Springfield 20 gauge pump

9 posts in this topic

I have a question about this gun, since I don't know anything about guns. My buddy wants to sell me this gun that is about 10 years old and I've never heard of it before and I don't know what it looks like either? Is this something that my kids could use? Any help would be appreciated.

I have a 4-10 springfield pump nice gun, I don't use it a whole lot though. Springfield aren't that great of a gun. But should work for a kid (starter shotgun), I wouldn't pay to much.

Wouldn't pay more than $50.00. Depends how good of a shot he is. If he shoots like his old man, he'll need a better gun to hit anything.

Give me the model and condition of the gun and I'll let you know, on Thursday night, about what it's worth.

I had one, alot of years ago, my first pump gun. It shoots and handles like the Remingtons I have now. Wish I still had it, but I sold it back to the guy who sold it to me so his son could grow up shooting it. It may not be worth a ton of money but my experience with that gun was worth a mint to me. I don't know if the gun itself is only 10 years old, I don't know when Springfield went out of business. Good luck, take it for a test spin at the local trap range, see how it fits and how well you shoot it. Tim

this is the first gun that I shot and now I've handed it down to my 12yrold son and he loves it and might I add he shoots it better than I ever did. he has shot pheasants,ducks,geese and next spring hopefully he can take a turkey with it.

its probally worth 50-100 dollars depending on the shape of it

great gun and is still easy to find parts for if needed

If its the Model 67 then it has to be older than ten years, I believe. I have one that was made under contract for Coast to Coast as the Model 670. I cut the barrel down to 24 inches and mounted a 2 power scope for a kid's slug gun. The first shot fired in anger took a nice doe. The only problem is that when ejecting empties, you have to do it with gusto or the empty hangs up. They're good solid servicable guns that will take a lot of use.

I don't think any firearm that is not a single shot, in good working condition, should sell for less than $100. When was the last time anyone saw any pump for under $100. If its between friends, there might be an exception.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
