Sorry for being MIA the past few days. Work has been a bear the past few days – 10, 11 hours a day in the office – and I haven’t had extra time or energy to do much more.  But now I’m back. And so are the good guns.

This 12 gauge Browning Superposed Superlight just came on the market and caught my eye. Except for the pad, it looks like a decent, original double, and at just $2,499.99, it also looks like a deal.

The Browning Superposed was the last firearm designed by John Browning, and this over-under shotgun went into production in 1931 – five years after its inventor’s death. I think the Superlights were introduced in the late ’60s and offered into the ’70s. The one you see here weighs just 6 lbs. 8 oz., so it looks like it lives up to its name.
