I have the opportunity to buy a Colt Sauer Model 3000 Drilling in 12x12 / 243 cal. The gun appears in very good shape. I'm going to say 90-95% Its been shot but no signs of being "hunted" no dings, some pressure marks, overall very nice gun. It's part of an estate and the "Value" is listed at $3,000. Is that fair, high, low? Any idea what to pay for something like this

Any help is appreciated.

Sounds more than fair to me!
Been looking for a good drilling for some time, and most start in the 3500.00(cdn) range for a plain-jane model.
IIRC, the 3000 is fairly well engraved. Never seen one with "exhibition" grade wood, but they normally dont worry about the stock cracking either.

Thanks for the input.. I placed the same question in the classified section (thinking I might get more exposure) and got much the same replies.

Regards,
Jose

I bought one new back in 1963 and it was $1600 usd back then, so I think if the gun is in very good shape it is well worth $3K us IMO!

IMHO that is an Excellent price for that drilling.
The Sauer 3000, is the same "gun" as the Colt Drilling, and the same as the Weatherby Drilling.
The wife and I each have a Sauer 3000 Drilling in 12x12x30/06. with scopes in QD Claw mounts.
They are most excellent guns. They handle like a premier side by side shotgun. Their rifle barrel is very accurate.
It is my wife's most favorite hunting gun.
It is one of my most favorite hunting guns.
