1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    What are the letters in the SN? That will tell me the year of manufacture.

    I am interested in what this gun exactly is. It almost looks like it was engraved by someone, other than Browning, and then a Silver Nitrate finish was applied. The wood however is an upgrade.

    What are the last digits of the serial number? Also, what are the letters, or letter in the middle, if there are any? This receiver looks to be the older version. Just curious, as I am into Browning guns. Just never seen one like this before. It almost looks custom. Jon

    From what I recall, Grade II's where hand engraved, on a nickel receiver. This looks like a Grade II receiver that has been refinished, or nitrate coated.

    The serial is RT 153 I'm told its a 1979 3" but I have a hard time believing its that old, its so tight and it still looks brand new.I bought it 5-6 yes ago for its looks, I maybe have 200 rds through it. What do you guys think, maybe I should keep it if its a rare one...
    Thanks Kevin

    This would be a Citori 12 ga. 3" Gr.1 Hunting, manufactured in 1976. According to Brownings "date your gun" page. It is a Beautiful firearm. I cant believe a Browning addict hasn't snapped it up yet.

    I would say that it is a Grade II Citori that has been silver nitrate coated. The serial number is a Grade I (153), but I think they used the standard serial number system and hand engraved the nickel receiver for the Grade II's. I know there where Grade II Citori's, but Browning did not have a different model number, in the serial number.

    Kevin,

    Call Browning. I think there is someone there that answers questions as to what guns are, and the history. Jon
