I have a Remington model 17 that I'm looking for an approximate value. I came across it very cheap, from a very reputibl man I have worked with for years. I would give it a 6.5 or 7 outof 10. It feeds and shoots flawlessly. Serial number20xxx. :?:

Your gun was made about 1923. It is a great John Browning design sized for 20 ga. only. Ithaca later used the design for the model 37 (after the patent expired). The grade, barrel length rib and choke matter as for value. With no other info about $250.

Thank you very much, that is kind of what I was going to ask for it. I needed to make sure I wasn't to far off the mark. I hate looking a fool. By the way no barrel rib, and full choke.

Remington Model 17 -- Remington Arms Co., Inc. manufactured approximately 73,000 Model 17 pump shotguns from 1921 to 1933. While production stopped in 1933, they were actually cleaning up and selling guns out of inventory until 1941. The gun was based on a John M. Browning Patent No. 1,143,170 granted June 15, 1915. However, Remington was gearing up for WW-I at that time and it would be six more years before the gun came out. Remington's designer John D. Pedersen made design refinements in 1919 (applications filed Sept. 15, 1919, Patent No. 1,429,621 granted Sept. 19, 1922 and Patent No. 1,487,799 granted Mar. 25, 1924) and G.H. Garrison made further improvements. It was the patents on these improvements that forced Ithaca to wait until 1937 to bring out their copy of this gun, though Ithaca had actually built some guns by 1932. Actually Pedersen has so many patent applications filed in that 1919 time frame it is hard to tell which really apply!
