Description: General Specs: Browning, Year 1965, 20 Gauge, 6lbs 8oz, Chokes IC/M, LOP 14 1/4", DAH 2 1/16", DAC 1 1/2"

Serial Number: 37028V5

The Browning Superposed has always had a devoted following. Made in Belgium for Browning Arms at the Fabrique National plant starting in 1926, likely the most well-known over/under in America through the 1980’s, the Superposed was a hand fit gun put together with care by men and women who knew what a great gun was supposed to feel like. By the 1970's Browning realized there was no profit in keeping the gun in production. Beginning in 1977, the Superposed was offered as custom order only in the Presentation series, and later in the 1980's as the B-25. The Presentation guns were ornate, but the hand engraving of years past was replaced with acid etching for all but the top grade, the P4, which was entirely hand engraved by FN master engravers. This fine Superposed, sn37028 V5 made in 1965, originated as a Grade 1 gun with the most desirable 28” IC/M barrels, and was then transformed into this work of art by Angelo Bee and his team of ex-FN factory employees. Angelo Bee is a world-renowned engraver, first as a Belgium Browning engraver and now as a custom engraver from Southern California. Angelo utilizes past FN/Browning employees for the creation of these masterpieces, so these are true Browning Superposed guns with some of the work still done in Belgium. Examine this fine Browning and you will see many features not available on a standard Browning Diana Grade, like a ROUNDED FRAME, HEAVY RAISED GOLD INLAYS RICH IN DETAIL, GOLD WIRE ACCENTS, BARREL WEDGE ENGRAVING, AND EXHIBITION GRADE ENGLISH WALNUT STOCKS. A standard Diana Grade is not near as elaborate as this fine Browning. With the price of Diana Grade 20ga. guns produced by Browning approaching $15,000, owning a Superposed of this quality would be near impossible if it weren't for Angelo. Mr. Bee’s work will continue to be highly desirable and increase in value, ranking as a quality investment vessel for your estate. There is a serious group of fine gun collectors that target work by Angelo Bee, and he is close to retiring forever. His firearms will have lasting value. Thanks for looking!
