I was presented a .22 Browning Auto sl.# 118349 made by F.N. of Belgium. It has a Top of the grip loading port, takes only 9 rounds of .22 lr and originally had a skinny fore piece which had broken into three pieces. That apart, the rifle is a beautiful shooter, no problems and I love it. Was given to me because soneone had dismantled it and badly fiddled with the barrel tightness/play adjustment collar:- result, it became a single-shot-take-it-apart-reload-shoot gun.Im curious as when this piece was made since I understand that later guns were made in Japan by Miroku and a Licensed copy made as the Remington Model 24 and 241. Any info, guys?
