FN Browning Auto Five Super Light 1972 Production Israeli Kibbutz Domicile Serviceable Brown Patina with 30 inch Acier .684 Full Vent Barrel Custom Walnut  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 Super Light Shotgun. Manufacturer was Fabrique Nationale D'Armes De Guerre, Herstal – Belgique, and so marked on its barrel. From its 7239000 range serial number, it was manufactured in 1972. 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 Steel Barrel, springs, bolt, trigger hammer, magazine tube, and internal parts built into a light weight alloy receiver. 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 independent serial number. It measures 29 1/2 inches, nominally 30 inch, with .684 muzzle diameter fixed full choke, and correct asterisk marking. Sight system is a 16 post .256 wide serrated top Ventilated Rib with stainless steel bead front sight. The rib sits .23 inch above the barrel at the forend cap. 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 6 pounds with minimal felt creep and overtravel. Safety is later type, behind the trigger guard, serrated button for Right Handed shooters only. Buttstock is modified English type straight tang; length of pull is 14 1/2 inches, with a straight customized stock whose drop is 1 1/2 inches at comb and heel. It has a 3/4 inch right hand cast. Weight empty is 7 pounds 3 ounces, with the center of gravity under the bolt handle. Finish was original blued steel, black alloy, and satin nickel trigger group. Barrel and mag cap surfaces are down to Brown patina. Receiver shows substantial wear; trigger group retains its satin chrome finish quite well. Buttstock has Kibbutznik repairs to its tang area, attest the bolt heads showing. Receiver and tang are missing two set screws; lower tang has an oversized screw. Surface detractions, then, are extensive to this shotgun; the Israelis are not known for babying their firearms. We rate it as Fair Condition, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. The Kibbutzniks may have neglected the exterior, but the bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright and clean. We have test fired this shotgun with Remington Express ammunition, and no hitches. The Auto Five Super Light is a rare shotgun. They were never commercially imported into the US new. Nice ones will fetch 4 figure prices. We estimate a professional restoration on this one at $600 vicinity. We're offering the shotgun in the photos, however, for only $ 339.00.

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.
