Browning Belgium Superposed Lightning 20 Gauge

Browning Belgium Superposed Lightning 20 Gauge

John Moses Browning was one of the most inventive minds in firearms. Born in 1855, he awarded his first patent at age 24. Between then and when he died in 1926, he designed and patented for everything from pistols and shotguns to rifles, machine guns, and cartridges. Mr Browning’s last design was for the famous Suporposed shotgun. Even though he passed away in 1926, his design was completed and introduced in 1931. The Superposed would go on to become one of the world’s great shotguns.

The 20 gauge Browning Superposed you see here looks like it’s in great shape.

One Response to “Auction alert: a nice 20g Browning Superposed Lightning from 1952…”

    About as good as it gets for the advanced Browning collector (if it is all original as claimed). It is fairly easy to find high-condition graded guns, but when an early high condition field gun comes out that’s truly rare. Especially in 20 gauge.

    Just a quick note. As stated above, the Superposed was John B’s last project, but what is really cool is the fact that his son “Val” finished out the project and actually perfected the design of the single selective trigger…Good genes I suppose & a great story! A son’s tribute to his father!
