Can someone give me some advice on gun value before I committ to a purchase?
I have found two browning 20 ga superposed for sale:
1. 1959 20 ga superposed IC/M 261/2" round knob, long tang,grade 1. The gun is in real nicel condition, metal 95%, wood 95%, action is tight, lever a little right of centre, LOP 141/4" to factory buttplate.
The wood is highly figured and the fit and finish is superb; the only problem is, it is too good. No ser # on stock under the tang. It appears factory as the checkering is exactly like a 12 ga I have. If this not the original wood I would sure appreciate some advice on value before I purcgase it. They're asking $2000. Should I just pass on this as it would not be collectible?
2. 1964 20 ga. superposed, cased two barrel set S/S and F/M
261/2" and 28", round knob long tang. Gun is in real nice condition also. metal 95% and wood 95%. action is tight, lever a little right of centre. The only problem is LOP 14" to a non Browning Pad. I could install a browning Pad but I think factory LOP is 141/4" to buttplate or Factory pad. They're asking $3200. I would sure appreciate some advice on this one too.
