    IMG_0779.JPG IMG_0780.JPG IMG_0782.JPG IMG_0784.JPG My father recently passed away and one of the guns in his possession was this browning twenty made in Belgium. The gun is in nice condition minus a couple scuffs on the barrel. I'm trying to determine the value, I've searched many forums and keep getting mixed results. The serial number starts with 7Z so I know this tells me it was the 1967 light twenty. I am having a hard time determining if the barrel is vented , as I know this increases the value. Any help would be appreciated.

    Nice Shotgun from what i can see of it. Yes it does have a vent rib barrel. Can't help you with a value though. Can you get pics of the Stock? both sides. Usually Lt 20s bring higher prices than 12s. They are less common. Hopefully someone will be able to help you with it's value.

    Thank you. I'm not one to just sell things for cash, I'd rather hold on to it if it'd be worth it. Here are stock photos there are a few minor scratches that don't really show up in the photos. IMG_0786.JPG IMG_0787.JPG

    If it were mine and it was my fathers I would keep it and hand it down. A person does not see these shotguns every day. I would love to use that shotgun over a setting dog on a bird or two. Keep it and forget ABOUT HOW MUCH IT IS WORTH.

    Very very nice! Oh yea it's worth holding on to. They are not making anymore Belgium Browning shotguns. And yours being in great shape and also being a light 20 will be worth more than the average A-5.

    Yes will definitely hang on to it :) it is a beautiful gun. My dad had a handful and after doing research this is def the most intriguing. Thanks for the feedback.

    That is one beautiful Browning. Something I would never let go of if it were me.

    One super clean Browning for sure. If you're not already a gun fan this is a good opportunity for you to expand your horizons. If you go to church tomorrow I bet you could find someone to take you to the range.
