    What is fair value of Browning model B325 grade 5. The shotgun has invector plus chokes, original case, 32" barrels. I would say it is in 95% condition.

    I had a 325 years ago and am pretty sure it had regular invector chokes. My memory is pretty hazy but it was a "European" model so perhaps that was why. Those were nice guns with slim barrels and fast to the target.

    I have a 325 grade 3, 30 inch, with invector chokes, in new condition. I paid $1,400 for it a year ago and have been offered a couple hundred more several times. It has a wide rib for sporting clays. It shoots better than most of my guns.


    Hope that helps,

    John

    Wasn't the B version made in Japan and shipped to Belgium to be hand fitted and assembled?

    Statement taken from another website:

    The 325 was basically made for the European market by Miroku of japan and has barrels made by the chopper lump method of construction. The newer Brownings such as the B425 and B525 have barrels made by the monobloc method. Traditionalists say the chopper lump barrels are stronger and the reason Miroku went the way of making barrels usingthe monobloc method is money - cheaper to make. Apart from some minor cosmetic differences the guns are the same and feel the same when you handle them.

    There are some Grade II's for sale on Gunbroker/Guns International/GunsAmerica going for around $1200. Grade V is harder to find a comparison on. Might check a local book store for a Blue Book but they are sometimes pretty far off the going rate. Nice shotgun but they didn't make it very long before comming out with the 425.

    They feel far from the same. The Euro guns had traditional 12ga bore diameters with slim barrels. The American models were .740 over-bore jobs that were much heavier in the front end. Picture a pig on a snow shovel....

    They are great to deal with. Bought my Euro 325 from Charles and Margaret Schneible and he handled the importation of several Perazzis that I bought from Andrew Litt.

    I still have 2ea B325 32" euro style guns that I bought in the early 90's. In my opinion the best "B" type gun made by Browning. Love those light barrels!!! I also have a 30" 20ga B425 from that era with the fixed choke chopper lump barrels. Again my choice over the mono blocked barrel guns. Unfortunately the current market does not reflect the real value of these guns. A grade 5 is probably in the high $1k to low $2k range at best!
