Can anyone tell me the approximate value of this shotgun. Stock is very used but metal is rust free. Engravings are good too. I think this is the serial number and am being told this shotgun was made in 1932. Thanks for you help!

I didn't look it up. I'm at work and weapon sites aren't allowed. At least I think this is the serial #?

Yes, that is the serial number to the receiver. The barrel will also have a corresponding serial number. You can verify the date in with a Gun Blue Book or google search. Without more pictures it would be hard to give you a value. However, with the amount of blue remaining and condition of wood it looks to be well used. Does it have a rib on it? Has the barrel been cut or does it have a Cutts or poly-choke installed? Is the forearm cracked? All of these things are negatives when it comes to value. Bottom-line, any functioning Browning sixteen guage is worth at least $500.00. Beyond that I would need to look at it.

Barrel has no rib, nor chokes installed, looks factory. No cracks in wood, just used. Engravings look good, not worn, no rust.
Thanks for the help.

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but does that shotgun have a 2 9/16 inch chamber instead of 2 3/4 being made in 1932?

It was made as a 2 9/16, but a lot of them have been converted

Uh, oh. Does that mean it won't shoot 2 3/4 shells?

If it has been re-chambered from 2 9/16 to 2 3/4 it will. Is the barrel marked? Does the serial number and the barrel match? If I remember correctly it will be marked 60mm for 2 9/16 and 70mm for 2 3/4.

BTW, this is my favorite shotgun, period. I have a few of them. I also love the old Model 11 Remingtons.

I looked up the serial # and it came back to a 1957 regular 16ga. I think.

Where did you look? I have a sweet 16 and light 12 that belonged to my grandfather that I'd be interested in knowing when they were made.
