    I have a 525 about 15/16 years. Shoots well for me and I do a bit I’ve everything. The only thing is with the 525/Miroku the pins will need replacing sooner or later, aside from that the actions are bombproof.
    As for the difference between browning and miroku .. well they’re both Miroku. Browning is only a brand name,the Belgian guns are a bit different In design. There is also a browning fishing brand and that stuff is not very good at all.

    Browning also own, or did own, Winchester. They were assembling rifles in Portugal and they weren't brilliant. The Browning O/U is a time proven design, apart from messing around with the styling, its basically the same gun for 100 years.

    From memory they are about 1600-1700 sterling new. So about 1800-1900 euro before import fees I reckon.


  • Registered Users Posts: 394 ✭✭ useurowname


    Not bad
    Pity about import fees


  • Registered Users Posts: 225 ✭✭ paulireland


    Under €1900 :)

    Thats not bad Paul. Are you getting a left hand one?


  • Registered Users Posts: 225 ✭✭ paulireland


    They dont do left hand in Europe :(

    Thats lunacy, discrimination to 10% of the population. Really surprised to hear that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 225 ✭✭ paulireland


    Australia and NZ they do loads of different models and left handed as well


  • Registered Users Posts: 225 ✭✭ paulireland


    Maybe Browning insist they only do right handed:)

    It's not a huge problem to have the top leaver the "wrong" way once the stock fits.


  • Registered Users Posts: 225 ✭✭ paulireland


    So push with left thumb rather than pull with right :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 225 ✭✭ paulireland


    Sorry is it the other way around


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,184 ✭✭✭ Rosahane


    Sorry is it the other way around

    Yes, it goes from centre to right normally.

    It's not difficult to use your left hand, it just needs a slight repositioning of the hand position which isn't required for a right hand user.


  • Registered Users Posts: 225 ✭✭ paulireland


    Im sure its no problem:)

  • Registered Users Posts: 225 ✭✭ paulireland

    Enjoy, and best of luck with it. Come up to Hilltop some Weds evening and put it through its paces.

    I honestly can't remember since it's so long since I've been able to go up. Maybe around €17 for the compact with two boxes of cartridges ???

    Members rate is very reasonable - there was a thread about it here a year or so ago and I think Hilltop was the best value with cartridges included.

    Hi all
    Some practical questions on cleaning and storage
    Is WD40 good for cleaning the bores as its less aggressive than some solvents
    Do you store the gun dis assembled in the safe
    If assembled is it best to store it barrel down
    Any thoughts from you experienced chaps :)

    The only thing i have ever found wd40 good for, is machining aluminium. After that i find it useless. Buy a proper bore solvent.


  • Registered Users Posts: 225 ✭✭ paulireland


    Fair enough
