WTB: Browning A-Bolt rifled shotgun

I want to buy a Browning A-Bolt 12 gauge shotgun with rifled barrel. Either the Stalker model with synthetic stock or wood stock model. Please contact me if you know of one for sale at a reasonable price.

Re: WTB: Browning A-Bolt rifled shotgun

I bought two of these new when they first came out for less than $500.00. I sold one to a friend at that price.
I've been keeping tabs on the going price on GunBroker and the other sites, and they're out of sight. Usually sell between $2,000 and $2,300 for a rifled barrel mint piece.
Good luck in your search.

OK, I had a Black synthetic A-bolt 12 ga rifles slug gun when I lived in Iowa. I gave it to a friend when I moved. Is this what you are refering to and why would they be so high now?? :confused:

Re: WTB: Browning A-Bolt rifled shotgun

Funny but in a side by side accuracy report on slug guns the Browning fell behind the Marlin and Savage 12 ga. bolt guns.

The Browning has it all over the others when it comes to fit, finish & pride of ownership but if you just want to kill deer then I'd think twice before paying huge sums of money for a second hand Browning. High dollars do not always get you performance. But .............. the Browning sure would be nice to own.

I lived in Iowa most of my life and had to hunt with a shotgun. I hated it until I got the a-bolt. It would put winchester 3" supreme sabots back in the box out to 160 yards.

Re: WTB: Browning A-Bolt rifled shotgun

For cheap, deadly accurate deer killers, the H&R single shot slug guns are hard to beat. My 12 gauge with shoot 3 shot clover leafs at 100 yards with Remington copper solids. My son's 20 gauge does the same with Lightfield Hybrids. Due to the heavy barrels, recoil is not bad at all.

Definitely not a Browning, but possibly a good option for you.
