A friend of mine recently inherited a 1954 12 ga. Browning Superposed from his grandfather's estate. It's in really great shape for the most part, but I suspect it may have had been re-blued at some point in its' history.

It's a field gun, but it's choked tight and tighter and patterns 90/10 with every shooter who picked it up. I guess Grandpa shot trap. the barrel shows evidence of having the cones lengthened as well.

The rib has come loose at the most rearward point where it is attached to the barrel near the chambers. We shot it some, and I felt the play in the rib increase after a modest round count of 50 or so shells.

My friend would like to have the rib repaired. We are in Arizona. The Browning approved service center list is a joke...he'd like someone who can do the job correctly, understanding that it may mean re-bluing the barrels with a rust blue.

Any suggestions?
