Thanks everyone, I'll chase down some of those options. Part of my problem is that I live in Alaska so my Profesional options of people to check them out are extremely limited. They are all in 100% condition and have never been removed from the original boxes to be handled. They weren't sold as a set they just all have sequential serial numbers and there are a few sets of the field grade and high grade together.

My grandfather gave them to me about 15 years ago. He bought them as an investment new from the gun store. They are all NIB condition the only one that looks like it has been handled is the .348 it has a tag from the gun store and the original packaging oil has been removed. It must have been on display at the gun shop.

Here's a few pics of the nicer ones for anyone interested!

tich_d999,I'm looking at an older 2008 gun values book,and most of these firearms were Limited Edition sets sold by Browning in 1986. That's why the serial numbers are all the same prefix,they were all mfg in 1986.
The values listed in my book are probably a little low from the current values,but I'll list them for you.

Model 71 - High grade 24" barrel,1 of 3000 made = $1000

Model 42 shotguns -Grade 1 = $700 and Grade 5 = $1150

Model 12 20ga & 28ga shotguns - Grade 1 = $725 ea, only 7000 made in each caliber. Grade 5 = $1300 each,only 5000 were made.

Model 65 - Grade 1 = $600 only 3500 were made. Grade 5 = $900 only 1500 were made

Model 53 - $725 only 5000 were made

Model 1886 Carbine- Grade 1 = $850 Grade 5 = $1200

Model 52 - $500 only 5000 were made.

I hope this will give you an idea of what you have.

Absolutely gorgeous firearms!!!!!

Personally I would hunt with those guns. They're just too fine of firearms to sit on a shelf!!!! But I understand that if they were bought as an investment that it might be time to cash them in. I'm guessing selling them as a set on gun broker is going to be your best bet? But that is just a guess.

Not to offend but the prices quoted above are very low
Example a fired model 52 will bring 750 easy
The model 71 is worth $2000 alone without considering the an
For a collection as such go to an expert like
http://www.jaquas.com
Or one of the auction houses that specializes in firearms

I just checked previous sales on gunbroker.
The highest price bid on a high grade model 71 was $1975.
A 13 rifle set was offered at $17,900 and had no bids.
A high grade 218 bee was offered at $1200 which received no bids.
A model 42 grade I received one bid of $850
A matched set of models 42's (grade 1 and grade 5) was bid up to $2000
Highest bid on a model 53 deluxe was $881
Highest bid on a high grade 1886 was $2225
This will give you some idea. You are the one who sets the price on your guns.
