Default whatzitfit?

hey y'all
my Bro-in-law is going thru his deceased Dad's safe and they're divvying up some stuff. He found a Browning shotgun barrel. Can you help me identify what it fits and relative value? good blueing, etc. Here's what he told me he found on it: Belgium/ */ 12-75/1KG/48.4/ special steel 3"/VL94984/12 guage.

he also ended up with a Beretta automatic shotgum model "M"/A303-cal20/N08565E/20g./3" mag/28" vent rib/......probably 90% condition, Any ball park what it's worth??

Thanks................. Bob

The Beretta A-303 is worth anywhere between $400-600. They weren't the best autoloaders made by Beretta. Not sure about the Browning barrel

I took the liberty of rip/pasting this to "The Firing Line"...
http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=456986
And got this...
Quote:
It appears that the barrel is:
for an A-5 12gaMAG, noted as 3" chamber [ 12-75, the 75 is the metric chamber length, full choke [single "*"], the rest is the proof loads, the "VL number MAYBE a reciever SN if it was issued as a two=barrel set., [unsure on this]

This will not fit the Standard A-5 as the mag ring on barrel is farther forward compared to a standard A-5 barrel.

Hope this helps.
And I got a PM asking if the barrel has a price...

Hope either helps you out...
Brent

Default thanks

That does help and I'll see if my B-I-Law wants to sell it. He doesn't have the receiver for it anyway. I do, but mine is good. What would be a fair price???

They suit me substantially more than i need. I know "better" guns are better guns. To me a "fine gentleman's arm" would be a field grade walnut Mossberg 930.
I didn't mean anything by it except I know that most barrels ain't $90-120 like a mossberg.
