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
