Looks like a browning Auto 5.
I borrowed one to go deer hunting in a shotgun zone once. The gun was reliable when I test fired it, but stuff was flying out of the action. I took a look and realized there was moss growing in the action.
The A5 is a pretty damn reliable gun considering.. haha
Remember my old cadet captain talking about how he dragged one through vietnam for a year or so with the Kiwis. Said something along the lines of it being more reliable than having two AK's and the only time it failed to fire was when he'd stuffed the round count up and thought there was one in there.
