These guns go for anywhere from $800-$20,000 depending on the condition, matching serial #'s and traceable history. I have seen 1 new in the box 1878 colt shotgun with factory letter that went for $10,000, and another 90% metal and wood, had some handling marks, that had some history behind it that went for $14,000. Most average pieces go for around $1,500-$3,000 in fair condition considering that they are over 100 years old at this point. A good source of information on firearms pricing
