HI...could you perhaps send an image and note any damage to the wood, condition of the bore and length of barrels? If you know the choke, that is helpful as well....
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Well will I'm not in a place to send a photo, however, left barrel is a choke,

using a dime to measure with

 

Expert:  Will replied 5 years ago.
An image will help greatly with grading, but if you give good details, I can go from there...the choke rating (full, modified) should be marked on the underside of the barrels when you pop the breech....
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

so if you could give me ball park figure perhaps I could give you more info from home,

I'd like to purchase this old double barrell tonight and you could help me.

have other firearms to send to you next week,

thanks, George

In well used condition, assuming the bore is not pitted, dinged or eroded, you can safely pay $250 to $400 if the weapon is sound...any more than that, you will need to see case colors and have a bright, shiny bore...and very nice wood...Best, Will
