Default Winchester 91 over under - anyone know about them?

I have been offered decent money for this shotgun, but am not sure if it is right. It's not fancy but great condition, and shoots like a rifle.

I can text pics or upload tomorrow, just trying to figure out what to ask.

From what I remember about the Winchester 91 I had, was that it was built in Spain for the European market.
The guy I got mine from brought it back from Germany when he was stationed at Lars.
it had a weird rear trigger set up that would fire both the top and the bottom barrels instead of using the double triggers ( which it had!)
I sold mine for $500 and it was in pretty nice shape.

Thanks Dave.
I was offered more than twice that, guess I will let it go.
How long ago did you sell yours?
This one has no trigger issues

I sold mine about 10 years ago, the trigger was not defective BTW, it was designed that way! first pull was the bottom IIRC, and the second pull was form the top.
Parts were unavailable soo I had a tool and die buddy repair the latch for the forend, then sold it.

I've had mine for several years. It has a single trigger with inertia reset. It's been a darn fine shotgun.

Doesn't get a huge amount of use, but goes bang every time. If you can get a grand for yours, yeah, I'd take it.
