I bought one for $200, never saw one until I bought that particular one. It had a dark green receiver and no v/r on the barrel. Nice gun. Made in Belgium. Noticed it kicked good too. 8) Congrats !

Guest, Your Belgium made Browning is not made for Hevishot or steel. See the Browning website.

Artz, The Double-Auto came in several colors and your green receiver was one of the rarer ones. Yours was called "Forest Green". Other colors were "Autumn Brown,Velvet Grey,Dragon Black". The brown,grey and green had silver engravind while the black had gold rubbed engraving. Other rare colors include pink,light brown,ruby and maroon. The most common colors being black and silver.

My Dad bought one in about 1958. It is my favorite upland bird shotgun. It is light weight, and very very fast to bring to shoulder. I shoot left handed and had severe shoulder repair surgery on my left shoulder . About a year to the day of the surgery I was afield with the twelvette pheasant hunting. I don't find the kick bothersome at all. The gun seems to come up right in line where I want it top be with little or no adjustment. Just snap up and fire.

Over the years with every hunting group where I have used the twelvette some one has offered to buy it off me.
