Gun value

I have a book of gun values but it is a little old and oddly I can't find it. Was wondering if anybody can help me out. I am bartering for a Ruger Red Label 12Ga over and under shotgun. I believe it is a pre '93 because it has the short chokes. It is not in new shape but the wood is not dinged and there is a couple small rust spots that I'm sure can be removed. I would say of a rateing of poor, good, very good, and new I would say it is good - very good. Any thoughts on a fair price for todays values?

Well, I'm trading labor for it. He is remodeling a house that his son and friends are renting for school and as a investment for when the housing market bounces back. I am finishing taping (also helped Sheetrock) the basement which is a bath, one bedroom and a small living room. We have already talked about that I will do it for the shotgun or a different one if I don't like the Ruger. I just want to put a number on it for reference. I was thinking it is about $1200 so I'm not far off.

My son has one about that age, maybe a couple years newer, and I was thinking he paid about $1,000 new. He loves it, but like most of us doesn't get to use it as much as he would like.
