GUN Winchester 1300 question

    I've owned my Winchester 1300 for almost 8 years now... I was thinking about selling it when I ran into some info about it. On winchester's site it's listed under "Historic/No longer in production" guns. I guess they stopped making them in 2006.

    Here is the gun in question:
    http://www.winchesterguns.com/prodinfo/catalog/historic_detail.asp?cat_id=512&type_id=917&cat=012C

    It's the 28" version. I've only shot a few ducks and one pheasant with it... but if they don't even make them anymore maybe I'll hang onto it... Do you guys think it will increase in value over the years? I'm no gun collector but I know guns no longer made are worth more in general.

    Opinions? I still own all the chokes it came with, along with the duck plug that's been in it since I first bought it... I put it in right away and it's still there. It used to be my duck hunting gun.

    Edit: one of the perks I've always liked is it takes 2 3/4 and 3" shells.

    Knowing nothing about collectablity of guns but plenty for other hobby items. Its value won’t really be affected by the fact that it is no longer in production but rather the number produced. Yours is a 98ish model year in how many years of production? So unless it was a very uncommon shot gun I would doubt a significant increase in value in any point in the near future.

    yea true... The serial number is L3315XXX

    So... if it goes from 1+ there has been over 3 million :hs:

    It's my oldest shotgun... I feel as though I should give it to my son (when I have one)

    I wouldn't sell it just because I don't see the point, plus there's a 99% chance it'll never be worth anymore than you paid for it. Winchester made a lot of 1300's, and they were never all that sought after to begin with.

    It'd be uncommon to find a newer shotgun that WON'T do that :hsugh:

    Only reason why I would ever sell a gun is to make more room in the safe. Only would do that if I could not afford anbother safe.

    The new speed pump and the 1300 are VERY similar. I think they just changed the name.
