Value of browning 78 2506 round barrel 26in?

The B78's were made for Browning by Miroku of Japan from 1973 to 1982 and the values vary a bit. A moderately used 78 in a popular caliber will run from $800 to $1500. Their popularity is apparently on the way back and Winchester has started making a Model 1885 which is basically the same gun with less flashy wood and not many chamberings. Browning had made an 1885 Model back in the 90's for a few years. I purchased a mint 6mm B-78 two years ago for $850 and thought it one hell of a deal.
