Nice looking wood in this thread. Makes me jealous as I have one of the most plain Jane A5s.

Hi Folks!

I'm obliged :wink: to point out that a Browning doesn't have to be a Superposed to have beautiful wood ...

Image

Or even a shotgun ...

Image

Or even a long gun ...

Enjoy!
Dave



Dave I love that Double Auto! It looks really clean.

Those are wonderful stocks! I love the grain and the warm rich color. I notice you don't have any prince of wales gripped guns in the pictures. I be proud to own any of them. Thanks for sharing.

I was pretty proud of my Grade V Citoris, but after those gorgeous stocks from Fugotti, I'm almost embarassed. WOW!

But here they are anyway.

Here are some blocks of wood, at least one of which is a Browning-


Image


NoDak Scotty has said he is a "sucker for fiddleback." I kind of feel the same way about the walnut "feather pattern".

Top- 2007 CSMC 20g RBL.
Middle- 1972 Browning 20g.
Bottom- 1942 Garand .30 cal.

Great looking wood on this entire thread!

Both of you are justified in your affection for such, and inspired me to keep searching for something 'special' like your nice examples.

A 1957 Gr IV I negotiated a deal on back in the early part of February finally came-in today and exceeded my expectations. I was surprised to find a 'feather pattern' from the 50's.

I had not seen any wood like this from this period prior to this 'find'......and was a little skeptical at first..........In fact I said, "No Way!!....like it was almost too good to be true. But viewing additional photos requested from the seller, the checkering detail on the knob convinced me (as well as Muskyjack)......... so I took a gamble on originality.

Validating an all original gun after purchase is "Like icing on a cake'" Some cakes are more beautiful and taste better than others. Congrats!!!

Anatidae:

The internet has opened up new sources and venues to find fantastic pieces of history, such as your new Super. However, buying sight unseen sometimes requires that we exercise some faith in the representations of the Seller . . . and isn't it wonderful when representations turn out to be true, and expectations are exceeded?!

Congratulations! Absolutely spectacular!! {hs#

CFB - Thanks, and..........absolutely....YES!

But fortunately for me.......God protects stupid people, too.

I will attest that buying sight-unseen is risky.

While there are some reputable and honest folks out there, you have to remain aware (as I know you are) that the internet has also opened-up opportunities for other folks to take advantage of those who are so-'trusting'.

I'm sure most have learned, it's wise to ask questions. I didn't ask 'enough' on the Gr IV because I didn't want to appear 'un-trusting' or to suggest suspicion of impropriety. IMO - It never hurts to employ 'trust, but verify' if done without offending the other party. I relied mostly on the seller's photos and comments, and knowledge of details studied over time.

The other thing (that only comes through experience) is knowing what questions to ask.

Having been through this experience (fortunately, a positive outcome) - I urge extreme caution and advise folks to know (as best as your experience and knowledge dictates) EXACTLY what and with whom you are dealing, before contemplating a purchase abroad. Export/import fees are non-reverseable and one could hardly justify duplication (to origin), if dissatisfied with the item(s).

This could very easily have gone the other way ....so along with my initial statement above........ it never hurts to have a little luck on your side.

Thanks for everyone's interest and comments, thus far.

This is not the fanciest piece of wood, but it gives this 53 year old FN C2 game/sporter its unique character. The wood compliments the elegant style of engraving without overshadowing the gun's overall simplistic mastery.

Image
There's just nothing like the aroma of seasoned walnut when you shoulder this old gun. No other gun I have, 'points' so effortlessly. It dares me to miss.

I've often thought.....”If only the guns could talk..........”

In some ways, they 'can'.........and I'm soaking it in.

Here's a link to the engraving (if you're interested):http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=286714&p=3393076#p3393076

Awesome wood!

Love the deep brown color. Love the straight grain thru the pistol grip . . . makes for a good, strong stock.

The left side of the butt stock almost looks like Turkish Walnut.

Love the tear drop!

You're right. There's nothing better than a piece of walnut, with a well done oil finish!

Congrats! {hs#
