ABAS is the trade mark of A.A.Brown.I had the pleasure of meeting the Browns In years gone by.At one time they ventured into the field of air pistol manufacture, their pistol was called the ,"ABAS".This pistol is much sought after by collectors.The Browns where/are considered by many to be the finest gunmakers ofthe post war period.In the 1970s they made acomplete sidelocks, "The Supreme;" and I mean lock, stock and barrel.My late friend,Geoffrey Boothroyd, considered Browns the best gunmakers of the era!Following bomb damage to their Whittal Sreet[? Sand Street],Birmingham location during W.W.2. The Browns worked out of the Westley Richards Bournebrook factory.
Browns made guns for most of the leading makers/Dealers prior to selling guns under their own name.In my opinion any gun made by the Browns will be of the highest Quality.Current location is 1 Snake Lane Alvechurch,Birmingham B4S7NT
