Browning Superposed Shotgun

By Thomas E. Wessel

The Superposed was the last product of the world-famous small-arms designer John M. Browning, and its manufacture was just beginning at the time of Browning's death in 1926. It has proved to be one of the most successful guns of its kind.

Unique, original design features of the Superposed are the single under-bolt, the fore-end which remains attached to the barrels when the gun is taken down, and the trigger. The gun was originally made with the conventional 2 triggers. These were replaced by a "Twin-Single" trigger, a most unusual arrangement of 2 triggers which could be used as conventional triggers

The Browning Superposed is offered by the Browning Arms Co., Morgan. Utah, in 12-, 20-. and 28-ga. and .410-bore. in a variety of styles, weights, and grades with accessories.
