    They are a bit dated compared to what is available currently.

    I shoot mine at doubles with mixed results.
    I also shoot a model 12 at singles and handicap, also with mixed results.

    I was able to dress myself and put my shoes on the correct feet the first time I tried this morning. It was a good day!

    I have also seen 67 winters and don't have high expections.

    I also like the old guns and if they fit you and you have the skill, they will break every target pointed correctly.

    YES, those Belgian beauties are GREAT! Field ones and trap versions. Wish I still had mine.

    A couple years ago I saw a 90% condition 1937 12ga w/ the steel "horseshoe" on the forearm at a gun show for $600. I put it down for a minute to look at another gun as the seller took care of another customer and some dude slapped down $600 and snatched it right out from under my nose. My blood pressure still goes up a little when I think about it, LOL.

    I have 1960 Broadway that is my doubles gun that I will never sell. It has seen better days, but so have I. It can be converted from pull/pull to release/pull. I would buy another if given the chance.

    I think they are the most pleasing to the eye ,especially for the price,as any O/U ever made.I hunt with my 1952 superposed all the time.Even shoot flyers with it from time to time.

    My Broadway has been with me about 40 years. I have other trap guns, but it's the last one I'll part with. If I'm honest with myself, I have to say I shoot it about as well as I do anything else. Darn thing just works.

    1970 Browning Broadway here. If only the women in my life were as trouble free and as reliable, I would be a happy camper.

    I have a 1962 Broadway that I spent way too much money last year having it completely restored. Work done by Pylinski and no complaints or problems. Before restoration, the lever was completely to the left and touching wood and was sooo loose. Yet I never had a any problems. Now, it gets a lot of attention everywhere I go. This is my favorite gun in the dove fields as well.

    Can't beat the Superposed. I shoot a '69 Diana grade Broadway. I've considered new guns but they just don't have the heart and soul of the Superposed. Not to mention I don't like working on my gun on the tailgate of my truck...so while the new gun guys are changing springs and triggers, adjusting ribs and stocks, and trying to figure out what choke tube to use, I'm doing what I went to the range to do...shooting!

    I bought my ST-100 new in 1980. I'm still shooting it for doubles...can't think of any reason to replace it with something else. I wish they offered it with 32" bbls...I'd buy another one....(incidently, Britt Robinson shot one for a back-up gun when his K-80 broke down...)

    got 2 32" broadribs, a 64 A1 full and full and a 62 32" D5 full and full which i use when the weather is nice far to good to use in the rain that why i have 2 of them. shot a fear few 200s with them now, i have had all the others and still play but so long as you use release triggers they are great, set up right there soft and point well, if you use pull triggers i suggest you stick to the best k80 you can afford.

    I like the Superposed. I keep thinking that I need a single barrel but have not found one I love and I sure haven't seen one I think is reliable. Everytime I go to the range I see the owners of "other" shotguns working on them. I also see thread titles like: the parts are here from Italy, problems with trigger, gun siezing, barrels, ribs, grips, and stocks for sale. Am I missing something? I can't understand why so many people are having problems or making changes to their guns. I understand improvements, I change the pad on my Browning every ten years whether it needs it or not. Seriously, are the other guns worth all the trouble?

    I have a Lightning Trap 30". For years did not shoot due to recoil.
    I had forcing cones lengthened. It made the largest difference of
    any gun I have lengthened forcing cones in. I love to shoot now.
    If you have a Belgium Browning, lengthen forcing cones and shoot
    for years trouble free. Great gun!! Gary Owen

    1962 32" Broadway. No more kick than my MX3 special. Great guns.
