Who are our resident Browning experts ?

Need some assistance for a shooting friend who has a Browning Midas Grade 30" O/U as shown in the pix below. She is trying to determine an estimated value in case she decides to sell it.

Info I have is that the gun is a 1968 model, purchased new by her father. Wood is non-salted. Barrel is choked full on top and improved modified on bottom. Gun has been shot perhaps 100 times and has been in storage most of the time. I have not seen the gun, but am told it is easily a 100% gun.

I'm fairly certain we have a few Browning aficionados here, so I'd appreciate a PM from any of them. If needed, more photos are available.

This is a common gun advertised for sale from $5000 to $10000. What they sell for is rarely disclosed. Most owners get a bit testy if you offend their suggested price. And put them back in the safe. Over time and with patience, it should sell for about $4500. Remember, they are nice guns, but most trapshooters have moved on to higher ribs, drop out triggers, combos, etc. And the "collectors" are all dying off.

$4500 with patience

Still a dream gun...wish I could buy it....32" bbls are nice but if that gun is choked IM-F it's pure death on doubles targets....and is there not a similar gun on here for $8K? They are beautifully built and worth every penny IMHO...but I'm biased as a 33 year Superposed shooter....

There is not a long line of potential buyers for a Broadway rib Midas. There are many for sale with no takers. I would have a hard time passing one up for $4000 or $4500 if I saw it face to face. Jeff sold his at the right time, to the right person. Broadway rib trap guns are the bottom of the barrel for collectors. Sorry.
