    Browning Special Trap Question

    I have a line on a Browning Special Trap with 32" bbls, 5 choke tubes, adj. comb and fitted case. It was bought new by him from a friend of mine at a gunshop in 2000 and shot one full season then put away. The guy wants $1200 which is right in my price range for my first trap gun.

    My question is......how does the price sound and any things I should look for?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like a pretty good price. Good guns.

    Don't look at anything. Buy the gun. Good price, good gun.

    Bill,
    If you don't buy this one, pass the info on. That is a very good price for a special trap w/extra's.

    By the gun before someone else does. Then, change the recoil pad to a Kick Eez.

    Ditto everything said previously, although you really want to replace the rubber pencil eraser pad with a Trapdude Gooey pad.

    That gun is a total piece of crap not even worthy to tie a rope on and use it as an anchor to keep you floating on the ducky ring in the middle of the pool. Get yourself a real gun and be done with it ... I would recommend a nice Stoeger for all your shooting needs.

    BTW ... who has the gun for sale and how would I get a hold of him if say I had some interest in going down in quality from Stoeger?

    Sorry for the delay in replying guys. Thanks for all the helpful words and I did jump on it as all of you had said to do. Great GUN! Still haven't shot straight with it but I did shoot a 96 with it last week. Recoil pad sucks like you said and a Kick EEZ is in the very near future. Thanks again for the help.
