    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!:confused:

    The DA (Double Automatic) was discontinued BEFORE the salt problem started. Which was in1967.

    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.

Serial # A4532.They made them from 1955-1971.Only 67,000 D.A ever made. Mine is eighter a 1955,1956 or 1957. Mine is called a browning double auto light.Before the called them "Twelvettes".
