Default Mossburg 595....

Hey fellow THT folk, any of you have any idea what this 12 gauge shot gun is worth? It's a MOSSBERG 595 12 gauge, bolt action, takes a magazine clip, has a fairly short barrel, similar to the length of my Remington Police Magnum 870. It is a pretty gun, nice wooden stock, in very nice condition. I bekieve I picked it up about 4 or 5 years ago for around $125.00 at a local pawn shop, just on a whim, I just liked the look & feel of the weapon. It's was manufactured in Conn.
I totally forgot I even had it, I just came across it while looking for something else...man, my mind IS slipping!! So, any input on current value, and, also, any input as to the quality of this gun, ANY info from someone that knows is much appreciated.
HAPPY EASTER Y'ALL!!!!!!

Happy Easter.

No idea what your gun is worth. Don't even know what it looks like. But while looking for pix of a 595 on line ...

I found a couple references to Mossberg 595 and 695 bolt action shotguns recalled do to possible discharge when the bolt is closed on a shell. I suggest you contact Mossberg with your gun serial number, see if your gun is ok or if it needs to be sent in for repair.

Mossberg was a low end gun maker. Sounds like you have a slug gun. I doubt it's worth much.

probably around what you paid for it. A short barreled bolt action shotgun is not really very desireable, as it has little purpose. I do own a mossberg pump 835 ultimag and its an awesome duck/goose gun. Not sure why they even made that shotgun. I did a search on gunbroker and nothing came up.

Nonsense. What do you mean, was? Are you implying they are no longer around, or that they are no longer a "low end" gun maker?

And the problem with a "slug gun" would be?

Well, I did a little digging and came up with this about the 595. I'm not really selling it, but, there is someone that has a new, unused 6 man tent that sells for $160.00 and they want to possibly trade for the gun. But, I'd have to make sure it isin't the one that has the problem before I even consider trading. Thanks for all the input everyone!

DavePen, I have no idea what they are now or if they are anything now. They were a low end maker. A good friend's dad was a big exec there. He always shot Mossbergs when we hunted, which was often. My dad worked for Marlin and my cousin and 2 uncles worked for Winchester so I know my CT guns. Do you?

You said Mossberg "was" a low-end gun maker. They either are, or they aren't.

Yes, I know my CT guns.

I just don't consider Mossberg to be a "low-end" manufacturer.
