    Here are some pictures. Let me know if I can provide any additional information. This is a 1955 26" model with a full vent rib and improved cylinder barrel. It is in good condition. What should I ask for it?

    If I were interested in buying it, I might go as high as $800. Someone else might go higher.

    Hard to tell. Depends if someone really wants it. Not a lot of people spending money on the old A5’s anymore unless it’s a collector. I see them in the 700 range. Just bought a light 12 for 400. It’s about same condition. The thing that will hurt you is that 16 Gauge shells are crazy expensive. Your best bet is to sell to someone that already knows about the A5’s and loves them, such as myself. The positive is that it’s a sweet sixteen. There are parts available still, but getting harder to find. Browning don’t support anymore. Don’t have parts and don’t wanna work on them. Sad in my opinion but true.

    I don’t have one in my collection yet, so I might be interested as well.
