Used Guns


HA2256 Browning Cynergy CX Synthetic, Universal, 12 Ga., 2 3/4" & 3" 30"MC Bbls, (Used 99%), $1,395

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Hero's Arms Says:  Note: The photos on this page are not the actual gun. Since it has a synthetic stock the photos look alike for any Cynergy Synthetic. The Data Table is for this gun. This Cynergy Synthetic CX was built in 2016 and has been used, but the only indication is that the mid-bead sight has been replaced. The synthetic pistol grip and forearm are covered with Dura Touch which gives an excellent grip.  It accepts 2 3/4" and 3" shells in its 30" Invector Plus choke barrels.  Its rib has a slight forward slope so it shoots 60% above point of aim, 40% below, making it useful for all target sports. It comes with three Midas Grade Invector Plus choke tubes in Full, Modified and Improved Cylinder, and Hero's Arms has added a Midas Grade Skeet Choke.   The ambidextrous comb of the stock can be raised in 1/8" increments by pushing out a pin and sliding the comb forward, then back over a different groove.  It can also be replaced with a comb which gives cast on for a left handed shooter, or cast off for a right handed shooter.  It currently has a 14 1/8" Length of pull, and a spacer for 14 3/8", but with a different recoil pad and spacer combination it can go from 13 3/4" to 15 1/2". The trigger can be adjusted for large or small hands. This gun could be used by a 5 foot 13 year old and can still fit when she is a 6'5" basketball player. Because it has a true mechanical trigger sub-gauge tubes could be installed without trigger modifications. It can be used for anything, upland hunting, waterfowl, skeet, sporting clays or trap, truly a one gun solution. Because it is used the price has been reduced by $100.

HA2573 Browning BT99, Single Shot Trap, Ambidextrous, Adjustable Comb, Adjustable Butt Plate, 12 Ga., 2 3/4", 34"MC,  (Used 97%) $1,395

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Browning Says:  NEW FOR 2017 - Fit-customizable single shot, break action, trap shotgun. Graco Pro Fit adjustable comb and butt pad plate. High-post ventilated floating rib. Beavertail forearm. Because proper fit is vital to a serious shooter. How do you take a solid trap gun like the BT-99 and make it even better? Make it incredibly comfortable to shoot using proven adjustable components. We added a Graco adjustable comb and butt pad plate in order to give you a solid customizable fit and feel so you can focus on hitting 25 in a row every time. The right tool for the job. The Browning BT-99 is built to do one thing -- dust clays at the trap range. Shooters of every ability put their trust in the BT-99 because it has the features needed to help them excel, and the toughness to endure hours of shooting and thousands of shells year after year.

Hero's Arms Says: This Browning BT99 Adjustable-Comb Adjustable Butt Plate Trap gun was built in 2017 and shot less than 1000 shots, but it picked up numerous small scratches and dings in the wood which reduce its condition to 97%, and the price considerably.  It was traded in because the owner wanted two shots for a different game. It is designed specifically for trap shooting, it has no safety (safety is assured by only loading and closing the gun when your turn has come and you are standing on the pad).  It has a 34" barrel with one Improved Modified Choke Invector Plus choke tube (of course other Invector Plus chokes are easily available).  It has an Extractor, what the English call a "Lifter", so your shells don't get ejected on the ground.  It has a wide "beaver tail" forearm for a good grip and recoil control.  It has no palm swell but the comb can be adjusted for both left and right handed shooters so it is truly ambidextrous.  The Butt Plate can be Canted, Raised or Lowered to insure a perfect fit.   It has no engraving,  no porting (there is no second shot) - it is just a solid, last-forever Trap gun for shooting year after year.  The surface dings make it an exceptional buy.

