I have on consignment a very nice Browning Diana Grade 12 gauge built in 1965 (before the salt problems) with 30 inch barrels. This particular gun is beautifully engraved and signed on both sides by R. Risack. Here are all the particulars on this gun.

Stock dimensions are 1 3/8" X 1 5/8" X 14 1/2" over original Browning pad.
30" barrels are marked full and improved modified and have the following measurements - bottom barrel .726 bore, .703 at choke, giving a .023 restriction. Top barrel measures .724 bore, .685 at choke, giving a .039 restriction. Barrels are chambered for 2 3/4" shells and it has an 8MM straight rib. Weight of the gun is 8 pounds 3 ounces on my digital scale.

Gun has beautiful wood as you can see in the pictures and is in excellent overall condition with one scratch (not through the finish) on the left side of butt stock. There is some reflections in the photos of the butt, these are only reflections and not blemishes in the finish. Checkering is excellent and this gun has the popular field style forend. Stock is long tang, flat knob.

Price of the gun is $6500 plus actual shipping costs. Contact me at [email protected] with any questions you might have on this gun. As always there is a three day non-firing inspection period with the buyer paying all shipping charges if the gun is returned.

Esetter - You made a comment that the gun was built before the salt problems. Please explain what the salt problems were. I have never heard that before.

Thanks Huntinandhotrods

Thanks guys, I try to sell only nice guns that I would want to own myself. One of my problems is, I want to own them all! Another problem is, I have some friends with really nice guns, and they always want me to sell them for them. I do have fun with it, and have met some really great people doing it.

No, it is not a Broadway rib. It is a straight 8MM rib and a broadway is much wider. Not sure of the exact width of a Broadway, but I know it is wider than 8MM. Sorry I can't be more specific.
