General Specs: Browning, Year 1960, 20 Gauge, #1=6lb 5oz; #2=6lb 1oz, Chokes #1=M/F (.016/.036); #2= SK/SK (.006/.010), LOP 14 3/8", DAH 2 1/2", DAC 1 5/8" Serial Number: 18758
Superposed is one of the finest over/under shotguns in history and one of John
Browning’s most brilliant designs.
Produced in plain-jane field grades to the most elaborately engraved and
finely stocked shotguns ever seen, production of the Browning Superposed was
done in Belgium, running strong from 1931 through 1977 when traditional
production stopped. The Pointer Grade was introduced in 1960,
replacing the Grade III of the 1950’s.
The engraving pattern was nearly full coverage fine scroll and game
scene vignettes, including the long tang trigger guard. The wood was fine English walnut with notable
figure. The Pointer Grade was made in
very small numbers and is a highly sought after Superposed, especially in the
20ga. guns. This fine Pointer Grade,
sn18758 shipped in 1960, is exceptional in many ways. Documented by a detailed Browning factory
letter that accompanies the sale, this gun was ordered as a two-barrel set with
the factory hard case. The gun REMAINS
IN UNTOUCHED FACTORY MINT CONDITION, WITH NO MARKS OR WEAR EVIDENT ANYWHERE ON
THE GUN. The case is in superb condition
as well. The primary set of barrels are
the highly desirable 28” M/F field barrels and the second set is the hunting
style 26.5” set with Skeet 1 and Skeet 2 chokes (.006/.010 constrictions),
making for the perfect quail, woodcock, grouse gun for close game and tight
cover. The two-barrel set will offer
great versatility in the field or at your favorite gun club breaking clay
targets. The wood on this gun has exceptional
figure for a Pointer grade and has not been altered in any way since 1960. THE RARITY OF THIS SET MAKES FOR A SUPER
INVESTMENT GRADE FIREARM, WITH ONLY 200 OR SO POINTER GRADES MADE IN 20GA. AND
ONLY 117 IN THE LIGHTNING HUNTING STYLE CONFIGURATION. Additionally, this gun has the most desired
28” barrels and mint condition throughout.
Weighing just 6 1/4lbs. with the 28” barrels and 6lbs. with the 26.5”
barrels, this is a dynamic handling shotgun that begs to be taken afield. This gun has been shot, so there should be no
hesitation to enjoy this fine Browning for a day afield or at the clays
course. Fully documented and priced to
sell, don’t miss out on this opportunity to improve your collection of fine
Browning Superposed high-grades. Their
value is just starting to escalate again and she won’t last long! Thanks for looking.