HA2558 Blaser F3 Sporting Combo, O/U 12 Ga., 2 3/4" & 3", 30MC Bbls.,  & O/U 20 Ga., 2 3/4" & 3", 30MC Bbls, (Used 99.9%), $5,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Hero's Arms Says:  This lightly used Blaser F3 Sporting was a trade in for a gun to replace a gun which had gone missing.   It is in excellent condition, only a few tiny impressions in the wood of the beautifully figured stock reduce its condition to 99.9%.  It comes with a total of 14 Blaser and Briley Spectrum Choke tubes, in 12 Ga. F/F/IM/M/IC/SK/SK, in 20 Ga. IM/M/M/LM/LM/IC/IC, and others are available from Briley..  The gun has a 14 3/8" Length of Pull and a stock with no cast, but a right hand palm swell.  In 12 Ga. it weighs 8 pounds, in 20 Ga. 8 pounds 3.5 ounces.  This gun could be used for Skeet, Sporting Clays, Trap and upland or waterfowl hunting. An excellent example of German engineering at an excellent price

HA2328 SKB Century III Trap, Right Hand, Adjustable Comb-LOP-Butt Plate, Break Action, 12 Ga., 2 3/4" 34"MC Bbl., (Used 99+%), $1,295

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

SKB Says:  The Century III is a specialized Trap shotgun for singles and handicapped events. From the XLT pad to the muzzle, the Century III is constructed from performance based components and design features that will enable the shooter to develop their skills to compete at the next level of competition. The Century III barrel features 2 3/4" chamber, lengthened forcing cone, fitted with the competition series choke tube system and equipped with a shell extractor. The finished barrel has a highly polished chrome interior, jeweled monobloc and matte black chrome exterior. The sighting plane is a 10mm top ventilated rib with a matte surface and target sights. Offered with 30, 32, or 34 inch barrel with either Reduced or Standard length stock. The Century III steel receiver; is a low profile box lock action with a bright blue finish. The trigger geometry is designed to lift the sear tail vertically, which releases the hammer with less trigger travel and pull weight, providing the shooter with a crisp, responsive feel. The coil spring system are designed to provide years of reliable power. The Century III is equipped with a manual safety.
 

Hero's Arms Says:  This gun was shot a few times and traded in for an over/under.  It has picked up a couple of small dings, which I photographed, otherwise the rest are the original photos. It is a wonderful trap gun.  It can fit just about any right handed shooter from 5' to 6' tall with a Length of Pull that varies between 13 7/8" and 15 1/8".  It has a right handed palm swell.  It has about a 3/16" cast off. With its 8 pound 12 ounce weight and decelerator recoil pad you can shoot it all day.  It comes with three SKB Competition Choke Tubes in Full, Improved Modified, and Modified constrictions and others can be ordered from SKB.  The Butt Plate can be raised or lowered or canted for comfort for men and women.  It has very nice wood.  It is hard to find a trap gun at three times the price with these features.

HA1699 SKB 85TTR Competition Trap Undersingle, Adjustable CombAdjustable-Rib, U/S  12 Ga., 2 3/4" & 3" 34"MC  (Used 99.8%), $1,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This SKB 85TTR Competition Trap Undersingle has been very gently used, the only indication is a tiny mark on the left side of the stock.  It comes with all the original paperwork, chokes and tools, in a fitted SKB Case.  I have not re-photographed it except for the tiny mark as it is all as it was when first sold. The wood is darker than it appears in these older photos, it is the color of the photo of the tiny mark. The 34" Undersingle barrel  has a 3" chamber for 2 3/4" & 3" shells, and comes with a SKB Competition Trap Full choke (Extra Full) for handicap distances, Full and Improved Modified.  The Adjustable Rib on the Undersingle can move the pattern from 50/50 to 90/10.  The unique features of Japanese SKB shotguns would, and do, take up an entire page - click here to see them.   Though SKB is no longer in business in Japan, the American Importer,  SKB Shotguns of Omaha, Nebraska provides the service and has spare parts for 20 years.  They have repaired an older (out of warranty, imported by another importer) SKB for one of my customers and did a quick and professional job at a very reasonable cost.  This gun is an excellent value for a competition Trap Undersingle with adjustable comb and rib..

