This is an American Browning 20 gauge Auto 5 shotgun. 2 3/4" shells. The gun was made 1940 according to my Browning dates book so it is a FTF cash and carry as long as you are legaly able to purchase a gun in California.

The original bluing is nice with some light wear in a few places. The stock has had a pad added at some point. There are a few nicks in the wood and some slight "checking" in the stock finish.Overall a very clean older gun.

These guns were made by Remington during WW2 when the Nazi's took over the FN plant in Belgium and are somewhat scarce. They are much like a Remington Model 11 but have the Browning shell magazine disconnect and Browning markings on the reciever and barrel. The top of the reciever and tang is finished in a matte finish due to factory bead blasting to give it a rough finish.

It is a nice handling light 20 gauge upland bird or dove gun. It was originally a full choke that I had professionaly opened up by a gunsmith to an improved cylinder so it is more versatile.You can not tell the choke was open by looking at the gun. No cracks in the stock or forearm.

If you are looking for a Belgian or Jap A5 this is the gun for you at a fraction of the price and no dros fees. Prefer local sales and not shipping.

The rear trigger housing screw and edge of hole looks a bit buggered on the right side where it comes thru the reciever (tried to show in picture) Just want to disclose that.

Yeah, I guess I wasn't guilty of over pricing it and taking advantage of some "noob" like was discussed in another thread.

I gotta get more current on my pricing, seems my stuff rarely lasts very long!
