    No idea how to answer your question but it's a pretty gun, how does it shoot?

    I don't know what it's worth at this time, but I bought one almost identical to the one you have (but with an extra barrel) in 1982 for 350.00. At that time the price was considered very good as there weren't as many 20 gauges out there. I wouldn't sell it now for 700.00 as it has been a very good and reliable gun.

    The 'Z' identifies the model as an Auto-5 Light Twenty.
