    Has anyone purchased a Browning 425 Over-Under Trap gun sold by Millers Guns? I understand he has Browning make a special gun for them. If you purchased one, are you satisfied and pleased with the gun?

    I was under the impression that Miller's Special 425's were sporting clays models only.....

    They are nice looking, but they are a Browning and in my opinion, grossly overpriced.

    I have a 425 , 20 gauge, 30 in barrels with chokes. I use them for sporting clays and have shot 3 rounds of trap with a full choke that I added. It is a light gun and moves well to the bird. I bought the gun used for $1 K and have been happy with the performance and feel. They are up to the 725 now so I do not know if 425s are still available as new . Hope this helps. Only the buyer of the item can determine what is overpriced.

    I have two 425 30" trap models I bought used, one for $1050 and the other for $1250. They had fixed chokes and .728 bores. I had a problem w/ one in that the bottom hammer axle support broke and I had to have Art's repair it as Browning voided the warranty because I had the forcing cones lengthened. Art's said it wasn't unusual as the part is thin and the nitriding process used on the receiver made the area brittle. Otherwise, I would put it up against anything else as far as value, and the fixed choke barrels handle altogether differently from a factory screw choke gun. I had one Briley choked and shoot bunker with it in lieu of a 30' FN.

    The Miller Special 425's are sporting from what I can gather. Click on the link.

    My 96 Browning catalog does not show any other 425's but a Sporting Clay model. Maybe a different year has one. break em all Jeff

    Now on a side note: I almost bought one of there 425's in 2004, but bought the 525 instead. I'm glad I did as Miller is still selling that special run they had made.
