Browning Auto 5 12ga
My dad and I are looking to purchase a gun similar to my grandfather's 1956 Christmas present that was from the family. This gun was stolen 15 years ago so our memories and information are faded. We know that it held 5 rounds, was the typical humpback design, it had checkering on the stock and the foregrip. We know it was semi auto, it did not have a vented rib, it did have a reddish brown recoil pad, and it was manufactured before 1955, and it did not have a gold trigger.
Here is the confusion, the entire family thinks it was a Browning A5. One member is sure that it had pheasants engraved on the side or ducks of some sort. Every A5 style shotgun I have seen that has pheasants is either a Remington or a Savage. All of the Brownings seem to have the typical ornate scrollwork but none that I have found have pheasants. We have lost any other information, and can't seem to find any pictures.
So here is my question, did Browning ever produce a 12ga with pheasants, humpback, 5 shot, no vented rib, no gold trigger? Any info is greatly appreciated.
