    Picked this beauty up this week. Didn't look up the serial number yet, but looks to be a 70's gun. Standard model, 12 gauge, 28", Mod choke, ventilated rib, etc. The gun is in 95% NRA condition and looks like it was used maybe once. All wood is grade III and hand checkered. Can't wait to try it out. The forearm is super thin, all the gas is inside the recoil tube. Very easy to take apart and clean. These were manufactured by FN in Belgium, then sent to Portugal for final assembly.

    Hope you like seeing it...

    I had one I purchased new in the early 80's and foolishly got talked out of it. I loved that gun, right next to my A-5's for me. Shot it once and loved it.

    I have never owned or shoot one of these so I have to ask why the big hole in the left side?

    The big hole on the left side is where you put the loaded round. It sucks it in and chambers it so fast that you can not see it happen. HMB

    I have had one since 1975, I bought it when I was in college. A very nice shooting gun mine is very well used and I have 2 barrels. The large hole on the left side of the receiver is the loading port. This Browning design was also used on the Browning Double Automatic. This gun had some nice features but was not a great seller for Browning as it was expensive to make. I see them for sale on gun sites from time to time. The gas piston was always a pain to keep clean but other than that is a good gun.

    Browning only exported around 117,000 guns to North America with many of them and parts landing in Canada...

    I had one back in the late '70's. Nice gun to shoot but a bear to clean.