HA2505 Browning Citori CX, O/U, 12 Ga., 2 3/4" & 3", 32"MC Bbls., (Used 99.5%), $1,695

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Browning Says:  •RECEIVER – Steel; High polished blue; New Citori CX logo on sides of receiver in gold. •BARREL – Lightweight profile; High post rib; Ventilated top and side ribs. •POI – 60/40 point of impact, suitable for all target disciplines. •ACTION – 12 gauge, 3” chamber; Chromed chamber. •STOCK – Grade II American walnut, Gloss finish; Inflex recoil pad. •FEATURES – Vector Pro lengthened forcing cones; Three Midas grade extended Invector-Plus choke tubes (F,M,IC); Triple Trigger System with one trigger supplied; Ivory front and mid bead sights.           
 

Hero's Arms Says:  This shotgun was sold a month ago and has had eight boxes of shells fired through it in the last few weeks.  The barrels at 32" were too long for the shooter, when he carried at his waist level they almost touched the ground.  It has a tiny mark on the left side of the receiver about half way up over the "r" in Citori, which reduces its condition to 99.5% and the price by $100. It is an all around shotgun, good for skeet, sporting clays, trap or hunting.  And, it is very reasonably priced.  It has a 14 1/4" Length of Pull, slightly adjustable by moving the trigger forward or back, .  It weighs 8 pounds 0.5 ounce, which will soak up the recoil from a day's shooting or a heavy hunting load.  The high vent rib has a distinct forward slope giving it a 60/40 point of impact (60% of the shot is above the point of aim, 40% below allowing for "floating" the target.)  It comes with three Midas Grade extended Invector Plus Choke tubes in Full, Modified and Improved Cylinder.  It has a right hand palm swell, but no cast.  It is not ported so could easily be used for hunting.

HA1729 Browning Cynergy Classic Trap Combo, Adjustable-Comb, O/U, 12 Ga., 2 3/4", 32"MC, & Unsingle, 12 Ga., 2 3/4", 34"MC, Adjustable-Rib, (Used 98%) $3,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Browning Says: Description: Receiver - Steel • Silver nitride finish • Ultra-low profile • MonoLock Hinge. Barrel - Double and single barrel sets included • Lightweight profile over and under barrel set • Single barrel set features an Unsingle Rib for fine tuning of rib angle for sight picture and point of impact adjustments • Ported. Action - Reverse Striker ignition system • Impact Ejectors • Top-tang barrel selector/safety. Stock - Gloss finish Monte Carlo Grade III/IV walnut stock with right-hand palm swell • Modified semi-beavertail forearm with finger grooves. Features - Four Invector-Plus™ Midas™ Grade choke tubes (three full & one improved modified) • HiViz® Pro-Comp fiber-optic sight

Hero's Arms Says:  I sold this gun in 2014 and it was just traded back in.  It has a few dings, which are shown close-up in photographs, which reduce its condition to 98% (and its price by $1,000). This is a serious trap gun.  With its adjustable comb and adjustable trigger it can be adjusted to fit to right or left handed shooters of a range of heights and body styles.  The adjustment knob on the Unsingle rib allows for moving the point of impact to fine tune performance.  At 8 pounds 13 oz the Over/Under is heavy enough for a day of doubles.  The Unsingle is a bit lighter at 8 pounds 7 ounces, still enough weight to swing and tame recoil.. The forward sloping comb means that recoil drops the stock away from your cheek.  The low profile Cynergy receiver is particularly well suited for a trap gun. It comes in an aluminum travel case which shows signs of wear, but protects the gun.

HA2458 Beretta 687EELL, Diamond Pigeon, O/U, 12 Ga., 2 3/4" &3", 28"MC Bbls., (Used 97%), Cased, $3,795

