FN Browning Auto Five Standard 1936 Production Forward Safety Israeli Kibbutz Domicile Fair with customized 30 inch Acier .725 Cyl Bore Plain Barrel Lightning Round Knob Walnut Stock  Guns > Shotguns > Browning Shotguns > Autoloaders > Hunting
Description: Here is a historic FN Browning shotgun, despite its looks. From farm pest control service on a Kibbutz in the Land of Israel comes this Auto Five Standard Weight Shotgun. Manufacturer was Fabrique Nationale D'Armes De Guerre, Herstal – Belgique, and so marked on its barrel. From its 200000 range serial number, it was manufactured in 1936. Recent importer from Israel had to stamp it on the right side receiver in compliance with US Law. Type is John M. Browning design recoil operated semi automatic shotgun. Construction is entirely steel metal with only a brass friction ring. Stock and forend are European Walnut. Chambering is for 2 3/4 inch shells only, with Browning’s brass and steel friction rings that are adjustable for light to heavy load shells. Receiver, barrel, and parts interchange with old standard weight Auto Fives, not with the later Light Twelves. Barrel itself is marked, Acier Special; with a mismatched but original serial number. It measures 29 1/2 inches, nominally 30 inch. Its asterisk mark indicates it shipped as a Full Choke. It is, however, a victim of Kibbutznik gunsmithing, and sports a home made collar front sight support and has a bored out .725 cylinder bore muzzle. Magazine is white steel, Capacity is 4 + 1, or 2 + 1 with a plug or 3 shot adapter. Trigger is .260 smooth faced, pulls at 4 pounds with minimal felt creep and overtravel. Safety is forward type original ambidextrous. Buttstock is Lightning Round Knob type; length of pull is 14 1/2 inches, drop is 1 1/2 inches at comb and 2 1/2 inches at the heel. It has a 3/4 inch right hand cast. Weight empty is 8 pounds 2 ounces, with the center of gravity under the bolt handle. Finish was originally matte surface blued. Metal surface detractions are only moderate, principally operation wear to the barrel, and toning to the once white bolt and shell carrier. Forend has two crack repairs on its rear area. Butt plate has edge blemishes. Buttstock itself, happily, has scours but has no cracks. Apart from the muzzle collar, then, surface detractions are only moderate on this shotgun. We rate it as Good, perhaps Very Good Condition; but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore, chamber, and mechanism, however, are all bright and clean. We have test fired this shotgun with Remington Express ammunition, and no hitches. Its Israeli domicile enhances its collectability. We're offering the shotgun in the photos for only $ 259.00.

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
GA Pay buyers are NOT charged until we confirm we have the item and are ready to ship it. The same thing is true for phone-in, fax-in, and mail-in payments. In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
