i am befuddled and could use some help i have a very good condition browning bar .22 and from what info i can find they were made from 1977 to 1985 .i have searched alot of gun selling sites to try to figure what this is worth for insurance purposes but i can only find one for sale and its mint condition and is going for 320 that seems a little high to me and mines not mint any ideas of value thanks
You can date it by going to the Browning/Winchester website and searching for your serial number. Once you know the year of production, you can search for similar Browning .22s on GunBroker and that will help you with the pricing. Or the Blue Book of Gun Values, but I think you'll have to pay for that.
I have the same rifle you're talking about and mine was produced in 1952, so your info is a little bit off.
thank you lon just left the browning site this is what i found browning bar .22 semiauto 15 shot tubular magazine,was produced from 1977 to 1985 in two grades only grade 1 and grade 2,1982 was the year they started the lightweight recievers,mine is a 1977 grade1 awesome its so accurate i have never got rid of it it was my first gun, with iron sites at 100 yds from sand bags it hits the 5in black on the target all day and i am by no means an awesome shot,now if i can just give a dollar value to the insurance company ill be all set,oh and i like your new avitar lon
