What is the value of a new Browning Citori 12 gauge shotgun with serial 15863PX153?
I would like to start first with the serial number.The letters MR in the middle of the serial number indicates that your browning shotgun was made in 2007.With that said,if you have a pump shotgun then you have a browning BPS.If you have a over/under shotgun then you have a browning citori.If you have a semi-auto shotgun then you have a browning gold model.
It's a 1975. In 1969 Browning started using two digits for the date of manufacture which was followed by on of the following codes: H=12 ga. N=20ga. Later the code was changed to J=both gauges This was then followed by the serial number beginning with 00001. Example: 00001H37 = A 1973 Citori 12 ga. shotgun with a serial number of 00001.
