I need the model number of the Browning to give you the value.
The best way to sell your gun is to list it on AuctionArms.com or Gunbroker.com. On both sites you have complete control of the auction. You set the starting price, bid increments, reserve price if you want one, amount charged for shipping, type of payment accepted, etc. You can include up to 10 pictures with each auction. The buyer supplies you with an FFL of the dealer they want it shipped to and must go through a background check when they pick it up. The commission rate is around 1% which is extremely low. You receive payment before you ship the gun and the best part is no one comes to your house to look at it. I have very good luck using AuctionArms to sell guns and parts and have never had a problem with them.
I hope this helps you,
Is the Browning an over/under? Is there engraving on it and if there is, what is it?