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Beretta Says:  687 EELL Diamond Pigeon: Luxury and Performance  The 687 EELL is the absolute top of the line of Beretta’s 680-series over-under shotguns. It features sideplates that act as extra canvas for the lavish hand-chased engraving, as well as a specially-selected walnut stock that gives it a true heirloom quality. But while it certainly figures well while on display, the Diamond Pigeon’s worth as a game gun is equally striking. Weighing about 7 lbs (12-ga version), and with the point of balance right at the hinge-pin, it is a shotgun that comes up naturally to the shoulder while still having enough of a lively feeling forward of the supporting hand. This is an over-under with the feel and allure of a classic, for the discriminating hunter who appreciates all the finer points of a perfectly-made gun.  Premium Hand-Chased Engraving, Premium Stock The full sideplates of the 687 EELL feature a super-fine classic game scene, and are enhanced by intricately detailed motifs of branches, leaves and flowers that extend to the trigger plate, trigger guard and fore-end iron lever. The proportions of the engraving blend wonderfully with the dimensions of the shotgun, giving you the sense of a work of art within a work of art. The stock is a classic semi-beavertail, with premium-quality European walnut and a newly designed fine-line checkering. An oval brass shield, inlaid on the stock, will allow you to personalize your gun with initials or a family crest, while the handsome and durable carrying case will protect the shotgun on all your hunting adventures. A Classic Choice for Hunting This shotgun will shine in any hunting situation. This is because it is built on a receiver that is equally strong and low-profile. The 687 action has two conical locking lugs at mid-height, meaning that it will always lock up strongly and positively while not requiring the extra bulk and weight for a top locking lever. This further means that when you bring it up to the shoulder, the vertical distance between your eye and your supporting hand is minimized: this shotgun will follow your sight easily and instinctively. And in spite of its beauty, the 687 action is noted for its strength, so this is a shotgun that you can confidently pass down to the next generation of hunters.

Hero's Arms Says:      This Beretta 687EELL Diamond Pigeon has been used and has minor handling marks to show it.  These reduce its condition to 97% in my opinion.  The Blue Book values this gun, in 95% condition, at $5,500.  This is an all around gun for collecting, hunting, skeet and sporting clays.  It comes with six choke tubes in Improved Modified, Modified, Improved Cylinder, Skeet, Skeet and Cylinder constrictions and other Mobilchokes are easy to find.  The wood and engraving are spectacular.  This is a very high grade gun.

HA2445 Browning Citori 725 Sporting, O/U, .410 Bore Ga., 2 1/2" & 3", 32"MC Bbls., As-New-In-Box, $2,495

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Browning Says:  Signature 725 rounded fore arm with subtle palm rest is both comfortable and stylish. HiViz Pro-Comp fiber-optic front sight and ivory mid-bead sight for excellent target acquisition even in low-light conditions.  Five Invector Diana extended choke tubes (Full, Improved Modified, Modified, Improved Cylinder, Skeet) Beautiful gloss oil finish Grade III/IV Walnut. Gold accented Engraving. The Low-Profile steel receiver of the Citori 725 is a triumph of modern design without sacrificing traditional strength, keeping the full-hinge pin and tapered locking bolt design that makes a Citori superior to weaker trunnion designs. The silver nitride finish on the receiver is as tough as it is beautiful. Ventilated top rib provides a horizontal sighting plane, reduced heat mirage, and a classic sporting look. Ventilated side rib reduces overall weight and aids in barrel cooling. Vector Pro lengthened forcing cones provide improved shot patterns and superior durability, even with steel shot. The Fire Lite Mechanical Trigger system design features reduced take up, a crip break, and shorter overtravel, resulting in a high performance trigger that doesn't require intertia to reset. Hammer ejectors quickly and reliably clear the chambers for quick reloading. Top-tang barrel selector/safety allow you to verify the status of the gun without unshouldering it. Close radius pistol grip and palm swell with detailed checkering and classic lines for beauty without sacrificing function. Inflex II recoil pad absorbs and deflects recoil away from the shooter's cheek, allowing you to shoot comfortably for longer periods of time.
 

Hero's Arms Says: This 410-32" Sporting was shot one  day for a few rounds.  The forearm did not suit the shooter who has very long arms and found the sharp edge of the Schnabel forearm uncomfortable. It shares numerous important features with the 12 and 20 Gauge 725s, but it uses standard Invector chokes, in this case Diana extended chokes in Full, Improved Modified, Modified, Improved Cylinder, and Skeet Constrictions.   It has a 14 7/8" Length of pull, changeable to 14 3/4" to 15 1/8" by moving the trigger.  It comes with three triggers, Hi/Viz sight inserts and a choke tool.  It has nicely figured wood, and would be an attractive and reliable shotgun for skeet of sporting clays.

