Description: General Specs: Browning, Year 1956, .22 LR, 4lbs 14oz

Serial Number: T7767

Here we have an extraordinary Belgium made Browning .22 Automatic Rifle dressed in the garb of the Grade III engraving and wood. What a gorgeous little rifle, factory original in every way, with 99% plus blue, coin finish, and wood finish. This Browning, serial number T7767 made in 1956, is a HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER FIRST YEAR PRODUCTION GUN, with the original coin finish receiver, wheel sight, large loading port, and the pivoting tab at the back of the magazine tube. The engraving is deeply chiseled and full of detail, but is unsigned, as was the case with most of these Grade III rifles built in 1956. These little Belgium Brownings have become highly collectible and are now investment quality rifles that will continue to grow in value as you enjoy the ownership and use. The 19 3/8” barrel has a perfect mirror shiny bore. There are no dings or marks in the factory original barrel blue. The wood is highly figured French walnut with great figure on both sides of the stock, the skip-line checkering perfect, the finish flawless and without scratches or dings. This is one of the finest Browning Grade III rifles I have ever seen and having the bright coin finish makes it quite unique, as after 1957 they became the grey finished receiver through the end of FN production in 1973. The Grade III Browning .22 Automatic Rifle was hand fit and finished and engraved and checkered entirely by hand by the Belgium Master Engravers at the Fabrique Nationale plant. This is not the machine engraved guns that came later. Please don’t hesitate, as these guns rarely come up for sale. Thanks for looking! Barrels
