    Would like some opinion on the Browning B27 plus and minus. Don't seem to see a lot of them, how do they compare to the older supperposed? Thanks.

    You don't see too many because they were only in production for 3 years --- (1973 to 1975) and had a total production of about 10,000 guns.

    When the Superposed was getting too expensive to produce in Belgium, Browning tried two different approaches --- one being the B-27, which was a similar but somewhat cheaper gun to produce as the design was changed and it was assembled in Portugal; and the second being the Japan produced Citori guns.

    The B-27 was still expensive to produce and shooters did not think that it was the same quality as the original, so it did not sell well. The Citori was the success story as Browning recently made the 1 millionth Citori.

    As far as the quality of the B-27's, they are decent enough guns in their own right. One of the biggest differences between them and the Superposed is the way the forearms attach, with the B-27 being easily removable like most modern over/unders, while they stay attached on the Superposed. There is very little collector value in them --- I imagine a new unfired model in the box would bring a price but not the average used field gun. I have run into a couple within the last year that were in good clean condition and they were being sold at retail for about $895.