HA2379 Marble's Model 21 Game Getter, Folding Stock, O/U, .22 S/L/LR over .410 Bore, 2 1/2" or GG 44, 18"Bbls., (Used 98%), $2,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Marble's Model 21 Game Getter was purchased in 1929 by my wife's great uncle, James Eccles for his wife Mary.  It has descended through the family to my wife.  Considering its 88 year life, so far, it is in excellent shape.  It may not have been fired, the bores are mirror. It comes with the original Box, the original Owner's Manual, both numbered to the gun, and a copy of the 1929 registration card from Marble's Archives.  The gun shows some holster wear on the end of the barrels and on sharp edges of the receiver.  This is not a restricted or NFA weapon  "the 18" barrel variation was administratively removed from the NFA in 1939 by the Bureau of Internal Revenue after determining that it was not concealable on the person."  The top barrel is chambered for 22 Short, Long or Long Rifle cartridges, the bottom barrel accepts 410 2 1/2" Shot Shells/Rifled Slugs, or 44 Game Getter Ball cartridges (which you probably won't find at Wall Mart).  It has a blade front sight, and a combination U shaped or Peep, rear sight.  The gun breaks open by pulling back on the trigger guard. A single extractor lifts the shells from both chambers.  The Hammer Face pivots up or down to select the barrel to be fired.  It has no safety, but the hammer must be manually cocked before it will fire.  This is an authentic collectors piece, and would be handy to have as a survival rifle/shotgun if society falls apart as some expect.

HA2359 Perazzi (Ithaca) Mirage Sporting Combo, Long-LOP, O/U 12 Ga. 2 3/4", 30" Ported Bbls., Briley Sub-Gauge 20-28-410 30" Tubes, Extra Trigger, Stock, Springs, (Used-Custom), Cased, $6,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Perazzi Mirage was built in 1973 in Italy and was Imported by Ithaca. First it was used as a trap gun, but not used very much, then I bought it in 1992 and had Klaus Hiptmayer (now retired) carve me a stock from exhibition grade wood.  The stock was made to my dimensions, so the Length of pull is 15 7/8".  I was fascinated with the idea of a custom stock so I had the butt checkered, no pad.  I realized this was a mistake after shooting a round of Skeet with the 12 Gauge.  I think I have shot one or two rounds of Skeet with the 28 Gauge inserts in the last 20 years, so the gun is as modified. Any purchaser under 6'5" will probably want to have the stock shortened and a recoil pad fitted.  The bottoms of both triggers were engraved  by Heidi Hiptmayer (now deceased) with a Fleur-de-Lis with Serpent Entwined, which is the Hero's Arms Logo (at the top of this page), and also the Crest from the Buckner Family Coat of Arms.  In Heraldry the Fleur-de-Lis signifies purity, the Serpent signifies wisdom (after the Garden of Eden).  The 30" (760mm) barrels have sub-gauge tube fitted by Briley and Thin Wall Briley Choke tubes.  For the 12 Gauge there are five chokes, Full, Modified, Improved Cylinder and 2 Skeet.  For the 20-28-410 Tube sets each has Modified, Improved Cylinder and Two Skeet chokes.  The combo comes with a number of extras.  The gun itself comes with a non-selective trigger, the bottom barrel always fires first, so I bought a Selective Trigger assembly for it which is included.  Next, there is a set of replacement springs and firing pins, with wrench just in case they are needed in the middle of a competition. There is a Release Trigger Hook and spring so the standard trigger can be converted to a release trigger.  Finally, there is the original Trap Stock with an Edwards Recoil Reducer inside, and the original forearm.

