    Well I need to drop the subject about trading up my A5 Browning to my Dentest. I went around to the bigest gun shops and they all said the same thing...The stock was shortened by some real good gunsmith so there was one thing wrong and the barrel was to have a vent rib this one does not, and there was a bead for a front sight, so the guy who had the shotgun had some work done and had changes made..the most I could get was $315.00..
    I had to tell my friend who is also my Dentest that if I had made this trade (or attempted) I would be a lier and a crook because his rifle was worth a helova lot more.
    so there goes that plan shot to hell.
    So we may talk some cash, till then the subject is mute.
    KC.

    There ya' are. Trying to estimate value from afar never works. Any appraisal needs to be with item in hand.
