Yes, the Silver is similar and shares many parts with the Winchester SX2/3/4. They have a neutral balance point and swing smoothly. They are not the lightest models but, far from the heaviest. They are well made and reliable. They can go longer periods between cleanings if you want and are pretty easy to break down to clean. They cycle fairly light loads for a 3 1/2" model. It has an over bored barrel which tends to pattern hard, larger shot sizes and load weights better. This gun does not have the speed load or magazine cutoff switch that most other Browning auto loaders have. Like the mentioned SX models. You can cut off the magazine by pushing up slightly on the carrier while pulling the bolt back.
It would not be my first pick for a upland model. It's near the top for a waterfowl model though.

$650.00 sounds like a decent price depending on the condition, type of finish, and what's included with the gun. I like the looks of models with angled off receivers over the more normal rounded ones.
