Browning Silver Field Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Blades Shotgun

The name Browning is synonymous with no-nonsense, high-performance autoloaders having superb design with unmatched handling. And with an easily recognizable semi-humpbacked receiver silhouette, Browning’s Silver shotguns perfectly honor that historic legacy.
