What is value of browning sweet sixteen with gold trigger purchased in 1964 used once and kicked too hard. Has modified choke 28 inch?
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 recoil pads (other than Mag 12's) poly-chokes and compensators will reduce value. Sounds like your gun is near new condition, but with over 40 years of storage, it can put some wear on a gun. Recommend taking it to a gun shop for appraisal. As far as your comment about the gun kicking, Browning A5's are some of the easier recoiling guns ever made. This statement has been made by many owners before. Usually it is a simple case of the friction rings being set for heavy or light loads. This is a 2 3/4 chambered gun. If you shoot a heavy load like High Brass 4's, 5's or 6 shot, and the gun is set for light loads, the gun recoils hard and you will feel a real kick from it. The brass friction rings need to be set for the heavy loads to shoot those shells. It is a world of difference in felt recoil. Back in the 60's, heavier 16ga shells were available more so than today. Now lets say you are shooting lighter loads for dove and quail or trap shooting. If the gun friction rings were set for heavy loads, chances are the gun won't eject the fired shell. To change the rings is simple. Remove the forearm and the barrel. The rings are on the magazine tube. For a diagram on how the rings should be set, you can visit the Browning Companies web site for a diagram. Print the diagram and cut it out so it will fit inside the forearm. Use a little glue to keep it against the inside of the forearm. Now you can change the rings easily with the diagram right there.
The gold trigger usually means that a Browning A5 is a Lightweight,in this case a Sweet Sixteen made after 1947. However, the sweet Sixteen was available from 1937 with this option and it has nothing to do with the value of the gun. Choke,barrel type,stock type and most of all condition are the driving factors with these guns. === === A pre war sweet 16 (1937-1939) has a gold trigger as did all Sweets. 1947…

I have sweet 16-1948 SN X18xxx that does not have gold trigger has 3 holes in barrel ring and scripted sweet sixteen on left side why no gold trigger?
Answer If the gun has a cross bolt safety, it means that it was converted by Browning. This gun was made with the safety in the front of the trigger guard. Many times the gun would be converted and the new trigger was blued. If your safety is in the front of the trigger guard, then best explanation would be that it was replaced from repair, or that the gun was refinished. A sweet 16…
