    The last few numbers narow down the configuration of your firearm. The first numbers are serialized, the letters are the production date, the last 3 are the model.

    A pic would help.

    From the shape of the pistol grip area, it looks like a 425. The 525 had a much more curved (shorter radius) grip area. That's really nice looking wood for a Grade 1. Is it chambered for 3" shells?

    Yes chambers are 3",i was quite impressed with the wood too for a grade 1.It is in as new condition so no marks at all.

    I would concour that it is a sporter/bunker gun. It's nice to see a Browning without holes in the barrels.

    Here is the browning website that can help you "age" your gun. If you use this site, they give you more than just its age. There is also a phone number to help with any other questions.

    Hope it works for you!

    The pistol grip looks like the European 325. There is a fellow here that imports European Brownings. They sell well over here. Some folks like fixed chokes and no porting.

    I do not have a problem with fixed chokes, either. :^)
