    I just got a Savage 745 and was wondering about the value. It is from the 50s.12 ga 2 3/4. I was also wondering about the value of my Browning Auto five (pre ww2 12 ga). The savage also has a poly choke on it.

    What other info do you need? There is almost zero surface rust, but it has a cracked forearm.

    Shotguns are hard to sell. You would have to hang on to that Savage for awhile to get $250(maybe a long time).
    The Browning value was hurt alot by the addition of that polychoke(and the forearm crack).

    Definitely not the best. Pretty worn off on the receiver, but still pretty good on the barrel.

    Year-all I can tell from Browning's website and the serial # is that it was pre ww2.
    28" barrel
    no pad installed
    no rib
    I think it is an improved cylinder

    I'm no expert but I would say in the 5-600 dollar range

    That is about right. One just sold on Gunbroker very similar to yours (except it had a rib) for 549
