    You're joking, right?

    I like my Auto-5, but I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Any London Best is better looking than an A-5.

    Most of them are, IMO. The hump on the A5 just doesn't do anything for me.

    They're sure up at the top IMO. I love mine. :cool:
     
  6. It's a classic-I have one from 1993 or so-haven't shot it for years, kicks like a mule and I'm getting to be an old man. But she is beautiful.

    Sorry, never cared for the "hump". Now, a nice Citori or B-25...hell yeah!
     
  10. I really like my one owner 1955 Auto 5, but my Kreghoff K-80 with Super Scroll wood is best looking girl in my safe.

    IIRC I think a couple other companies made shotguns based on this Browning design as well. Can't recall who they were off hand, think maybe Savage was one of em' but I'm not sure.

    I do like Browning firearms very much, the beauty and polish is hard for me to resist... The old Browning high wall rifles are just a masterpiece too IMO, but to be honest any quality firearms strikes an emotion of lust for me... Me looking at nice firearms is like looking at a well rounded set of lumps and a juicy hump, it's hard to not like them for what they are -- even if they're not top $$ and for the aristocrat ...
     
  17. I have a Rem 1100 made in 73'. I think it's a grade I as it has scrolling engraved on the reciever. High gloss finish on walnut stocks and bluing so deep it's black. It is beautiful...even though it's not Italian!
     
  18. I like the smoother lines of the Ithaca and the excellent trigger... oops, still a Browning design.
