Default Mossberg 5500 Deer gun

My fathers friend is selling a Mossberg 5500 with a halo red dot sight and i was wondering what a fair price would be to offer for this gun. I think he said 4 something i was going to give him an offer of 3 and a quarter and was wondering if this was reasonable? Or should i expect higher or can i get it for lower?

I would stay away from the 5500 entirely. It was a model that caused big headaches for Mossberg.  They replaced it with the 9200, which was a better gun, although not trouble free either. 

This one may function perfectly well, but many of them did not.  That hurts resale value considerably, if you ever want to trade it in on another gun.  The dealer may give you virtually nothing for it, knowing the guy he sells it to is likely to bring it back with complaints of problems.

I'd go to gunbroker.com and see what they're going for.  Not all Mossbergs are bad guns so I would get an unbias opinion from there.  I had a 935 slug gun and it was the best deer gun I've ever had.

I love me a Mossberg! Love the 835, and my 935. Betcha it kills anything just as well as your $1000+ shotguns. It only shoots Winchesters too, so i guess i'm just a cheap, but its been deadly towards many, many animals! Winchester slugs, Winchesters field shot, Winchester Clay loads, Winchester steel shot, its ALL GOOD!

Mossbergs, particularly the 835 and 500, are pretty decent guns, especially for the money.  But, the general consensus of opinion has been that the 5500 was a big POS.  It's sort of Mossberg's version of the Winchester 1400, a bucket of potential problems.  You may get one which works perfectly fine, but don't count on it.
