(1966) The "Pointer" grade guns are always in demand. This example built for the 12 bore 3" magnum is quite unusual, it is estimated that fewer than 20 were produced. It has 30" barrels choked full and modified which are fitted with standard raised ventilated rib. St. Louis and Montreal addresses and "MADE IN BELGIUM" are on left side of top barrel. Right side is marked with patent numbers, and "SPECIAL STEEL - 12 GA - CHAMBERED FOR 3" MAGNUM". Coin finished superposed action with gold plated single selective trigger is engraved in usual "Pointer" style with a field of small scroll within geometric borders surrounding oval scenes of pointers and birds; pointer retrieving a duck on left side of action, with another pointer retrieving a pheasant on right. Bottom depicts a pair of quail, and a cock pheasant takes flight over a recumbent hen on trigger guard bow. Engravers signature, "F. Marechal" is under each dog scene. Long tang, round knob buttstock of American walnut with interesting quilted and flame crotch figure measures 14 - 1/4" over open sided brown Browning white line pad. Full forend of fiddle figured walnut matches well. Tan Hartman case is lined in faux fur, and contains small Browning catalog and key attached to Naugahyde tag. CONDITION: Excellent overall, retaining nearly all factory type finishes on all wood and metal surfaces with only a few very light handling and assembly marks. Checkering lightly worn, has not been re-cut. Bores are excellent. Mechanically fine. Case is excellent. Interior lightly soiled. An attractive big Browning. MGM 115
