I recently acquired a Browning BPS Grade III in 12 ga. with a 28" barrel with Inv. Plus chokes.
It has a silver engraved receiver with ducks and pheasants and a gold trigger. It has oil finished grade III wood. It is as new except for a few storage scratches on the top of the receiver.
My Blue Book doesn`t list this model.
Does anyone know the values of this gun?

Thanks, Dennis

Thanks for the heads up.
Any one else have a high grade BPS?
Or know the book values.

I can't give you a book value but, I recently bought one and this is what I have found out about them since. According to the research done by my local Browning dealer, that gun was the 2004 SHOT show special. It was built to order only and the MSRP was $769. The one I bought was NIB and I paid $725 shipping included. No bargain, but a fair price given it was unfired, in the box and the few that are out there. Nice gun with nice wood and engraving.

Greg

Greg,

I really appreciate you taking the time for your reply.
I`ve searced the web and the only one I could find for sale is this one at Bedlans.

http://www.bedlans.com/Browning%20Pump.htm

The price seems inflated.
What do you think?

Thanks again.
Regards, Dennis

I would think this is a 150-200 dollar gun or less with the description of scratched-

Is there some immediate collectors value on those models?

"GENE THE APPRAISER" is BACK, LOL!!!!

Gene, this kick in the lowballs was not quite as offensive as back in your heydey, but it was still delightfully preposterous! Welcome back!

Oh man, I've got a little coffee coming out of my nostrils.

I was just asking- a scratched up browning bottom eject gun that is no longer made--

So these are collectors?

Well........Geez, I guess then an Ithaca Dollar grade must be worth about 3-400 since it's no longer made?
