I posted this in the Browning thread but if its ok like to ask ya'll to. I have a friend that has a A5 belgum made browning 12ga. the wood looks good for the age, a few scint places but no cracks or chips, the bluing is worn around the reciever some with a little rust but not bad at all, the barrel has a few scint places but bluing is still good. it has a rounded butt cap on the stock if that gives any idea about the age, he thinks it was produced in the 30's, I have no idea. Thanx for any info.
