    I've got a Browning 12 gauge auto that I'm thinking of selling because I never use it. I'd like to get some idea what it's worth since I'm thinking of taking it to a local gun store to sell for me on consignment.

    Here is a description:

    Made in Belgium by FN, Assembled in Portugal.
    28" Barrel with NO vent rib.
    Choked ** (Modified), but shoots an IM pattern.

    The metal is in excellent condition with only two small dings on the underneath side of the trigger assembly near the safety.

    The wood is in very good conditon with only two scratches (not large or deep) and a few small handling marks.

    It has a hard plastic butt plate on it that says "Browning Automatic" and "FN" in the center of the plate.

    I purchased the gun in about 1985 in used but almost new condition. I used it perhaps 8 or 10 times for grouse hunting or crow shooting. I've also used it to shoot perhaps 2 rounds of trap and 1 round of sporting clays. I've put about 300 to 400 shells total through it since I've owned it. It works perfectly, even with some mild reloads that I shot a few years ago.

    Any idea what this gun is worth?

    It is a very good gun. Browning stopped making them because they were expensive to produce. HMB

    MIA,

    Thanks. Do you mind if I ask how you determined its approximate worth? Did you buy it recently?

    Thanks to everyone for your comments. I guess I'll probably just keep the gun even though I don't use it. To me, it seems like too nice a gun to sell for $350.

    I don't recall it ever jamming or having a problem of any kind. It has been 100% reliable with any loads I've shot through it. In addition, the recoil with this gun is almost non-existent, even when shooting the 1 1/4 ounce hunting loads with no recoil pad.

    Thanks again for the comments.

    If you are going to keep the gun check out Jeffs Outfitters and Mid West Shooters Supply. They have barrels, stocks and parts at very low prices. HMB

    Thanks, HMB. I don't really need any parts now, but it's good to know where to find them in case I do.
