It really depends on the rarity of the gun, but in general serious collectors (the ones who pay big bucks) would prefer a gun with 10% of the original finish remaining over one that has been reblued if all other factors are equal. A new stock, if matched to the overall appearance of the gun will be marginally acceptable, particularly on a very rare piece, but replacement with an original piece would be preferable. Minor repairs that were made during the period of use will not have much effect on the value if they were done correctly.

Value is too difficult to be accurate without seeing the gun. Condition which includes the amount of original finish and original configuration will determine value. Guns with poly-chokes, compensators and recoil pads (other than Mag 12's) will reduce value. Near mint guns and original box will command an extra premium. Recommend taking it to a gun shop for appraisal.

What would be the vintage and value of a Browning Sweet 16 serial A 2109?

This is not a Sweet 16. Sweet 16's are lightweight 16ga Belgian guns. This is what is called an American Browning. These guns were produced by Remington in the US (New York) for Browning after Belgium was overun by the Germans in WWII. The guns were made using Remingtons model 11 equipment. A few modifications were made to incorporate more of the Browning features and were all stamped Browning Arms Co. St. Louis Mo. Your gun sn: A2409 was made and shipped to Browning in 1940. Value is too difficult to be accurate without seeing the gun. Condition which includes the amount of original finish and original configuration will determine value. Auto 5's with poly-chokes, compensators and recoil pads (other than Mag 12's) will reduce value. A rough ball park figure would be $250-$500 range for this gun. Near mint guns and original box will command an extra premium. Recommend taking it to a gun shop for appraisal.
