look on the gun itself to see if it is actually designated a sweet 16. if so it's worth a small premium.
as for value.... hiy ********* and gunsamerica / Auction arms..
i've bought auto 5 cloes from 100-200$ and real a5's from 150 - 400 depending on what they were and what condition.
i actually think my fav are 2 a5 'clones' store branded models..not wards or sears. but um.. western something maybee... ( westerfield? er.. something) I like them as much as my 12g a5's especially since they onlty cost 100-120$
good old double recoil shotguns.
I collect a few of the variants. rem 11/12 the widowmaker.. etc. even have an old FN model in an odd chambering..
for a while, the pawn shops and gun shows were unlaoding a5 and clones like crazy. I must have got a dozen of them a few years ago.. mostly paying cheap money around 100-120$ except for a couple nice nice belgium ones... might have a jap bb'ld one as well... can't remember..
