    I have a friend that is trying to find the value of a Belgium made Browning Sweet Sixteen.
    I've seen the gun and it has sat in a closet for at least 20 years.
    There are moderate rust spots all over, but it can be salvaged.
    The wood is so-so. The rubber recoil pad is hardened.
    Any idea where I can get info on the value of it?
