    Miroku 12ga skeet gun

    Got my step fathers skeet gun here and he is wanting to sell it but I have no idea what it's worth. In good condition, especially since it's 40 years old! Any ideas on its worth, or offers? Or swaps with cash either way.

    Barrels are 760 long, cannot find a choke number, there is a '+' on the side of the barrel when open.

    The action has no play at all in it, not even a tiny bit.

    Length of pull, from trigger to furthurest edge of recoil pad is 360, 340 to edge of wood.

    Not sure if it is a repair or not, I think it is a gouge that has been re varnished, it isn't a crack and doesn't get into the knurling, the woodwork has typical wear on it but have tried to get some decent pictures for you.

    What you have is a trap gun, not skeet - I was thinking that was the case earlier due to stock shape

    Chokes confirm it
    + is full choke
    +- which is Mod

    To be honest, the timberwork isnt in a good condition, and the bluing being work off the safety etc makes it a resto job really, or suitable for someone looking for a set of barrels for a gun of the same era.

    I'm the later now due to choking - would make a set of sporting barrels for the Mrs gun out of it

    Yeah sorry I had no idea there was even a difference between skeet and trap shooting. Shot guns aren't really my thing.
