Browning Sweet 16

I purchased a Belgium made Browning Sweet 16 that is in fair condition with the serial number that is S 89684. I would like to know how much this gun could be worth in fair condition, and what year it was made. Can anyone help me?

Sometimes wrong, but never in doubt...

Nice gun. I see some nice ones in the used gunrack at Cabela's in the $500 range. Nicks and scratches , some bluing wear . Well used but intact and functional. There are different grades though and some with checkering , type of barrrel , etc. I have little use for a full choke in that guage, I'd think a more open choke quite desirable if using it for upland hunting. I think the 12 and 20 are probably more sought after. 16 guage shells are a little harder to come by. A Gunbroker search of similar models sold recently would be your best research tool. Hope I was some help. You can't go wrong with a Browning. They are usually a cut above the rest. John Browning is widely acknowledged as the most prolific and successful gun designer ever , anywhere period , end of the story. Remington , Winchester , etc. purchased way too many of his inventions to ever dispute that proposition.

I'll wait for photos ....but I'm thinking ....16ga, fixed choke...."Fair" condition.....would be $ 250 - $ 300 tops ....
