    Just aquired a 12ga Browning Superposed O/U 30" mod/full, in original Browning hard case, with hang tags (price on hang tag is $225.00) ser no 118xx which places it in the mid 30's production. took it out to shoot it and it does not reset the inertia block to fire the second barrel.It will fire either top or bottom by the selector switch. was using 3 dram trap loads. Can this trigger be converted to mechanical? If so any idea what the cost would be and who would you reccommend to do it? It is a very nice gun with the only thing dededucting from original is someone cut the butstock then lenghtened it again using black spacers,did a good job though. Any Help appreciated

    Thanks,

    Chuck H

    99 times out of a 100 it just needs to be cleaned. To remove the stock , make sure you have perfect fitting screwdrivers. Jeff

    The Browning Superposed requires recoil to reset the hammers, lite shells, dirty/gummy internal parts or soft recoil pad could be the problem...Rick

    Took it appart and cleaned it real well it did have old gummy and hardened oil in the internals. Sprayed it with Break Clean and lightly oiled with Rem Oil. will function test later today.

    Thanks

    Enjoy your Superposed, but pay regular attention to the chambers after shooting. Superposed are notorious for flash rust in the chambers. I have a '65 Broadway and I have found that a light spray of Rem Oil and placing a wooly snap cap in each chamber after use keeps them nice.

    Will do Jay,
    The bores and chambers on this are absolutely mirror like in finish. the gun is still tight upon opening, and internals show very little wear patterns. looks like it sat in someones closet for quite some time. at least the bores and chambers were cleaned and oiled before storage. I have a couple of fuzzy snap caps I am going to use. no rust anywhere and will keep it that way.

    Thanks
