    Sorry if this comes across poorly. You own a computer and you have an internet connection. how is it that you are so far on the fringes of shotgun shooting that you would ask such a question is completely beyond me. I think they stopped making the Superposed more than 30 years ago!!! Win 101s made it into the 80s. then there were the "classic doubles" that stayed alive a couple more years.

    ps - what do you mean by similar? some 101s were over unders. I guess that makes them similar to the browning models.

    The Superposed was made in Belgium and it is no longer available as a regular cataloged standard grade item but it can still be ordered from the Browning Custom Shop----but the prices are very high; so high that few are sold in the US.

    The Winchester 101 was made in Japan and was a somewhat similar copy of the Browning guns but was discontinued years ago ----until just very recently.

    This will sound odd, but now Winchester has introduced a new model 101 gun that somewhat resembles the old 101 as far as the lines of the stock goes. The gun is totally different from the original and it locks up in a different manner (more like the method used by Beretta 680 series guns). Still , they are calling it the Winchester 101. There is a reveiw of the Sporting Clays model starting on page 18 in the Oct/Nov issue of ClayShooting USA. What makes it even more strange, is that this new Winchester is being made in Belgium; as now the Browning and Winchester companies are under the same umbrella as FN.

    Gary, Never mind, I was confusing the 101 and citori, everyone on this web-site does not have an attitude problem, thanks for nothing Gary, you are right it does come across poorly.

    again, sorry it comes off poorly. but you gotta admit that asking about a gun that has not been made since 1976 and comparing it to another old gun that hasn't been made for 20 years is really out there. Kind of hard to not to jump on that.

    Longhorn - Shooting registered trap and passing the time of day on a gunning web site are two very different things. A person asked a question and I responded. Perhaps my response was a bit rough, but at least I know an old gun when I see it and I also have enough integrity to put my name behind my statements.

    Just for clarification, the term superposed simply means one barrel over another barrel and refers to any over/under shotgun configuration. The term does not designate a specific model of gun such as a Belgium Browning.

    The Browning Superposed is STILL being made.....check out the custom shop section of the Browning website...the selection changes...it has never stopped being made....get your facts straight. It is a custom shop only gun now and prices start at around 20K.

    Why can't a question just be answered without all the irrelevant asides?

    Pat, You are right about the origin and meaning of the word "superposed." But Browning did indeed call their over/under the "Superposed." Jake

    Murphy I think you might be noticing the similarity between a Superposed and the 101. They both were made on the John Browning design that he and his brothers came up with around 1917. This design has been copied by many different manufactures and has stood the test of time.
