I have an offer to buy this particular gun. What I’m
Not good at is the condition grading. From my limited knowledge I believe this is a 1963 Belgium light 12. But I don’t believe the butt pad is original. How much does this hurt the value. It’s 26” vent rib but I’m not sure of the choke of the barrel. Is the gun worth $800?

I wouldn’t pay $800 for it.

The recoil pad doesn’t look original to the stock, and the stock doesn’t look original to the gun. That pattern of checkering was used on early guns and again on the Japanese made. And the finish is worn.

I’d say $400-$600.

You will find better examples for sale on Gunbroker for $800. I picked up a 1955 lt.12 for $860 incl shippingand ffl fees. It looked as new. Only thing missing was the box. Unless this gun has sentimental value, you can do better with a little patience. I have a friend that loves A5's in 12 gauge so I didn't get to keep it very long. Good luck, Ken.

With pitting, corrosion, and significant blue wear it is worth only 'shooting value.'