HA2251 Charles Daly (Miroku) Kolar Skeet Combo, O/U, 12-20-28-410 28", Cased, Condition Various, $2,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Charles Daly Superior Grade was originally built by Miroku in Japan, and is essentially a Browning Citori with some differences.  I had Midwest Gun Works replace the springs, check it over and re-blue the receiver, so mechanically it is in excellent condition.  There are numerous small handling marks on the wood, and the bluing on the right side of the lower barrel has some freckling, so no one will think this a new gun.  It has a 14 3/4" LOP over a Morgan Pad, which allows for the Drop At Heel to be adjusted to the shooter's choice. Each Gauge has 2 Skeet tubes, in addition the 12 has IC/Mod/Full, the 20 & 28 have IC/IC, and the 410 has Mod/Full.  It comes with a plastic mallet, a knock-out driver and choke wrenches for every gauge.  The Aluminum Case seems Airline Proof. The 12 Gauge, empty weighs 7 pounds 13 ounces, but with the barrel weight or sub gauge tubes installed it weighs around 8 pounds 9 ounces.  On the sides of the receiver there are what Charles Daly called "Selexors", which supposedly allow the shooter to select between ejection and extraction, but I have been unable to figure out how they work, so it just ejects.  I shot a round of Skeet with the 28 Gauge Tubes installed, and everything worked perfectly - except the shooter who got his usual score.  Anyway, it's a poor workman who blames his tools.  I have other 4 gauge sets available, but this one is a real bargain.

HA2270 Kolar Max Skeet, Big & Tall, Adjustable-Comb-Ribs, O/U, 12 Ga., 2 3/4", 30"MC Bbls., & Carrier Bbls. w/ Kolar AAA 20, 28 & 410 Inserts, Americase (Used 99%), $13,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Kolar Max Skeet was custom built for a big, tall right handed shooter.  It has a 15 7/8" Length of Pull, and weighs 10 pounds 8 ounces with the 12 Gauge barrels and within an ounce of that with the carrier barrels with sub-gauge tubes.   It has the Kolar LS3 competition stock configuration with 1 5/8" drop at Comb and Monte Carlo, 3 1/4" drop at Heel, 1/4" Offset to the right, and 3/4" Toe out.  Both the 12 Gauge barrels and the carrier barrels have ribs adjustable for Point Of Impact from 50%/50% to 70%/30%.  It has a hi-gloss blue receiver, a $795 upgrade from the standard nickel finish.  It comes with Kolar Chokes in Modified, Light Modified, Improved Cylinder and Skeet/Skeet in 12 Gauge.  The Kolar AAA sub gauge tubes have Skeet/Skeet chokes, with an extra Improved Cylinder choke in 20, 28 and 410.  It has nicely figured wood.  It has been serviced by Kolar and is in excellent condition. There are a few small handling marks so I rate it at 99% condition.  This is a gun for the serious skeet competitor.  Free Shipping in the original 48 states.

HA1402 Caesar Guerini Forum Sporting, O/U, 12 Ga., 2 3/4", 32"MC Bbls., As-New-In-Case, $7,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Caesar Guerini Says:  Description: The Forum Sporting over/under is in a class by itself, a remarkable creation that combines the legendary Italian gunmakers’ craft with technologically advanced manufacturing processes. The best highly skilled craftsmen pour many hours of hand labor and painstaking attention to detail into each Forum Sporting. Every surface is hand-polished, even interior areas you can’t see, and all components are hand-fitted to ensure flawless operation. Updated engraving on the Forum Sporting, includes more coverage and detail. The gun also features our revolutionary new full-length trigger guard that dispenses with screws for a clean, seamless look. The end of the guard terminates in a perfectly fitted skeletal grip cap, adding a touch of elegance. The Forum Sporting is stocked in premium English walnut with a hand-rubbed oil finish.

Hero's Arms Says:  This gun was sold just a few months ago, and has had fewer than 2,000 shots fire through it.  A need to pay college tuition for a child prompted it's return. This is the top of the Caesar Guerini line.  With its full coverage engraving and highly figured walnut it is elegant. It has a slight cast on (right hand) and a right hand palm swell.   It's price is a very significant reduction not only from list but also from the Club/Military/NRA price.

