Nice! Is that colour hardening on the action or is is just blacked? Can't go wrong with a Browning
Its a blackened finish
The woodwork is like new and metal work is 99%
I cant wait to get out with it
Excuse my ignorance but whats an A1 model
Could easy be wrong, but I had a Liege, a 28" game version. I was informed they are a B26, a sort of budget Browning in comparison to the B25, plain black action, but in every way a Browning. I loved mine but wanted something more suitable for throwing more cartridges through at clays, and couldn't afford to keep it at the time. Lovely gun.
Aye, after private discussion, it's not and A1 right enough. Still be a good enough gun though. Are they made in Japan, despite "Liege" in the name?
Dont worry about us geeks Scoop, Browning made/make a range of guns. The B25 model has a zillion variations, starting, I think, with A1 and soaring off up the alphabet and abacus!!
You have fun.
If its a true Belgian gun that splits in two not three parts the model number will be roughly stamped on the action below where the long locating lug locates.
It says FABRIQUE NATIONALE HERSTAL
made in belgium
There are the usual proof mark stamps and a few other stamps scattered around various places
There is one unusual number on it 5911 electrically scribed
