I actually came across one of the 7-pin sidelocks (Model FE). He's asking about $2800, which seems a little pricy for a gun at about 80%. With this guy, it's hard to tell if he's trying to pull a fast one over you.
About a year ago, I bought a Beretta s56e (90%) for $150 because a firing pin didn't make contact. Just needed to be cleaned. Also, last week I found a nice engraved Win Model 96 at 90% for $50 - needed a new ejector.
On the other hand, I bought a Nikko Model 23 (95%... I thought) for $450. Turns out the forend is from another gun (serials don't match).
Anyway, he's asking $400 firm for this My Luck Model OL O/U, and as far as I can tell, it's about 80%, tops. If I bought it, it would be to trade for something I liked better down the line - not a keeper. Any advise on the value?
