Hi Al, I hope you're doing great - it's been awhile...

Here are the figures I got from the Browning historian a while ago:

1987 28" (no 26" that year), qty = 73
1988 26", qty = 36
28", qty = 48
1989 26", qty = 45
28", qty = 35

total 26" = 81
28" = 156
Grand total = 237

(I got one of the 28 inchers from '1988)

** the GRIII Uplands had a total production of 30 - wish I could get my paws on one of those! Shocked

Thank you to everyone for the replies. It helps out a bunch. One question I still have is regarding production years. The owner indicated that he bought it new in 2005. Was there production in that time frame?

I have a 525, a lightning feather and a pair of grade 6 guns. Thinking a grade 3 might look nice in the mix.

Can you picture the end of the box
This will help us determine lots of things

Please insure the box and gun have matching numbers

I do not have pictures of the box. I certainly will double check the box info and compare serial numbers. The pics are definitely of a grade 3 gun.

Does your gun have grade 3 wood or does it also have the grade three engraving? If it is just a wood upgrade it could be a gran lightning.
