Thanks:

I'm not interested in selling it. I was just out shooting some trap with old betsy when the owner of the operation told me to quit shooting the gun and place it on the shelf for it had a value between 7-8K. If this is the case I clearly need to get a special insurance rider on gun.

Sorry, but no. The Sterlingworth was the bottom of the line; in fact, Ansley Fox did not want to make the guns but was talked into it by his marketing people (he had priced himself out of the average-Joe market).

Being a 20-ga helps a lot, but being post-1929 hurts it (after the Savage buyout). You would be well-advised to take it to a reputable collector for a hands-on appraisal, but expect it to come up shy of $1500.

In the meanwhile, shoot it and enjoy!

Good to know. I won't tell my wife (that was my reason for buying a new gun).
