I have an old...

I have an old Remington single shot 20 gauge (I believe) that I got from my grandfather. There are several patent dates starting with May of 1864 - 1874. Trying to find out how much the gun is worth. It appears VERY old.

Expert's Assistant: How can the Gunsmith help you with your firearm? Is there anything else important you think the Gunsmith should know?

Would like to know the value of the gun.

Hello! I will be assisting you today with your value question. From your description with the Pat dates 1864 to 1874 (likely Remington Arms Company Lion, NY With Pat dates of 1864, 1872, 1873, and 1874) in 20 gauge single shot this would point to the Remington Rolling Block shotgun. These were all late 1800s manufacture and are very sturdy reliable guns but not of great value. Although these are old they were and are just good working guns and not of high collector value. There was many of these made and not in high grades. With that being said value depends always in condition. If you have a near mint excellent condition shotgun and stock you would be right in the $650 to $675 range. You will get more from a private sale and less from selling to a dealer or shop.
