I have a friend that is selling a Belgium A5, its clearly a shooter. Vent rib 28 inch barrel, 3 inch serial number is 70V7XXXX. Wanted to know what a fair price range might be? And I know it's condition dependent. Any assistance would be appreciated. Gun broker doesn’t have many and none have bids. Thanks

I bought one last summer. 1970s gun, Vent rib, full choke in reasonable shape with a replaced forearm for $600. I don't know if that helps or not. It was worth that much to me for a shooter.

$800-900 is about right for 80/90% according to The Blue Book for Belgian guns imported with vent rib. Some people put a premium on these guns. The Miroku (Japanese) guns are worth much less.

This might be true, but it makes no sense. Only the Miroku guns are approved for steel shot. What’s the point of owning a Magnum Twelve if you can’t hunt with it?

Like I said above. Some people and the Blue Book put a premium on the guns made in Belgium. The Japanese gun is about $100 less value in good condition in the book. The gun would make a good turkey gun or deer gun with buckshot.
