1929 Browning A5 value or other info?
This is being offered to me in the neighborhood of $500. I really don't know much about them and I would only be interested as a collector item, not as regular shooter though I might shoot it sparingly once in a great while.
What I'd like to know is what the gun is truly worth and what are some opinions of it, for example, is it a good investment and could I easily get back what I invested later if I wanted to by something else? I'm not looking for profit but I like to be sure I'm not making bad choices either!
I appreciate any comments war stories!
Oh and it's a 16 gauge.
Here is the owners description:
This Browning was made in the 1920's, and still shoots like a dream today. Most of the bluing on the frame is gone, in it's place is a beautiful patina. The bluing is intact and shining on the barrel, and there isn't a single spot of rust on the entire scattergun.
It has been modified by Browning to shoot the 2 3/4" shells of today, and it shoots them damn well.
It has a rough stock, with checkering, and the prince of wales grip.
All numbers are matching, on everything from the forend, stock, internals, frame, and even down to the screws.
