This is one I bought and snuck into the house when the kids were small...:angel:
Bought brand new from a big gun shop in Framingham, MA ( Lew Horton’s)
Anyway they had a special with one year financing, at 0% interest so I figured I could make the sneaky payments on the sly without the wifey finding out. Well I did just that. Now it’s time to start clearing my safe of safe queens so it’s up for sale.
Manufactured in 1985 and used very carefully a couple of times in the pheasant fields. Chambered 2 3/4 and 3” shells. Bores are mirror shiny.
Gun is as new and it shows. Browning quality speaks for itself and this shotgun is beautiful and tight. 28” barrels.
Someone else could have fun with this beauty as my arthritic hips won’t allow me to bust the brush any more.
Comes with the chokes and wrench of course and an extra turkey choke which was never fired through. Original owners manual too. It will come in a nice (plastic but heavy) takedown case. The gun is also stamped “STEEL SPECIAL” so it’s good to go for steel shot. $1500 firm.

Would only let me load those two pics...very fussy lately. Please PM me with a phone or email and any questions or to see more pics.

I would like to add that I would trade this shotgun for an excellent condition 9.9 horse, 4 stroke outboard. I'm hoping to add a a kicker motor to my tri-toon next season. Trolling with my Yamaha 150 got to be expensive not to mention the hours piling up on it.

Someone please get in touch with arlow to see if he can get a pardon from " the warden " !

Or there is always Plan B . " Its easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission " :angel:
Just tell her you sold another gun and bought this one.

This is my wife when she sees the credit card bill. "Wow that's a lot for another gun!" . My reply, "I sold a gun and bought this one with the money". Then I hand her the cash to put towards the credit card bill. All good.

Of course, when I can, I just buy cash, that is always best.

Any offers? I'm listening...:smile:
Mo that is a beautiful browning. Not sure how far you are from 20th skeet in Hooksett NH (they have a website also I think) but I’m sure if you went by on the weekend during a shoot and hung an add on there board in the club house that would be gone by the end of the day Sunday. I know at the club up here it would be sold quick in the shape it’s in for $1000.00. Good luck with it.

Thanks for the suggestion! Not sure if I’ll hang an ad there but perhaps word of mouth may be helpful!
