    I have an old 1960's Browning Auto-5 12ga. Magnum and would like to know an estimated value if anyone would be kind enough to help me put a dollar amount on it. With the bad economy I'd prefer not to use auction value since people are desperate to sell these days. Blue book value would be nice. (I don't have a book) Anyways, It's in amazing condition with only minor handling marks on the stock. The wood is a beautiful tiger stripe and I have never seen another Auto-5 with a stock like it. I also have another barrel for this gun. I believe one is 28 and the other is 32 inches. I cannot remember. The blueing is very nice too! I don't believe it's been fired much. Here's a picture...

    $600-$800
    There are common versions that are worth more and rare models that are worth less.

    What is the serial number range? That will help.

    That 6V serial number has me totally confused.

    The wood looks awesome, you should take some close-up pics of the markings.

    I wiped off the last two number with Photoshop. I believe the V represents the Magnum Model and the 6 indicates it was made in 1966. I could be wrong. I know these things are a dime a dozen. But I like mine because the stock outshines most Auto-5's I have seen. :)
