This gun is a 12 gauge with a solid rib and a serial number indicating that it was made in 1932. It’s obviously decorated with gold, although as far as I’ve been able to find, gold wasn’t an option on Grade 3 guns, so it’s a bit of a head-scratcher. If any Browning experts would like to weigh in, I’d like to hear from you. Meanwhile, enjoy this shotgun from “Anonymous,” who shared these pictures in hopes that someone could tell him more about this ornate Auto 5. All I know about it is what I’ve written above and that the owner has himself a dandy shotgun.
