Default Browning Double Auto Info?

Looking for the Specs on a Browning Double Auto 12ga.. Have never seen one but it sounds interesting and any cleaning problems. Which models were involved with the salt dried wood problem between 1966-71? Thanks!

Da not aroung until 1952. ended 1971.Between 1966-1971 used a salt-curing process to speed drying time needed for their walnut stock blanks.Unfortunately, the salt would be released from the wood and oxidize the metal surface(s) after a period of time.
