    I had one, but my grandson now has it!

    Parts made in Belgium and assembled in Portugal.

    Nice gun ... soft recoil!

    very well constructed, soft shooting target crusher. The bolt release will wear a hole in your finger; so using the side port to load is better IMO. The side port loading is a little awkward at first, but you can get accustomed to it. Fit and finish are excellent as well.

    Years ago I had a friend who owned one in trap grade. Can't remember for sure, but think it had a 32" barrel. It was a very nice looking shotgun. I remember that he would load his through the loading port on the left side while shooting trap.

    I owned a 12 gauge 28" field model for several years. It was a great shotgun...handled exceptionally well, and very well made. I traded it for an Browning A-5, which was a decent gun, but not nearly as lively or responsive in the hands.

    Nice B2000's seem to sell for around $500.

    You will need 2 barrels if you want to shoot 2 3/4 or 3 in If it has a 3in barrel then you will have to hand eject the 2 3/4 s keep well lubed at the gas piston

    Real nice gun for the money. We used to sell a lot of them in our store, nice quality gun-very few problems.

    I have had a B-2000 for 34 years. I shot trap with it back in the early 80's. I was able to get a shell catcher at the time. Once in a while on light loads the action would slam back on the hull in the catcher. Since it is gas operated you will need to clean it often. It weighs less than my XT and is a breeze to shoot. Unlike the newer Browning automatics (GOLD, Silver and Maxus) it is a little heavier since it is made from steel and not alloy. I also have a Winchester SX2 which is essentially the same as a Browning Silver. The Winchester is a more reliable action. After several years in the marsh hunting ducks in all kinds of weather, I have never had a jam. I could not say that about my B-2000.

    One thing not mentioned is that they have a long reach on the trigger, might be an issue for short fingered people. Other than that I like them. Who says Browning never made a good semi-auto since the A5?

    I had several in 32" inch Bbls, hard if not impossible to get a release for. I sold one of mine to a friend and he shot Big Ass shells in it for years and never a break down.

    Both were Trap Models.

    Excellent gun should be priced from $500-$650 in very good condition. Most were M/C Stocks if not all.

    They take a beating and keep on ticking like a TIMEX.

    Just sold one to my son that I picked up. Am looking for another one.
