    I just purchased (on another site) a 1965 Superposed 12 ga Grade I Lightning w/ 28" bbls choked MF. The seller rated the gun 98% and from the pics I would agree. Correct LOP with factory buttplate.

    What is your opinion of this particular year,model, bbl length etc? This will be my first Superposed so any and all information (good or bad) is welcomed. thanks.

    They were great guns in their time---Your mdl with a 28" bbl is probably a field mdl and not the best for trap---gL---At 98% is really great at that yr---George

    I have a 1953 Superposed Trap, that is a great gun. I'm sure you'll love yours.

    Those old Belgian beauties were great guns in their day. And they are still great guns today. Plus you can get good deals on them now. Take good care of it. It's already 50 years old which means that it might only last another six or eight generations.

    Enjoy your fantastic shotgun and don't be overly concerned about what anybody else thinks of it.
