While making small talk at work today a good friend asked me about a couple of guns he has from his dad. One is a like new in box Supermatic Trophy. He said he had never seen his dad shoot this gun, but knew it had been. It has the 5.5" barrel, two barrel weights and muzzle brake. All of this is still in the original box. He doesnt want to sell it, but needs some kind of information for insurance purposes. I gave him the price from the Blue Book, but that is a best guess now. Can you guys give me a ballpark so he knows what to submit without an appraisal please. I don't have pictures because its not mine, but i will ask him for some today. I know that there are a few people on here that seem to specialize in High Standard and hope they can share their expertise. Thanks in advance.

The current Blue Book of Gun Values is a good representation of this gun's value. If you are not satisfied with that look for what the guns sold for in the closed auctions on *** ******.

Unless the gun is separately scheduled on the insurance policy which is seldom a bargain, the insurance adjusters will use the Blue Book or perhaps The Standard Catalog of Firearms for settlement.

Its a great gun and nearly irreplaceable. Mine was a gift from a dear friend who competed with it. You need good mags that are well tuned, otherwise they will be frustrating jam monkeys. Also necessary is high quality ammo, generally standard velocity.

With the weights and muzzle brake it barely jumps when shot, allowing for very rapid follow up shots. Have you're friend give it a go before he sells it. He may never get another chance to shoot one if he does.

Just follow these instructions closely.

.IMPORTANT!! Follow Guidelines or Post Will Be Removed
Please describe the item in as much detail as possible.

Detail does not mean "in good shape" ,describe how the wood is, how much blueing (% of original finish left) there is etc., and anything else you see that may be helpful.

Tell us all marking, words, and letters anywhere on the gun.

PICTURES are required. Clear, sharp pictures....full length, both left and right sides, as well as closeups of any unusual features, engraving, etc.
Here's How: http://www.thefirearmsforum.com/showthread.php?t=19430

Example:

If you have an old gun and the markings on it are E over LG then the gun was made in Belgium.
