ATTENTION BROWNING COLLECTORS: Up for sale is a beautiful, ONE-OF-A-KIND, SPECIAL ORDER Belgium Browning Superposed Trap & Skeet Combination, 4-Gauge gun. This gun was manufactured in 1959, and was special ordered and purchased in Europe by a US Armed Services member, then brought into the USA at a later date. This gun features two 12 gauge barrels that are 26 1/2" & 28" long. In addition, what makes this set special is because this set also features a Very Rare Browning factory FULL-LENGTH Tube Set for the 410, 28, & 20 gauges. These tubes ARE NOT Super Tubes! Browning made a limited number of these full-length Tubes because initially Browning was considering putting these into full-scale production but determined it was too cost prohibitive at the time. So, Browning instead elected to go with the shorter Super tubes because of the reduced manufacturing cost. The tubes are stamped "PATENT PENDING", and the matching serial numbers are engraved on all of the tubes along with identification of which tube fits the top barrel. All of the ejector pieces and hardware are present so nothing is missing making it a complete set.

Another feature that makes this gun unique is the receiver and forend iron is in a beautiful Nickle Finish. This special order gun has been fired very little as evidenced by the chamber condition, and the tubes appear to be unfired. The receiver and forend iron appear as nearly new, and the two barrels retain about 98% bluing with minor wear here and there. Both barrels have separate forend wood and the wood is in excellent condition with very slight handling marks but, there is a small hairline crack in one of the forends on the end that mounts to the receiver.

This gun set comes in the original Browning factory case that is in excellent condition. The lid of this case has a block attached to one end with holes in it that holds the chamber end of the tubes, and there are metal clips mounted in the other end that hold the muzzle end of the tubes. In addition, there is a metal clip mounted in the bottom of the case that holds the tube hammer that comes with this case.

Do not miss this opportunity to grab a very unique, SPECIAL ORDER, ONE-OF-A-KIND Belgium Browning Superposed set that is in excellent condition for being 52 years old. It is hard to match the quality of these guns from that time period. $3,500.

Rod, I think you have been mis-informed. The tubes apear to be made by Purbaugh, which were the very first skeet tubes made before Briley or Kolor. If Browning made these, they would have their name on it. Purbaugh tubes were made by Claud Purbaugh of California.

David,
You wrote:"If Browning made these, they would have their name on it."

I am looking at a set of super tubes and they are not stamped Browning. They do however, have the serial number of the gun they came with stamped on the side of the tubes.

I do agree that these tubes look like Purbaugh, but Purbaugh made good tubes.

Sand, I was actually refering to the Purbaugh tubes, but I'm sure Browning had stamped or engraved their name on the Super-tubes that they made. The last set I saw was 25 years ago. The tubes (20,28, 410)were about 18 inches long and came with a soft case also included tools.
