SUPERLIGHT, NEW, LEATHER CASE, 6LBS., 1 OF 2500

General Specs: Browning, Year 1986, 20 Gauge, 6lbs, Over Under

Serial Number: P33BC0762

The Browning Superposed is world renowned as one of the finest over/under shotgun designs in history and one of John Browning’s most prolific shotguns. The Superposed has been produced almost continuously since 1931 in plain jane field grades to the most elaborately engraved and finely stocked shotguns ever seen. The main production for the Browning Superposed was done at the Fabrique Nationale plant in Belgium, running strong from 1931 through 1976 when production stopped. The Superposed then became a “custom shop” only gun, still at FN Belgium, and still in limited production today. This Browning Superposed Classic, snP33BC0762, was made in 1986, the only year of production for this model. The factory had intended to make 5000 of these fine little guns, as it is engraved “ONE OF FIVE THOUSAND”, however only about 2500 were ever made. Some of the parts were made in Japan, which by 1986 had been become known for producing the finest steels and precision parts in the world. These parts were shipped to the FN plant in Belgium where the guns were hand fit, assembled, and hand engraved, stocked, and checkered by the world-famous FN craftsman. Built as a “SUPERLIGHT”, the guns are delightful in hand at 6lbs., much lighter than the usual Superposed O/U. With the 26” fixed choke IC/M barrels made in Japan, they are steel shot capable if that is your choice. This gun is brand new, likely fired a few times but not a mark on the gun anywhere. It is housed in a premium full leather case with brass corners that adds over $1000 value to the set. The gun functions perfectly and has mirror perfect bores and great shooting dimensions. The hand-engraved receiver is stunning, as is the wood, making this the perfect bird gun for your upcoming season and a gun that you will be proud to show off at the local gun club. Browning Superposed SUPERLIGHT 20ga. guns have always been highly prized and collectible, and with one year only production, this gun will gain in value as you enjoy its use. Compared to earlier engraved Superlight guns, the price is an exceptional value. Thanks for looking!
