Question. Sorry I don't have pictures. This is in my fathers immediate care and he won't allow such things.

What I know is its wood stocked, marked "12 magnum" and made in Belgium along with various marks. The gun isperfect except for a dent on the barrel, about two inches from the muzzle.

I know pictures help but what is the going value on a Belgium made 12 mag A5? It was my grandfathers before my father was born, so it's before 52. Lets say condition is 75-80% to be safe.

If I can get more info I will try. Thanks y'all!

It all depends on the condition of course, and the eye of the buyer. I've seen some Belgium made magnum from $650 to $1250

It shoots 3 inch shells. The above price estimate is fairly accurate.

Perfect - except for a dented barrel. That's like the virgin with only 3 kids. That is not a trivial issue.

Not a dent sorry. A scratch.

Sorry so long getting back. It's a 1975 year, we took to an lgs, has a 30" barrel, not sure of the grips and it has a butt. No recoil pad that I recall.

Lgs said due to the 12 mag chambering, and 30" barrel less people would be interested in it. Beautiful gun they said and placed a value of $550-$600.
