This is another fine gun from my friend's collection that I'm selling for his widow. He you have a very nice Browning Superposed 12 gauge O/U with very nice wood. This is a Lightning model with 30 inch barrels with an 8mm straight vent rib. These barrels were sent to Tom Wilkinson so he could work his magic on them. He back bored both barrels to .736 and put .021 constriction on the bottom barrel and .031 constriction in the top barrel making this a great doubles gun. The cost of this work was $779. The gun was then sent to Kolar and they did a Competition Mechanical Trigger Conversion to the gun at a cost of $322. Stock dimensions are 1 3/8 X 1 1/2 X 14 1/2 over the original Browning pad. Stock cast is neutral at the heel and very slight cast off for right hand shooter at the toe. The gun weighs 7 pounds 4 ounces. This is a flat knob, short tang, with the beavertail forend. There was a small crack in the forearm where Browning Superposed guns tend to crack, I had it repaired by Dave Wolf in Waco Texas and it is now invisible inside and out and will never cause a problem. I guarantee you will not be able to see the repair. Gun was built in 1969 and there is no sign of salt on the receiver or the pad screws. Forend was taken off for repair and absolutely no sign of salt on any metal surface. Wood is very nice with only a few very light marks as is the bluing. This gun as you can see from the picture of the breech face is very lightly fired. Price of the gun was $1700 now $1500 plus actual shipping charges to your FFL and comes in a Hartman case with key. Contact me at [email protected] with any questions you might have on this great Browning. Documentation of all work performed will come with the gun.

I'm interested can you please indicate the wear status? How does it "lock up" and the position of the opening lever when it is closed tightly.

I'm located in northeastern ohio and could travel a reasonable distance to look at it.

Thank You,

I would rate the condition of this gun at 97% and opening lever is well right of center. This is a beautiful gun in great condition and set up for serious trap doubles.

I'm interested...

However...Pics of the receiver without the stock would help on this model...that's where you would find salt erosion if there was any...

Thanks...Stan

Here are the pictures you requested. As you can see the inside is clean and void of any signs of rust.
