    Hmmmmm.....montreal, USA? Where's that?????? :D

    My Blue Book says that the Challenger II was made in Salt Lake City, UT from 1976 to 1982.

    Values listed are:

    98% - $180
    95% - $170
    90% - $145
    80% - $135

    Are you sure that serial number is correct? Those two letters don't jibe with this: http://www.browning.com/services/dategun/detail.asp?id=31

    The serial number is N0, not No which makes it 1979. I always thought it was Morgan, UT, not SLC!

    these are very well made guns, and very well finished...

    i think they are a bit undervalued...

    if you can buy one for BLUE BOOK valus i encourage you to do so...

    but if its a 90% or better gun i personaly think that a value of $225.00 should be applied...

    i never have undertood the BB value on this one.

    best regards, mike.
