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.

    Correction - A fellow TS member brought to my attention some corrections that should be made to my description. The Diana grade was not a part of the Browning catalogue until 1960 when the Grade V was renamed "Diana" with a few subtle changes to the engraving.. The grade V was initially a catalogue offering in 1950 and was the highest catalogue gun offered until the grade VI came along in 1957. A 1950's grade V is a very rare gun! Thanks

    I believe they made Diana grades pre-48 and post 1960. Being 1955 yours is most likely a grade V. There are many Browning experts on here that can surely tell you more.

    Beautiful gun that is well worth the price in my opinion. If I didn't buy so many Christmas presents I would definitely add this to the gun case.

    Std,. pigeon. pointer, gr IV, Diana, Midas, Exebition. Browning grades as I remember them. Many years ago, a friend of mine and I responded to a newspaper ad for a Grade IV field gun. My buddy wanted to try and beat him down, and I insisted he pay him and let's get the hell out of here before someone else shows up. The price was $400, circa 1965.

    Euro Joe is mistaken. This gun was made during the time when there were number grades only. This is a scarce Grade V, and a nice one.

    Hey Bruce,

    Very nice superposed. I'll have to sell more Herters decoys to afford one.

    You can call the Browning historian Glen Jensen on the phone and he will give you the skinny over the phone for no charge. I have a four digit serial # that I actually ponyed up and purchased the historical document.

    http://www.browning.com/customerservice/qna/detail.asp?id=197


    Question:
    I would like historical information about my Browning firearm. Where can I get this?

    Answer:
    Add a piece of history to your firearm! For $39.95 (Shipping included), our Browning Historian will research your firearm and type a historical letter.
    Historical Letters include: Date of manufacture, invoice number, date of sale, to where the gun was shipped, and a description of the firearm.
    All letters come on official Browning Historic Letterhead which is authentically stamped & signed by the Historian and are enclosed in a plastic cover.
    For more information, please contact Browning Customer Service at 1-800-333-3288.

    eightbore: whadya mean I was mistaken. I didn'nt say this gun was a grade IV, I just stated grades as I remembered them. I don't know much about that old stuff, I'm only 74.

    Don't mind the old CULL, they just cann't help themselves. On a lighter note, Richie the target setter took over a club I go to, he told me to tell you and Murry Merry Christmas.

    Your poor shot Browning Pigeon shooter buddy.
    Best
