ENGRAVED 1951 Browning Auto-5 12-gauge semi-auto shotgun with a 29 1/2" barrel. Blue condition is 99.9% with no wear! Engraving is on the entire receiver, as well as extended partically on the barrel, consisting of a scroll pattern with ducks scene on the left side, and dog & pheasant scene on the right side. The right side of the buttstock is also engraved with hunter & duck.
The A5 was made from 1903 to the '90s. This one is a 1951 model, which was the last year they made it with the front safety. It was made in Belgium, and has "Fabrique Nationale D'Armes De Guerre Herstal-Belgique" stamped on the barrel. It also has "FN" stamped on the receiver, above the serial number.
This is an extremely well maintained firearm, and would definitely be an asset to anyone's collection. The only mark is a 3/4" minor scratch on the left side of the buttstock. Other than that, its in perfect like-new condition. No box or paperwork. SN: 3125xx.
