    special run from Gun's Unlimited, Omaha, NE. 20 gauge with 32" ported barrels and the terrific target grade high-post rib. Can't wait to try this sucker out...

    Makes you wonder if Browning had excess stock laying around all these years ... or actually got the tooling fired up and running .... for a special run. Either way - nice to see some new guns of this model hitting the public.

    No excess stock. The original was 12 gauge only. The new ones are available in 12/20/28/410. Frame sizes match the gauge. Completely new machining...

    Too bad they didn't make it in the 16ga. I'd be forced to buy one!

    Nice. Looks 'spensive. Wish I could afford one in .410.

    Hitapair, this is a dedicated sporting clays target gun. How many manufacturers build said guns in 16 gauge!?! Answer, none...

    I haven't read anything on these guns yet.

    Anyone know the reason behind the 32" barrels???...Just curious.

    By the way, very nice.



    Regards....Gerald

    Slugo - you're killing me. I have one of the original 12ga versions of this gun and I shoot is as well as any gun I have ever owned. The high post rib is what makes it awesome. Bad time to be gun poor.

    Slugo, did those extended chokes come with the gun? If not, what did?

    Slugo, Enjoy your new gun!!! Looks like a keeper to me. Let us know how you like it after you try it once or twice. I'd bet the 28 ga. is sweeeeeet. break em all Jeff
