Hi everyone, nice looking forum here. I just found out from my grandmother that there is a Pre-war Belgium made Browning shotgun that I am going to recive shortly. This is all I know about it:

16ga (not sweet 16)
was 2 1/2 in. chamber converted to 2 3/4 in chamber.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what it would be worth like this and what would it have been worth not rechamberd. I'm just happy to have it, I would rather have it 2/34 I think don't ya'll?

Thanks,

here's the values the Bluebook attaches to it (assuming it's grade one)
Grading 100% 98% 95% 90% 80% 70% 60%
Grade 1 $675 $575 $475 $375 $325 $285 $250
Solid matte rib $750 $675 $575 $475 $375 $325 $285
With vent. rib $825 $725 $650 $575 $465 $375 $325

The Bluebook says the 2 9/16th chamber is less desirable than the 2 3/4ths and actually there is no deduction for being converted.
