    Howdy,

    I'm trying to help a friend and get some info on the realistic value of a gun he's potentially looking to sell. I don't have pictures at the moment, but here's what it is:

    Browning Superposed
    Mid-Late 1960's (in the process of pulling the serial number and getting specific date)
    Choked: Skeet and Skeet
    Long Tang
    Round Nob
    Original Box
    99%
    26" BBLs

    Any thoughts on what this might be worth?

    Thanks!

    Hard to say without year. Anywhere from $700-1700.

    could be salt wood, we need the year, just give us the S and the last number of the serial #

    I bought a 1963 Superposed Lightning for $1000 a couple of months ago on this forum. It was in near perfect condition. Frank

    RTLK model should not be a salt gun, but the 26" bbls will kill any extra value.

    I'll have the serial number tonight I think.

    Also... I was stupid and forgot to mention that it's a 28 gauge. Sound better?

    If it is really 99% with box it's a solid $1000 + gun up to around $1400 but it will be hard to find a buyer for the 26" tubes.

    I sold Art's a 1962 small frame 28ga. round knob grade one 26" sk x sk two years ago for $3,500, he didn't flinch at the price. This is a person who's business is buying, selling and repairing guns, so I would have to assume he sold it for more than he paid me?

    I was told by Browning, very few Belgium 28ga guns were imported in the sixties, in fact the one I had was not a Browning import; it was thought to be brought in by a serviceman returning home.

    Here's another bit of info for you, when I was discussing my 28ga. with the Browning customer rep., he told me they don't import the 28ga. except on special order from the custom shop. He thought current price for a grade 1 off the top of his head would cost $15,000 + or - a few dollars.

    dead on, that would be for current Belgium B25's...

    we're talking those imported in the late 60's early 70's..

    Big M,
    The Browning rep didn't discern between a B series or a superposed when I asked him if he thought my gun was worth $3,500. His response was a new grade one O/U would come out of the custom shop and would be in the neighborhood of $15,000, so he thought, $3,500 was in the ballpark.

    I sent the gun to Art telling how much I wanted beforehand, he called the day he recieved it and said, I'm sending you a check today. He was so agreeable, he caused me to think the gun could have brought more? But a deals a deal.

    dead on, I missed your posting on the the '62 gun. I was referring to the current B-25's being worth 5 figures. sorry.

    Being a 28 does change things. A date will help. Some folks pay crazy prices for the baby bore Supers. I used to collect Supers.

    A long tang, round knob 28 gauge in high condition is a hot gun, even with 26" skeet choke barrels, the least favored combination for collectors. If it is a first year, 1959 gun, it is super hot.

    Hi everyone. Thanks for the thoughts so far. I'm still trying to get the serial number from my buddy. When I do, I'll post it, hopefully soon.

    Thanks!
