  1. Apparently Browning made a few as a one off for one of the bigger gun shops.
  2. Thanks , the stock fits fine it’s only the fore end wood which won’t fit over the barrels, so it will need altering to fit and Is totally different colour and grain.
  3. Thanks for the reply. The gun is fine but surprised that I couldn’t swap the wood over (not the action and fore end) which are identical and the only thing stopping it seem to be the thickness of the barrels. Also surprised that when Browning we’re contacted by 2 local RFds they said they were not aware of them as was trying to order locally. Thanks makes sense.
  4. Hi all, Ive just purchased a new 3 1/2” Browning 525 Game 30” . because of social distancing I brought the gun via RFD to my local RFD so didn’t look at it first but first impressions are good. Although RH And almost straight stocked my intention was to swap the stock and fore end wood from my LH 2017 sporter, use the one gun for everything. Both guns are 30”, but too my surprise the Game felt heavier which I put down to balance and maybe the density of the wood. The barrels definitely seem heavier on the game (not confirmed but will get weighed). Also the wood on the fore end from my sporter will not fit over the new barrels of the 3 1/2” which seems as if the barrels could be slightly beefed up. I was under the impression these were altered Original 3” game guns which were Bored for 31/2” cartridges re proofed and engraving changed. The barrels are stamped: 2/3/4”, 3” and 31/2” and 23/4 and 3” on the sporter so does look like like they have had addition stamp of 31/2” on them. My RFD contacted Browning who said they were not making a 31/2” but I registered my warranty on line and was accepted so not sure what’s going on. so if anyone has any info it would be fearfully received as I’m very curious. Many thanks

  6. My Laksen lightweight is now 13 seasons old and other than stitching on one of the cartridge pockets coming undone it’s never let me down and still very dry in all weather.
  7. Hi is still available? many thanks
  8. Hi yes I had a Kicks in my old 10 but changed to a Terror Choke which was noticeably different tbh but thanks for comments.
  9. Thanks for the heads up. I had both long range and extended range waterfowl chokes for my old SX3 which were very good with everything including BBB’s. I haven’t considered Briley but may be worth looking at. Have you used big pellets through them? thanks Ian
  10. As above l, Carlson’s Invector Plus, Extended Range or Long Range Choke Wanted if any one has one they no longer require. thanks
