I've owned a few older Brownings. Just because it has the box and original papers, not to mention great condition does not make it NIB. LNIB, like new in box should knock $75.00 to 100.00 off the price.
These guns are very desirable though. I bought a 1980 Steel receiver BLR in .308 a 5 years back. I paid $475.00 for it and the paint was perfect on the mag follower. Not a scratch on the rifle, no box. I had a guy that was coming over to buy my Bushmaster DCM. He offered me $825.00 for the BLR. I gave him a 200 round battle pak of German DAG 7.62x51 w/ it. I took the 19.95 price tag off it 1st! In 5 years, that was what happened to the Browning market. I have a well used A-bolt Gold Medalion in .22WMR that I paid $425.00 for new Many years ago, it is worth $700.00 now.
