    Check out this NEW Browning Broadway Trap made in Belium by real craftsmen with actual skill!

    Am I the only one whose heart goes pitter-patter over the thought of this?

    Hmmm, 70+ views and no comments.

    I'll take that as a YES. LOL.

    You guys don't know what you're missing.

    Wonder what he means by "10% new in the box". Guess the other 90% is old in the box.

    Tell 'em, Hap.

    This is the Trap gun Howard Hughes or Frank Sinatra would have bought.

    1973, that looks new in the box. That alone is impressive. Then make it a Belgium Browning Lightning Superposed Broadway Trap, with the like new box, and I guess I have to say that is rare. The pictures are so clear it almost looks like it is just manufactured this year.

    I think he left a 0 off the 10% new remark. It sould read 100%.

    Now this is what I want...

    and, I'd like my '63 broadway superposed to regale me with stories of the trapshoots it participated in long before I acquired it...

    sometimes new just doesn't have that cachet for me...

    looks nice though..!

    I had a broadway and I wish I never sold it. That is a great gun but I wouldn't have the heart to shoot it because there are so few that are NIB. His price I would say is alittle high.

    Yeh, and the best car I ever had was my 55 Chevy. Com'on guys. The gun
    kicked like a mule. By that time everybody was getting the Perazzi over and unders.

    The Browning Citori XT is a better gun the the Broadway Browning ever was.

    Dickgtax,

    You have to eat your Wheaties. I'm shooting a 41yo Broadway and it doesn't kick at all, of course it doesn't have a factory stock any more either.

    I'll have to agree with dickgtax. The Citoris are more pleasant to shoot than the Belgium guns.

    The Belgium guns may have the edge on quality???

    First gun I ever shot Trap with was a borrowed Lightning. Beautiful gun, but beat me to death. My shoulder was case colored for a week.



    Regards....Gerald

    I can shoot most guns but do not hand me a new Winchester. They will beat the hell out of for what reason. If an older Win I'm fine.

    The Broadway was not a bad gun to shoot as far as I'm concerned.

    Mine is a 1964 (non-broadway). My dad bought it (new) for me for my 15th birthday (I'm now 61). A few years back, the rib came loose. Took it in and reminded the smith, an authorized Browning smith, that it had lifetime warranty...he laughed and said I had to be the original owner with the original warranty "credit card"...I showed it to him and he fixed it, no charge.

    Look -- the high bid went up almost 50% right after I posted this last night. I should get a commission! Packman 13 had the good sense to jump in on this sweet old Belgian beauty.

    Today I just unboxed a Browning O/U that belongs to one of the guys on my company trap team.

    The gun was a beater, I mean beat to hell. I had shipped it over to Phil Filing at Glenrock Blue in Glenrock, WY.

    I was ABSOLUTELY astounded in the work Phil & Doug did to restore this Belgium gun to factory-like condition. I was so thrilled that I called my buddy and told him I'd have it reassembled and in his hands next week during out Fun Shoot. I also told him he'd better be looking for new wood, because by the looks of this redo, his present wood is a joke.

    Nice gun here on this thread too. I, too, started by trapshooting career with a borrowed Broadway.

    Did that borrowed Broadway you starter with "kick like a mule" as Dickgtax said? Or did it FIT you?
