At age 75 and in declining health, I've sold off all of my guns and hunting gear. Down to the last three shotguns that were my favorites. Oh what stories each could tell ... Anyone interested?





The Brownings are $3,000 each, the Model 12 $2,500. Willing to negotiate on a single purchase of all.

Not sure on first one but both cases look like Brownings. Second looks like a Grade V Citori, 3rd is definitely a Win. Model 12, probably circa 1935-45 with a Simmons rib. The English stocks allow for much easier/quicker shouldering of the gun. P_102

The two Browning Citoris are grade 6 20 gauge Lightnings that I bought new in the mid 80s. One is a side plate, the other a boxlock. Both have luggage cases. The model 12 is a 1923 Black Diamond Trap with 30" full choke ribbed (factory) barrel. That was my father's gun that he got new in 1923. I inherited it when he passed in 1972.

It's a shame they can't stay in the family. I have a couple firearms I got from my grandfather. Nothing fancy, but it's all I have from him. None of my aunts/uncles were really outdoorsy types.

Very nice shotguns. I love the workmanship and design of beautiful doubles. The wood looks fantastic. Nice collection.
