I have a Browning A5 light 12 gauge that my grandfather recently passed down to me. It is in superb condition, and I am looking for a value. I looked on Brownings website and my serial number (71911) tells me that it was manufactured from 1903-1939. Can anyone tell me what the exact manufacture year was? And what the value is for said gun? Do I have a rare gun? Any help would be appreciated.

There are lots of that model around,I shot one for 23-years,but sold it when the Benelli Super Black eagle came out.In 98% condition,blue book value for a Belgium made gun is $650.00 for a plain
barrel,$925.00 for a vent rib barrel.This depends on the area,where you live and the demand for them.In my area,one in top shelf condition would bring $450.00 max,usually going for around $350.00.
Some people claim to get around $1200.00,but IMHO,that is not realistic.There are lot of new models that have very good options available today,so that is a pricing factor also.

That would be a 1925 model gun. Highly unlikely it would be worth more than $500.00-$700.00.

Thanks for input. Albanygun there is no prefix to the serial number, only 71911 on the bottom of the gun by the loading point. I just wanted to know if I had a rare gun. No intention of selling it.
