Manufactured in Japan by Miruku, one of the finest gun makers PERIOD, for Browning. Don't know the made on date, but the serial number is 50819K4x. Overall great condition with just a little handling wear on both sides on the crappy pic. Looks like it was once touched up with cold blueing, but it's not ugly at all. Stock and forearm have been nicely refinished with TruOil. Bore is mirror and the action is typical Browning buttery smooth. Cash price of $600 or trade for a Glock 27 w/all the factory stuff, 3rd generation only. Gun is also listed on another site, but, first come, first server :thumbup:.
