My Grandfather had one of the Brownings for as far back as I can remember. It was the first firearm I ever shot. He used it when he was a butcher and then later on the farm. I shot a pile of woodchucks with it. The last I saw of it he still had it until he passed away. His 2nd wife probably sold it. It was a sweet shooting rifle. As I remember it had a gold bead for a front sight and as my Grandfather said you had to draw it down kind of fine.
