Customer Question
I have a Browning A5...
I have a Browning A5 Light Gold Trigger s/n 13171. It was my Dads gun and it’s been sitting around for some time. The wood is in good condition but the receiver is pitted. You can still see the engraving but it needs some work. Any thoughts on what it might be worth? I would also be interested in getting a name of someone who could recondition it if have anything. Thank you, ***** *****
