NO! The 1187 barrel was for remington shotguns,the auto-5 shotgun is a browning shotgun.
This gun was made in 1929. The barrel address should say: BROWNING ARMS Co OGDEN UTAH.
Please identify the model. Looks like it could be an Auto5 made in 1948.
Go to Browning.com, click on customer service and look at an Auto-5 manual.
Providing it is a Auto5 which wasnt noted, it would have been made in 1929
See what they are selling for at Gunsamerica. http://www.gunsamerica.com/ That should give you a pretty good idea.
Need More information about model. If it is an auto5 than 1950.
This is a mixed question. Which gun do you have? An Auto-5 Light twelve, is not a pump shotgun, it is a semi-automatic. Since 1979 is before the Browning Pump Model BPS was introduced, It is assumed you do have an A5. Value depends on condition. Typically with average use, these guns sell in the range of $500-$750 depending on condition. Mint in the box will go $1000+, but remember that this model has a fixed choke in 1979 and won't bring as much as the later Janaese made Auto-5's. The nickel plating you mention is not Browning factory finished. Browning never plated an auto5. You could have a silver receiver that was custom engraved, but it wouldn't be plated. If someone actually did nickel plate the gun, it could decrease value.
