General Specs: Browning, Year 1967, 20 Gauge, 6lb 12oz, Chokes 0.016 Modified, LOP 14 5/16", DAH 2 3/8", DAC 1 1/2"
Serial Number: 7Z12395

Needing little introduction, the Browning A5 is one of the most iconic shotguns ever designed. With its signature humpback receiver design, the Browning Auto-5 is instantly recognizable and with more than 2.7 million made, it is a common sight both in the wild and the more manicured lawns of Skeet and Trap lines! These guns were made to be used and millions of hunters and sportsmen did just that - slinging billions of rounds of ammo at all kind of targets and they're still going strong! 

Manufactured in Belgium in 1967 and weighing a svelte 6lb 12oz with a Factory Vent Rib and a 27 1/2" barrel with Modified choke and mirror bore, this gun is in top condition with just some light handling wear on the lower receiver and excellent bluing on the barrel. It is in perfect mechanical condition complimented with an exceptional piece of French Walnut - a much higher grade of wood than commonly seen on Grade 1's. This gun is constructed in the long tang flat knob configuration, framed by classic Browning engraving still sharp and clear and capped with an art nouveau style Browning hard rubber buttplate. With a Length of Pull of 14 5/16" and a trigger pull of 3.25lb this Auto 5 is ready for some action!

This gun is Vintage Firearms Certified, salt free and comes with VFI's 30 day mechanical warranty.
