i have a shotgun double barrel, i think it maybe 12gauge with Richard or righard on the plate below the barrel, the butt of the shotgun has browning automatic on it, which made me think it was a browning, but it is not...can you help me id the shotgun and what the value is
do you have a picture
I thought twentyweight was for (20) gauge.. I assume you are talking about Browning shotguns? The "Double Automatic" was a Browning A5 type of gun that only held two shells. Lighter weight than a standard 12 gauge,maybe as light as a 20 gauge gun. The aluminum receiver would be the main way the weight was reduced on the 12 gauge. I'm sorry I don't have my Browning books handy to give any more info.
