    The Browning Double Auto is a unique, Short Recoil semi auto designed by Val Browning. Instead of a magazine, the second shell sits in the loading port on the left side of the receiver.

    Thank God You're Here My Friend...!!

    Not that I'm an expert...but I never even heard of that concept.


    I did know Val was John Moses Browning's Son...I have a few pics of him in uniform with a BAR.

    Great shots, Shooter. And if you're talking about Short Recoil, I guarantee you've heard of it. Just about every pistol that's not blow back operated uses it. But the DA is the only long arm that I've ever heard of that does.

    Not the "short recoil"....the gun design as is constructed...with the port as stated.

    Like I said, it's unique. It was also the gun that introduced Speed Load. The first shell in the loading port gets whisked into the chamber and the bolt slams closed, ready to fire. Early guns had steel receivers but most have aluminum-- anodized in different colors, Forest Green being one. The silver gun is mine, currently at Art's having the stock re-done.

    I take it the purpose for this concept would be designed for clay shooting being only 2 shots.

    I think that was the idea. But it's a light gun with a slim fore end, and it loads fast -- once you get used to doing it left handed. I think a lot of guys use theirs for hunting.
