If like new condition Id guess 1200-1800 depending barrel length choke and the buyer.Hello OSA,
A good friend of mine's grandad passed away last week and in his closet he found an old Browning A5 that was purchased from Sears way back in the early 80s, maybe the 70s. It's in perfect condition and we're about 99% sure it was never fired. My friend's grandad was a bit of a hoarder and always bought stuff when it went on sale. I have no idea how much this would be worth as I have very limited knowledge of these special edition shotguns and how rare / common they are.
Could I trouble you experts to weigh in on its value? My friend isn't a gun person so if it's not worth all that much, I'll just offer to buy it from him to keep as a memento (his grandad was like a second grandad to me) but if it's worth more, I'll advise him to find a buyer. Thanks so much for any help you can offer.
You should have called the police cuz you got robbed on that trade. A 1957 Browning Sweet 16 in the condition your saying buys 3 or 4 Savage heavy barrel 308 rifles a few years ago or today. Oh let me guess your MacGyver barrel cutting instincts took over and you would have rather cut on the Savage.That one in the picture was made in 1973
I had one that was that nice and was from 1957 and a 16 gauge Sweet 16.
I took it to Big Boys and traded even up for a Savage heavy barrel 308 with 24" barrel and accutrigger.
That was a few years ago and i would bet you could do the same today
