BROWNING 12G SEMI AUTOMATIC SHOTGUN.

12G Browning Auto Five Semi-automatic shotgun with a fixed Full choke 25 ½” (647mm) barrel and ¼” (6mm) ventilated raised rib. The well figured stock has a Rounded Prince of Wales grip and is in good condition other than a few relatively light marks. These guns were the first reliable semi-automatic shotguns ever created and form the basis of every other semi-auto shotgun today. Take one apart and you start to understand just how clever this Browning fella was. The design and construction is simply phenomenal with examples approaching 100 years old and more that still function flawlessly. It makes me wonder how well a modern counterpart would measure up after that long!

The action itself still has its original finish in good condition. Simply engraved BROWNING with an image of the man himself set into a small oval underneath. There is some light patination starting to the metal but nothing much given it’s no youngster. A little time and effort would certainly reap a worthwhile return and result in a very nice, very practical working piece of gun history. 8Lbs 6oz (3.8Kg)
