I’m very surprised it went as high as it did.
That’s nice, but at that price! Never thought I would see that.
I’m guessing the Type 1 engraving and the ribbed barrel is why it went so high. The Ogden marked barrel might have something to do with it as well. I think Rudolph has a similar gun that’s just as nice
Agreed. I know the solid rib brings more. Not sure why. Not like your looking at it when your shooting the damn thing. The rib was a great addition, however, my 1909 has no rib and I shoot it just fine. Guess eye candy.
They are too many people following our forum and Browning auto-5 are becoming too trendy.
I agree I don’t have a rib on any of mine and I shoot them just fine.
Mine’s not as nice, it’s got a short, Cutts equipped barrel. But I didn’t pay $2700 for it either. I think Grade 2 engraved guns are rare since they were discontinued in the US in 1938.
I think you're right. 69 bids, a lot of A5 interest.
May be true. All that engraving don't help you shoot any better and the game or target could give a shit less. Nothing sweeter then a sweet 16. Engraved or not.
I have to agree with you Ranger. I can’t imagine myself in a harvested corn field waiting in the blind with a shiny receiver. The geese will see you kilometers away. But I enjoyed those displayed auto-5 and a couple beers with my friends after a good hunt.
Do you want to adopt me?
It’s on the market again. Still too high for me
