    Good Morning boys,
    Looking for a price on a '69 Browning Lightning O/U 12g. 98%, only wear is couple of slide marks from the pump action. Come with the original case, also mint. No manual though. :(
    Absolutely no other marks.

    Thank you tireman, she didn't.
    The forearm slides forward to assemble. Also know it has a Broadway rail.
    What would be a good/fair asking price?

    The current Blue Book of Gun Values lists your 98% Lightning OU at $1775, and you can add another $150 if the case is made by Browning. Incidentally, in any other chambering the value increases by two to four times as much.

    Thanks, my husband figured about $2,000. Wish I had the money for it.

    I just looked at the photos again and noticed it has a rubber recoil pad. It may not be factory original and could have been added after purchase. Check to see if the pad has the Browning name. If not, it is aftermarket and will lower the value significantly.
