Title: Browning Nomad
Post by: Greasemonkey on November 23, 2019, 01:44:32 PM
Another I dug up.... it's the design that got me.. huh...imagine that....looks very much like the Colt and High Standard.. it's a Browning Nomad made in 1969...came with original book and pouch, in April 1971 it sold new out the door for $75.42. I got it less than one would pay for a new Browning Buckmark.. The Nomad was made from '62 to '74. Condition wise... it's almost mint, the blueing on the grip is perfect....the only exception is 2 small scratches on the left side of receiver. I doubt it's ever had more than a box or two through it, the mag follower shows no markings or wear.  I was kind of shocked to see proof marks still in use given the date.

One day you should take a family photo of all your Luger lookalikes if they will fit in the pic. Nice addition . I might have a mag for you. Ill dig it out and send a pic. Got it in a bundle buy last summer.

It is very smooth..just like the High Standard and Colt... Guess it would be considering the name..

Sweet shooter.
A buddy stumbled into one in similar shape.
It has a shorter barrel, like on the cover of your brochure.