This Browning Grade V (Diana) combo, first sold in 1956, is in exceptional condition.  There are a few very minor dings in the wood but the bluing and engraving are near mint.  It came originally with a 28 inch barrel set, barrel 1, choked Full and Modified.  These barrels were later opened up to Improved Cylinder and Improved Cylinder (Briley choke tubes could be installed if desired to get back to Full and Modified).  The second barrel set, 26 3/8" in Skeet and Skeet constrictions, barrel 2, was installed later by Browning and numbered to the gun.  A Limbsaver recoil pad has been mounted but the original Browning pad is in the case.  The Length of Pull with the original pad is the correct 14 1/4", with the Limbsaver it is 14 1/2". It has a Prince of Wales (Round Knob) Long Tang configuration. The wood is nicely figured. The Browning case is in good condition and contains the original owner’s manual numbered to the gun.  The deeply incised engraving by Browning Master Engraver Doyen is exceptionally beautiful - I personally prefer the Grade V deeply incised engraving to the earlier and later Diana styles.  I shot a round of skeet with the 26 3/8" barrels and the gun functioned flawlessly.  This is a real collector’s dream, which could also be used for hunting, skeet or sporting clays.

HA1301 Browning Pre-War Superposed, Midas Level Upgrade, Double Single Triggers, English Stock, 12 Ga., 2 3/4" 30"IC/M Bbls., Cased, $6,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

The receiver for this Superposed was probably manufactured in 1932, but it was first sold in 1936 for $59.46.  As it left the factory it was a standard grade with specially ordered Improved Cylinder and Modified choking, and twin single triggers. (Browning Factory Letter) Unlike most double trigger guns the front trigger will fire first the bottom then reset itself and fire the top barrel,  The rear trigger will fire the top barrel, then one must use the front trigger to fire the bottom barrel.  One can also use it just like a normal double trigger gun. It has a solid rib and the "horseshoe" bracket on the front of the forearm, which distinguishes it from later versions of the Superposed.  In 1984 it was purchased by Thomas Grogg, an engraver, who engraved it and put in solid 18 Karat gold inlays and lines.  On the left side of the receiver is a Mallard, the right side is a Canada Goose. On the pre-1936 Midas Superposed there were pigeons on both sides of the receiver, so this is not a copy or an attempt to fake being a Midas Grade, but a Midas level upgrade.  After it was engraved in 1984 it was reblued and refinished by a gunsmith who formerly ran the Browning refinishing shop. There was some cracking in the finish of the stock, as was normal for Brownings of that era, so it was refinished with an oil finish by Klaus Hiptmayer who also refreshed the engraving. There is probably more than a thousand dollars worth of gold in this gun.  Grogg's signature is on the lower right side of the receiver just behind the pivot pin.  It has two recoil pads, a Pachmayr Old English, and a Browning Vent Rubber pad.  I purchased it from Grogg. The gun has had about 200 rounds fired since 1984

HA1769 SKB (Mitsui) 500, (Compact Adult/ Youth) O/U, 28 Ga., 2 3/4", 28"-F-M (Used 99.9% in Box) $1,795

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This SKB 500, imported by Mitsui in the early 1980s, has seen very little use.  It appears to be in "As-New-In-Box" condition in its original box.  It is a light, six pound 8 ounce, upland hunting gun with fixed full and modified choke constrictions.  It is especially well suited to the smaller shooter with its 13 15/16" Length of Pull.  It has the legendary SKB modified Greener cross-bolt lockup, one of the strongest around.  It has the original hard plastic SKB butt plate, ideal for quick mounting.  It could also be used for Skeet of Sporting Clays.

HA1741 Browning Cynergy Field, Walnut, Adjustable LOP,  O/U, 12 Ga. 2 3/4" & 3", 26"MC Bbls., (Used 99%+), $1,795.

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Browning Cynergy Field was made in 2005 and has seen little use.  It basically looks and feels like new, with a couple of tiny marks on the bottom of the forearm.   It is currently set up with a medium Inflex recoil pad so the Length of Pull is 14 1/8" (or 14 3/8" with spacer) making it suitable for an average shooter around 5'6" to 5'10" tall.  I will however set it up and ship it with any length of pull between 13 5/8" and 15 3/8"  as desired for the same price.    It comes with flush Invector Plus chokes, Full, Modified, Improved Cylinder and 2 Skeet constrictions (added by Hero's Arms).   This gun could be used by a 5 foot 13 year old and will still fit when she is a 6'5" basketball player.  It can be used for anything, upland hunting, waterfowl, skeet, sporting clays or trap, truly a one gun solution.
