Savage -Stevens, bought it used in 87....rebored chokes to IC and Mod, refinished stock and forearm. Metal in good shape, other than wear of older gun which was used extensively for a few years.

I paid $180 when I bought it. Any idea of a good asking price?

    Gauge?

    Check gunbroker.com for a model/gauge/condition match.

    This is actually interesting as my gut reaction is upstream of expected reality. In other words Im thinking that 20ga will command a higher price than12ga?????????????????

    This is generally the case, with 16 gauges bringing an even higher premium.
    The 311 was also chambered in .410 but on an oversized frame that rendered it more than a little "clunky"...

    I have a 311 20 gauge, but it's only in fair condition at best.  It doesn't have a butt plate, but I have a slip on rubber recoil pad over it.  Also, one of the barrels doesn't fire.  I need to have a smith fix that.

    Other than that, it's perfect. :)

    I'm kicking myself for selling one I had earlier.  It was in better shape and did not have any mechanical problems.

    As I recall, I bought the one I have about 20 years ago for somewhere in the neighborhood of $150.

    That sounds fairly reasonable considering the last time I looked at one in nice shape some years back they were asking $350.00 or so...

    I sold a super-nice one 16 gauge for $350 last year.  It had been extensively and professionally "improved."
