Hey guys, I’m new to this website and forum. But I have been looking online recently for a Redletter 37 28ga and I came across this one. It looks alright, I got a few questions on it??? Does the 28ga make it more expensive? I’m trying to get it at a reasonable price… I found it here at a local auction service called RES Auctions. I was able to take a peek at it in person and it looked good, I’m just not sure how much I should bid up to. Any help would be appreciated!

I have no idea what the gun is actually worth, but due to the much smaller quantity that were manufactured, the 28-ga guns do sell for considerably more $$$ than the common 12 and 16 gauge guns.

You’ll ALWAYS pay more for any model 28 g.  My wild guess would be twice the price of a 12 g.  I’d love to have one myself.

Yeah, 28 gauges are cool.  I’ve always wanted a vintage single-shot in 28 gauge.  A variety of vintage single-shots would have fit the bill, but an early Winchester M37 would be cool.

I like the 37 and would love to have a 28 gauge but I’m afraid I would cry every time I bought ammo for it. I generally buy at least a flat when buying shotgun shells (I have an almost insatiable clay bird habit) and I’m pretty sure a flat of decent 28 gauge shells passed the $200 mark awhile back.

Thank you everyone for the information, and the welcome. The 28ga ended up going for a crazy amount of money that I could not keep up with. However I will keep my eye out for some other goodies.
