OK, one more. Who knows about the Savage Model 720 semi-auto 12 ga that looks like a Browning A-Bolt. Its S/N 59281 and in mint condition.

I've inherited my fathers gun collection which includes this shotgun, the Mossberg Model 485B and a Model 94 dated to 1928.

Browning A-Bolt

You mean Browning Auto-5. It is a liscenced clone of the Auto-5, and pretty much all information about the information about Auto-5s can be applied to it; such as changing the recoil system setting to cycle heavy or light loads. Great gun, my late Grandfather's prefered (well, only) shotgun.

Again, the 720 is fundamentally the same as the Remington model 11 or Browning A-5. I have the shotgun you describe in 12GA and it is a real rabbit fiend.

Hey that's the same kind as my Dad's old gun, blued. Can somebody tell me where to find the serial number? I've looked all over.

I have a mint 720 in 16 ga. and it is better made than either the Browning A-5 or the Remington 11. The serial # should be under the trigger guard just like a Browning.

I have one of those that I inherited from my grandfather. Never shot it (light riust on the bolt). It is in 16ga. Beauty of a shotgun!
