Description

THIS IS A FABULOUS HAND-MADE BROWNING B25 D3 30" TRAP GUN, IN WONDERFUL CONDITION, AS GOOD AS I'VE SEEN IN A WHILE. IT HAS CLEARLY SEEN ALMOST NO USE, AND MUCH CARE SINCE IT WAS MADE 44 YEARS AGO. IT WAS MANUFACTURED IN 1976, AND APPEARS MORE AS HAVING HAD 4 1/2 DAYS OF USE, NOT DECADES. THE POSITIVES? TIGHT ACTION, SHARP CHEQUERING, NO SPLITS NO CRACKS NO DINGS, UNMARKED METALWORK, REALLY GOOD WOOD, WELL-BALANCED, A PROPER CLAYS AND GAME SHOTGUN, AND 100% ORIGINAL TOO, NOT MESSED ABOUT WITH IN ANY RESPECT. THE NEGATIVES? A FEW TINY MARKS TO THE STOCK, THAT'S IT; AN OUTSTANDINGLY GOOD GUN THIS ONE. OH, AND THE FACT IT'S AROUND £25,000 CHEAPER THAN BUYING A NEW D3 DOESN'T HURT EITHER. SOME OUT THERE IN GT LAND MIGHT WONDER WHY I GET SO ANIMATED ABOUT SOME THINGS LIKE THIS OLD BROWNING... I'LL TELL YOU WHY; EVERY DAY I LOOK AT GUNS ONLINE THAT ARE JUST WRONG, THE RIB IS WRONG, THE CHOKES HAVE BEEN BORED OUT, THE ORIGINAL AND BEAUTIFUL FN BROWNING BUTT PAD HAS BEEN CHOPPED OFF CRUDELY AND SOME CRAPPY PAD HAS BEEN ADDED BY A TALENTLESS SOMEONE, OR THE WOOD IS CRACKED, OR SOMEONE HAS POLISHED THE ACTION LIKE A SHINY THING IN A CHROMIUM FACTORY, I'M FED UP OF SEEING THIS CRAP FOR SALE, USUALLY AT STRONG MONEY TOO. THIS D3 IS FAB AND IT'S NO MONEY IN THE SCHEME OF THINGS, AND THE TRAP/SPORT/GAME THING? I DO WELL WITH A GUN WITH REASONABLY HIGH COMB HEIGHT, AS DO ENOUGH OTHERS ALSO, SO COULD I DO WELL WITH THIS AT ABT, ENGLISH SPORTING, PHEASANTS AND PIGEON? DAMN RIGHT I COULD AND SO MIGHT YOU, AND ALL THE WHILE BEING PROUD TO BE USING A HANDMADE PIECE OF HISTORY. THE OVERALL LENGTH IS 47", THE DROP TO COMB IS 36mm, WITH 38mm TO THE HEEL.
