The Browning Express Herstal Rifle

The Browning EXPRESS HERSTAL Rifle which you have just bought is an excellent gun for Battue shooting of big game and manufactured with care by our master gunsmiths located in Herstal.

In addition to its specific qualities as a Battue rifle, where balance, instinctive shouldering and perfect swinging down, are specially noteworthy and allows you to be immediately ready for shooting. No other rifle deserves better the qualifying word: EXPRESS. The barrels are mounted with tubes provided by DELCOUR and are manufactured from the same steel as that used for the large military productions in F.N. such as LAR rifle and HP pistol. After having been tested at 3,770 bars for 8x57 JRS type and 3,900 bars for the 9.3x74R type, the accuracy and convergence of the rifle meet severe requirements and are also guaranteed by the Testing Bench in Liege. Your Express Herstal rifle has also all the characteristics which distinguish Browning guns: polished finishing, great user safety, reliability and strength for life-long service. This highly specialised rifle is primarily intended for the experienced hunter. To give its best, it needs to be used under the conditions for which it was designed.
