2 SHOT Double Auto Browning 12g Semi-Automatic Shotgun dating all the way back to 1959 production. (As information direct from Browning US). Apparently detail online is / WAS incorrect in that production of these guns ran from 1952 to 1971. With only around 67,000 ever made its not a big number for any to survive. Testament to just how good they are that they do!


For more history you are probably best simply checking details out on Wikipedia where I just amended dates. 26-09-2023. Or other accurate sites.

Becoming quite collectable as people ‘discover’ just how well designed and superbly well made these guns are. (As the even older Auto 5 options were that John Browning originally designed). Also the fact they are getting harder and harder to find means they are likely to only go one way in value. Even if they don’t you have a gun you can have some great shooting with. Just enjoy while you wait and see.

This gun came in from a previous customer who had put a small collection of 5 together over many years. He WOULD like them to find an equally appreciative new home.

27 ½” (700mm) None Standard Barrel. This having a Raised and Ventilated ¼” (6mm) Cross Filed Sight Rib with Single Brass Bead to the muzzle. Fixed X-Full choke so will throw an extremely tight pattern. Great for longer distance and far more Sporting shots. Standard 2 ¾” (70mm) Chamber. Stock pull is 14 ¼” (363mm) and brings in an overall length of 47” (1195mm). Scales show a weight of 8 lbs 1 ½ oz (3.674 Kg) so this is a Standard Model that’s gained a bit in 65 years!

Generally Tidy enough condition considering its age. Steel Action with just about all of the original finish now absent. The original Pressed Horn Butt Plate is still in place too. Rounded Prince of Wales Pistol Grip to a Well Patterned Walnut Stock. The original varnish finish also with a few light chips and marks. Chequering could benefit from a re-cut but the gun IS perfectly usable exactly as it is. This forend does have very minor damage to rear top on both sides. Directly from someone trying to strip barrels the wrong way. If you are not SURE just ask.

All you have to do is simply pull the small catch back at the back / bottom of the forend. GENTLY drop the back end down approx. ½” and then slide the barrel from the action. Job Done!

These are not particularly noticeable unless you specifically LOOK for them directly down from above. None of these are anything more than aesthetics. The gun will very likely function perfectly well for another 60 plus years exactly as it is now.

The action has all but lost the original Blued finish but zero rust so purely patination and fare ware. It would easily re-finish too so ideal for an out of season project gun.
