    The only con would be that you can't change the chokes. Beside that nothing.

    I have shot a Browning Superposed ST-100 for 32 years...it's rib is as wide as a Broadway but with adjustable POI....same B-25 action as the Broadway...superb doubles gun. FYI, the Legendary Britt Robinson always carried his Broadway as a back-up to his K-80. He was shooting it when he shot on my squad in 1990 at the MT. State Shoot.

    Well, put a softer pad on it. And get one made with mechanical triggers. And, when you end up beating all your buddies shooting those 10k guns just don't make 'That face" as you walk away with a better score. They know. But people will always be inclined to pay for a better score. Heck, they are great guns. But, in the end, it comes down to natural ability. Every gun I ever shot, had a straight barrel. The only difference I ever had was if I was really upset with my wife or girl. Shot bad, worse than usual. But hey, isn't that a better excuse than the wind blowing? Ahh, you guys don't care. I'm still going to see you on the line and me with my BB trap. Hey, your good. I'm good. Well, as Dirty Harry once said: Do ya feel lucky punk? Be afraid. Be very afraid! lol Jim

    Amazing guns...and getting hard to find, especially in 32". REALLY tough to find one that hasn't been fussed with. Hand fit and operates like a dream, a gun no one could afford to make today. And at current prices, buy one and keep it for good. Just a fine gun.

    Well, this thread has just given me an idea! I have a Browning Broadway that has not been shot hardly any at all (about 99% perfect I think)and I can't seem to find a buyer for it, at my price at least.

    Therefore, I think I will start shooting doubles with it as it has 30 inch barels and my MX-8 has 32 inch barrels.

    So what, I might lower the value a bit by shooting it, but its my gun and I think I will try some doubles with it and see if my scores are any better than with the MX-8.

    Thanks, Allen

    I use a 30" Lightning model which has the narrow rib. I like the narrow rib,especially for a one eye shooter. It has Kolar mechanicals & Wilkinson bbls set for Gold Medal EL factory loads. It is otherwise as from the factory & very low recoil. I would suggest a 32" bbl with the narrow rib. Yes I have my choice of my K & P guns & the Ljutic Bi that I own,but this one is the equal of any. I think they are a much better made & handling gun than the same in a Citori,heresy that that is.

    And this is the Allem release

    The 72 to 77 guns were mechanical triggers. But the inertia triggers worked fine too.

    There are a couple of nice grade VI on the forum for sale right now. Minnapolis GC has a Doozy.

    I have a 32" Broadway with mechanical triggers and love it. It is un-molested except for the replacement butt pad.

    I bought a new Broadway 32" in 1962 for $365 & still have it. I won the Lancaster County Hi Resident Doubles trophy in 1972 with it. I am going to get buried with it. lol

    I have a 1972 Broadway factory fixed chokes and love it, all I have had to do is replace the springs.
