The Browning Superposed is one of the finest over/under shotguns in history and one of John Browning’s most prolific designs.  Produced in plain jane field grades to the most elaborately engraved and finely stocked shotguns ever seen, production of the Browning Superposed was done in Belgium, running strong from 1931 through 1977 when regular production stopped.  It was in that year FN of Belgium took ownership of the Browning Arms Corp. and became the sole producer of the famous Superposed Browning.  A lot changed as they tried to turn an unprofitable endeavor into a profitable one.  This era became the era of the Presentation Grade offerings in the Browning Superposed line.  Most of these guns no longer had the fine hand engraving that the Superposed was known for, but instead were acid etched engraved with the resulting lack of detail and beauty.  Only the highest grades received the hand engraving from the master engravers that makes them so valuable to the shooter/collector today.  This fine Browning is a SPECIAL SPORTING MODEL, the B2G, that is fully hand engraved by Claudia Perfido (signed by her) and was stocked with highly figured French walnut.  It was imported into the USA by Browning in 1986 and is one of the higher grades that came here from the European market (BUT WITH AMERICAN STYLE STOCK).  These B2G models are highly desirable and have unique features, ie. the action is rounded like the coveted Super Light, field choked and weighing just 7lbs. 1oz. with 27 ½” barrels, a graceful slim forend with a slight Schnabel flair at the end, long tang trigger guard, and way nicer wood figure than what was being shipped on the Presentation grade guns.  This gun, sn8H3PT40033 built in 1986, is in superb factory original condition, still retaining 96% of the French grey on the action and trigger guard with only a small loss under the top lever, 96% factory blue on the barrels, and an excellent hand rubbed oil finish with minor handling marks.  Balanced perfectly 1/8” ahead of the hinge pin, this gun is almost ½ pound lighter than the 12ga. Superposed Lightning!  That makes a difference by the end of the day, and it is a very desirable feature for the upland bird hunter.  This gun is in superb mechanical condition with strong ejectors, crisp trigger, perfect bores, still nice and tight on the hinge pin and breech face with the lever right of center.  See the specs below.  This grade of Browning Superposed is rarely encountered, so don’t miss out on owning one of the few that comes up for sale.  Thanks for looking!
