2 SHOT Double Auto Browning 12g Semi-Automatic Shotgun dating all the way back to 1956 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) Plain, None Ribbed Barrel with a Raised Single Front Sighting Bead and tight ½  choke. Chambered 2 ¾” (70mm). Stock pull is 14” (355mm) bringing in an overall length of 46 ¾” (1187mm). Scales show a weight of 7 lbs 7 oz (3.375 Kg) so this is a Standard Model that’s lost 4 oz in 67 years!

Part of this could be down to a slightly shorter stock than the other guns here. However this does appear original. Concave curves do take some doing to match the original Pressed Horn Butt Plate. (The specified weight will just be an average in reality. As such nothing to worry about and its just me adding the odd bit of levity to the advert).

Generally EXCELLENT condition considering its age. The original Pressed Horn Butt Plate is still in place too. Rounded Prince of Wales Pistol Grip to a Strong Straight Grain Very Light Coloured Walnut Stock and Forend. Some Good Colour Contrast too with Chequering still Very Clean and Crisp. No damage to the forend from anyone trying to strip barrels the wrong way. If you are not SURE just ask.

The action retains some of its original Blued finish but zero rust so purely patination and fare ware. A Simple but Nice Panel of Scrollwork Engraving with a Zig-Zag pattern Border all around the outer edges. Roller Ball style safety positioned to the rear on the Trigger Guard. Presently not fitted but it IS here and available with the gun. Fitted or not. Previous owner preferred to use it as it currently is.
