Gents...my friend has a 1929 16 ga browning shotty in 95% plus condition and needs to find a good owner. It was her grandfather's. Made in Belgium. The stock looks like it may have been refinished at one point, but I'm not an expert. The blueing looks like it was sold yesterday. What's she worth?

Not my friend, the gun you reprobates...

:biggrin:

She has more. I'll post in a minute.

kinda sad but Sweet 16 Brownings are dead weight.
I wouldn't put $200 towards one these days and You know how I am

I'd move it through Gunjoker and hope for the best

Broke my heart and hers too bastard. If it was a twelve they'd be wantin to convert it to an SA street sweeper.

She's got a browning model 1910 pistol in 50% shape and its old. How are those doing.

a real 1910 or a 1922 ?
Nazi proofs ?
.32 or .380

this all means things

I don't see any Nazi proofs. I think its a legit pre war 1910, not a 1922. Looks identical to this: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/6f/Browning_1910_%286971783833%29.jpg/1200px-Browning_1910_%286971783833%29.jpg

Same cartouche and marks.

That shotty has perfect metal except for the last 1/8 inch of barrel and muzzle.

Have her post it for sale on 16ga.com, if she can get registered there.

This is not a 'Sweet Sixteen' it is a Standard 16, a great old shotgun, but not in the same price range.

Has it been converted to 2 3/4 inch shells ?

I'm not sure. Is there a way to tell without loading a shell in there? If it isn't 2 3/4 what size would it be?

Thanks for the tip!

That pre-war shotgun is somewhat dangerous .. if the safety is in front of the trigger guard it's not really a safety .. :eek:

read-up before you jump ..

It's a 1910 then.
50% is like a $300+ pistol with maybe a bit of a premium for a .380 chambering.

Probably 2 1/2 which was the European standard back in the day.

It would be a 2 9/16 chamber if not converted, many were converted to 2 3/4.

If the forearm has been relieved
slightly to allow the barrel to protrude slightly forward it has most likely been modified.

The safety hazards of a safety in the front of the trigger guard will come as news to millions of Garand and M14 users, as well as to users of Ruger's Mini 14s !:whistling:
