Format: Hardcover
I have been collecting Browning guns for a few years. I have tried to find out as much as I can about each gun I acquire. Not until I got this book did I get the real history behind each gun. This book is a great guide on finding out all there is to know about Browning guns and Browning history. I don't know how I got this far without this book. It even contains old orginal adds and instructions books! The book covers every possible detail. If you are a Browning fan this book is a must.

This book is a must not only for the longtime Browning collector but the novice buyer as well. It contains detailed explanations of all different Browing firearms, including the models and grades of each type. In addition there is also a good bit of information on Browning's history, proof marks and seriel numbers just to name a few of the catagories this book touches on. I have found it an excellent resource.

Excellent. Owner's of Browning FN Bolt Action Rifles made in Belgium in the 1960-1970s will find this book very informative. It contains information that even few Browning personnel know about.
