 - I didn't make the connection - must be late.Wink

Just ignore what I wrote about the Mossberg - the information above it is correct for the Winchester Model 120 Ranger. There is no premium for being marked "Ducks Unlimited."

Sorry for the confusion.
