RR, that is a Miroku made gun, one of a limited edition classic series with the higher grade wood and traditional trimmings. Kind of the 45 Colt counterpart to our 2000 year vintage Classic in 22 LR. I added the tang peep and globe to ours, but there were some sold with these as a factory setup. Since that one has the Browning label, it would have been made prior to FN acquiring both Winchester and Browning, though it is still a Miroku by any other name. After FN took over, the Low Walls wear the Winchester label.

At least that Browning doesnt have that high gloss coating on it. Thats the only thing I dont care for on the Brownings.

Yep. Didn't care for that type of finish eitherAl. That one looks nice.

I'm another one who never liked that gloss finish Browning has used on most of their guns.
