Rhodesian A5 Shotgun.

Rhodesian A5 Shotgun

Some folks on Facebook saw we have a Rhodesian Army, Browning A5 shotgun and inquired about it. 

These were ordered through FN in Belgium. Shipped to South Africa. And then smuggled into Rhodesia. Violating international sanctions. 

Which is how they came to be serialized with electric pencil instead of traditional stamping. Or you could split hairs and call these marks rack numbers. 

Either way, it’s an interesting story. So here’s an updated video for Andy and Jordan. Good luck in your search.
