Default New intrest in old A5

So as I am shooting the breeze with my step father bout his old Auto 5, we get curious and decide to look up its manufacture date. I find out that According to the folks at proof house it was made in 1925 (Serial A19XXX):

Browning A-5 Shotgun

So now here I am asking the same Question many have asked before me; Whats it worth?

Srry its kinda fuzzy, took the pics off of his blackberry

More information please.

I'm assuming that the lack of response to your post is due in part that you did not supply enough information to go off of. There should be a wealth of information on that firearm instead of just the ser. #. Also, better pictures would be nice .. Not asking for much right? (lol)

The value ranges from $750 for a 100% gun down to $200 for a 60% gun.

That is not a 1925 model gun. It would look to be a Remington made Browning made during WWII (1940-1946). The gun pictured is a $200.00 gun possibly $250.00 because it's a 16 gauge. $250.00 would be pushing it.

YoungGun,That shotgun's pretty rough,so it isn't worth too much. Is the barrel stamped St.Louis,MO.If so it is an American Browning,not a Belgium Browning.
Those shotguns were built like tanks and will last forever.I have an early Remington Autoloader (A5) made in 1906,that I still hunt with.
It was in pretty bad shape,so we bead blasted it,and then Parkerized the receiver and barrel.The original stock and forearm were in great shape,and we refinished them,but I put a set of Ramline synthetic stocks on it,so the wood wouldn't get damaged.

I'd say,just refinish it and enjoy it.They don't make guns like that anymore.

1. It IS stamped St. Louis
2. The pics don't help, its in better condition than it shows
3. What does the diff. in the St. Louis and Belgium? (besides the obvious)
4. The finish is ORIGINAL and according to my old man it will STAY that way
Thanks Txhillbilly
