This model was introduced in 1984 and factory inventories were depleted in 1987.
The beautiful silver grey receiver has dramatic, dark shaded engravings of foliate scroll surrounding a leaping hound on the left with a flying mallard above. A ribbon along the bottom states, "One of Five Thousand." The right side shows a bust of John Browning along with a scene showing two mallards taking flight. The trigger guard and tang have more of the fine scroll work and there is the Browning stag logo inlaid in gold.
Dark colored, magnificent grain European walnut is used for the pistol grip stock and sculptured forearm. Fine point checkering with a rope border accents the grip surfaces and a deep, liquid, high gloss finish covers all.
This gun has never been fired and comes in the original factory box numbered to the gun. Call with any questions and see our other listings for ... "Only the best!"
