It also has the heiroglyphs on the bolt surface behind the charging handle similar to the above rifle. I don't care what kind of shape your Browning.

This scope has the dovetail rings that clamp into the somewhat shallow dovetail grooves on the receiver. Mine goes to the range frequently and makes for a great squirrel gun as well. While every effort has been made to ensure that the information provided on serial numbers and dates of manufacture are accurate, records on early production models such as the Auto-5 and Superposed shotguns were not included due to the complexity of numbers, models and grades offered.

I've looked at several web sights,and can find only info on the long rifle and nothing on the short which I'm presuming means {short only}. You need to see what's actually stamped into the rifle.

No, I will not trade a Colt Python in exchange for your hot wife and a future first-round draft choice.
