Not asking whether a single defective gun ever escaped the Browning folks...

But asking, "Has Browning ever designed and marketed a bad shotgun ?"

Superposed

BT-99

Citori

BSS Side-by-Side

Auto-5

BPS pump

etc.


Don't recall anyone ever complaining too much about a Browning.

I'll go along with the A500s. However the Double Auto/twelvette/twentyweight are not junk. Other than the real A5 they are the only browning auto I will shoot. Handle great, shoot good and don't break.

They made one called the Double Auto. It was a nice looking gun. My grandfather bought one. It gave him a bloody nose shooting it after shooting one round of trap. It wasn't one of his favorites.

I bought an A500R in 1988 and it still works just fine in all weather for hunting but I admit that it does not get a lot of shells through it. I never had a problem with a Citori or any of the BT-99s that I owned either.

I was really surprised that some said something about the double auto and twelvevette. I had never seen one and bought one from an acquaintence a few years ago and tried it our on a skeet field and shot a 96. I still have never had it to malfunction in any way. Jackie B.
