Browning A5 Police Special
Had an interesting A5 pass through my hands lately, from a bud to another bud who effected a repair and then back again.
Browning A5 with factory extended mag, factory extended forearm, 20 inch or so barrel, (I didn't measure) funky baked enamel finish, sling swivels.
As near as I can tell, it is correct and special order for South Africa police, circa 1960. Sorry, no pics, but a search will yield some photos I'm sure.
Never heard of the gun before!
