    Looks like a type 2. You can look up date of manufacture here:

    From what I got from that website its a Type 1 Made in 1977 with the RR in the serial number. Does that make this thing a hunk of junk or what?

    Thanks,

    Jack

    $650 - $800, but prices are regionally driven. Only drawback is lack of interchangeable chokes.

    I think replacement parts are scarce for type 1's but so what. As a hunting gun it will probably last forever anyway.

    That would be a great pheasant gun. A lot of life in that one.

    Buy it, it looks hardley used. Nothing on there that can't be had or found if need be. It's a Browning it will last a lifetime. That fixed choke configuration is great. If it's rated for steel shot that even better.

    He wants to trade me a $400.00 scope and $500.00 cash. Thats putting a lot of money into a $650.00 gun.

    Jack, Blue book prices on your gun are l00% is $750, 98% is $675, 95% is $575, and 90% is $525. A quick look and I would think your looking at a 98% gun. I would not buy over the 95% price in this market w/ fixed chokes and short barrels. It is a browning and will last you a lifetime. How bad do you want it is the key? Good Luck and Break-em all. Jeff

    Jeff,

    Thanks thats exactly what I was looking for. I wouldn't mind having the gun I just can't see paying his asking price for it.

    Thanks again,

    Jack

    Short ones don't sell good around here.

    650-800 is a good estimate.
