Browning Superposed lovers will appreciate this gun. It's a very early Browning serial number # 5762.The neat thing about it is the 32 inch barrels that are unmolested. .727 bores with chokes of .030 and .038--IM&F and so marked. The blue is very good and I think original except for the toplever and forend cap, which I believe are reblued. Some owner during the last 75 years or so thought the trigger guard should be nickeled--no accounting for taste. The barrels have a factory non- step vent rib and it is tight. The front sight is pretty cool--a composite sight with ivory in the middle of the brass sight. The gun locks up tightly and the trigger and ejectors work perfectly. The LOP is 14 inches over a non-original pad. The drops are 1 3/8 x 1 7/8 inches. Nice and high for trap or pigeons. The wood finish is thin but there and the checkering shows some wear. There is a crack in the forend on the right side--see pix. It appears tight and would be an easy fix if needed. A nifty specimen of an early Superposed that will be fun to shoot. Delivered in the lower 48 for $1035.
