    Looking to purchase a O/U...$2000-2200 range narrowed my choices to a Superposed Trap or XT what is the better choice..ie quality, craftsmanship etc.
    I do plan on adding an adjustable comband/or recoil reducer.

    I agree. As a current production shotgun, the XT takes the edge in my mind.

    The Superposed was a fine gun in its day but they had problems with misfires and ribs coming loose. I would buy an XT.

    I know it's not one of your choices, but a 682 would fill the bill nicely. The upside is you could add a single barrel (top or unsingle) on down the line and not have to purchase a new gun to do it.

    Between the two you mentioned the XT will probably have a better stock fit, and a little easier to sell on down the line when you want a combo.

    My Superposed ST-100 has upwards of 35K rounds through it. No misfires. Love the mechanical triggers. The roll pin holding the floating rib broke last year....bought a new roll pin at my autoparts store for 11 cents...took 10 seconds to install.The gun has unaltered bore choked IM F and smokes both doubles targets...best gun investment I ever made....JMHO

    I've got a used xt for sale that is the prettiest wood I've seen on one. It has adj. comb and 32" barrels, and I can beat the hell out of $2000. Email me if interested and I can send pics, or call me at (406)452-0094 and we will talk.

    I have used my XT for two years now. I am very familiar with the Superposed, and I like the Broadway Trap model, but I would pick the XT over the Superposed without question...better stock (adjustable), better ribs, heavier build quality (I believe the XT is stronger...some may disagree), easier takedown and cleaning, adjustable chokes, etc.

    OKAY, HAWG

    Out with the pics. Most of these guns have great wood. We old heads LOVE good wood. LOL

    As a long time shooter and gunsmith who used to collect and shoot the Belgian Supers, by all means, go with the XT. Best gun for the money. :^)

    I second the Superposed ST100. It is a variation of the usual Superposed and the rib design does away with the concern of the the rib coming detached from the barrel. Very well made.
