I'm probably asking the impossible here...
My friend has a Browning shotgun that he purchased from new in the early 80's. It has been very well kept, in fact barely shot over the years and remains in superb condition given its age. Said friend is willing to sell the gun, I'm willing to buy. We got to speaking about price and that's where we hit a problem:-
He has forgotten what model it is. And it doesn't give a model number anywhere in the gun!? This makes it difficult to put a resale price on it.
We have tried entering the serial number on several sites to try and find out some info on it. All to no avail.
So can anyone help?
This 12G shotgun is an early 80s Browning over/under. 28in fixed choke barrels with vented rib, 2&3/4 in chambers. The receiver has no scrolling. Single trigger. It has safety thumbpiece and barrel select combined which is positioned under the opening lever. The forend is not removable, instead it has a lever that lets it slide forward about half inch to allow for barrel removal. The serial number on the receiver ends in S4 but on the barrels it ends in S74. It feels quite a light gun!
Can anyone help, or have I just described every over/under shotgun from that era?
Cheers in advance!
