Description: Belgium Browning, Year 1962, 20 Gauge, 6lbs 6oz, SN# 24373

The Browning Superposed was the first prominent over/under introduced to the USA. Beginning in 1931, the Superposed action has been used in the field and at gun clubs with over 88 years of proven, rock-solid performance. These are hand-fitted, quality guns made one at a time by skilled craftsman that are a dying breed. This fine Pigeon Grade Superposed Lightning in 20ga., sn24373 built in 1962, has hard to find IC/M chokes and marked as such, making it a much more desirable gun than a similar gun with Skeet chokes which are more common and have the bulky beavertail style forend. As you compare this gun to others, keep in mind that the most desirable Superposed guns are the long tang, round knob guns built before 1965, like this one. This 6lb. 5oz. gun is all factory original and still retains 98% overall condition with the barrel blue a solid 99%, action and trigger guard retain about 98% French grey; and wood 99% original finish with a few light hunting marks but no cracks or repairs. The gun also retains the original 14 ¼” LOP to the factory buttplate, another strong point for this gun. Browing Superposed guns with pads are much less desirable and hard to sell in the future. The Pigeon Grade came from the factory with nice hand cut engraving, deep chiseled oak leaf engraving in the top of the action, pigeons in flight, and nice floral bouquets on the bottom. The Pigeon Grade also came with nicely figured French walnut stocks, and this gun will not disappoint in that department as it has nicely figured wood. Guns built after 1965 were prone to salt contamination and rust because of the manner which Browning cured their wood. The marketplace has an aversion to the later guns with short tangs and/or square knob pistol grips. The early guns like this one are highly desirable. THIS IS A VFI CERTIFIED GUN WITH A 90 DAY MECHANICAL WARRANTY, having been stripped to its smallest parts, each part inspected for function and integrity, properly lubricated and reassembled. This is a $275 service in our shop, and YOU WILL NOT LIKELY FIND ANOTHER WHERE THIS SERVICE HAS BEEN PERFORMED, let alone another 57-year-old gun with a 90-day warranty! This is a great upland gun that is balanced to perfection and at 6lbs. 5oz. light enough to carry all day afield. With the factory 3” chambers you can even chase tough game with magnum loads. The value of these earlier Superposed guns continues to climb, so you can invest in this gun and enjoy its use as it gains value. If you want a vintage Browning hardcase to go with the gun we have a few in excellent condition for an added $300 or so.
