What is the value of a Mossberg 42M (?
hello,,depending on the condition i see them from 125-200,,maybe a bit more if really clean with the original sites..
I agree with bigcurt. I generally see them sell for $175.00-$200.00 in fairly decent condition. Guns that are in very good original condition with all sights may go a little higher. Of course, guns that are in average condition or worse will go for a lower price. Many of these old Mossbergs have had more collector appeal in recent years so good examples may increase in value in the near future.
I inherited 1 need to replace stock and refinish stock this will cost $140.00 is it worth it?
I have deleted your duplicate post. Multiple posts asking the same question are prohibited by Community Rule No. 5.
Retail value for a gun in good or better condition would range from $150 to $225 depending on mechanical and bore condition and remaining original wood and metal finish.
Unless you have some personal attachment to the rifle, the cost of the replacement stock will be roughly what the gun is worth.
I have a fair collection of vintage Mossbergs.Where I am, if the 42M has all the original sights , including peep, it is easily a $300.00 rifle unless the bore is bad and the metal pitted or really worn. The sights alone will bring $150.00 or better and the trapdoor buttplate another $50.00-$60.00.. Is your gun complete? How bad is the metal? Does it have the trapdoor buttplate? Lots to be answered yet to really know the potential value of your rifle.
