I've been asked by a friend to see if I could find out any history (where the shotgun was made and what year and a possible current value). This shotgun is in excellent condition and is a 16 gauge pump Browning that says Ranger on the trigger housing and behind that a horse's head with a man sitting behind the head. Serial number is 4910

Also a box of 16 Gauge shells with paper hulls. on the brass is "sears" on the box says sold only by montgomery wards (the box is red and white) 25 to a box but there are only 23 left so it's 2 short.

Thank you for any assistance. :)

I had some things to add and some corrections:

It actually says Browning patent then under that 16 gauge proof tested

at the bottom of the ejector reads: C4916 with another 4 under the C4

where the barrel fastens to the ejector has a 5 with a circle around it and underneath says full

the shell box says redhead (in red) reliance (in green) shotshells 16 gauge

redhead exclusive with montgomery ward

thanks

Odds are it's a Stevens 620. It was designed by John Browning notice the "humpback" on the reciever?

It was made from 1927 - 1953 but I do not know what years Stevens contracted with Sears to make it.

According to the Bluebook the values are as follows'
Grading 100% 98% 95% 90% 80% 70% 60%
$275 $240 $215 $180 $160 $135 $100

Thank you for your reply. Yes it has the humback as you mentioned. Anywhere you can direct me that I may read up on this shotgun?

Also any value to these old shotgun shells?

Thanks in advance

depending on the condition of the box, since that is worth more than the shells. if it isnt all frayed up and since your only 2 shells short. you might get $15 to $20?

I don't know of any place that ould really have a bunch of info. You could go to Walmart and grab a copy o the Gun Traders Guide. There's 3-4 lines in there about it.
