Browning Model BSS B-S/S, 28″ Side by Side, SxS Shotgun With Ejectors, MFD 1970s 20 Gauge 2-3/4″ & 3″

Browning Model BSS B-S/S, 28″ Side by Side, SxS Shotgun With Ejectors, MFD 1970s 20 Gauge 2-3/4″ & 3:

Serial Number: 2167B57

Gauge: 20 Gauge, 2 3/4″ & 3″ Shells

Action Type: Top Lever Break Side by Side (SxS) with Single Trigger and Ejectors

Markings: The left side of the left barrel is marked “”BROWNING ARMS COMPANY MORGAN, UTAH & MONTREAL P.Q. / MADE IN JAPAN AND ASSEMBLED IN KOREA” and the right side of the right barrel is marked “B-S/S SPECIAL STEEL 20 GA. SHELLS – 2 ¾” AND 3””.

Barrel Length: 28″

Choke: The left barrel is choked Full and the right barrel is choked Modified.

Stock Configuration & Condition:  The LOP measures 14 1/8″ from the front of the trigger to the back of the 1″ White Line rubber recoil pad. The stocks rate in about Good to Very Good overall condition.

Finish Originality: Factory Original

Bore Condition: The bore is bright with scattered pits and erosion. None of these threaten the ability of this gun to shoot and none compromise safe barrel wall thickness.

Overall Condition: This shotgun retains about 65% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows thinning on the underside of the frame and the lower tang. The barrel at the chambers shows patches of finish loss as well. The remaining finish has begun to turn a plum color. This is a well used but still very functional and even attractive shotgun which is in the kind of condition where you wouldn’t mind taking this gun into the field and letting it earn a few more marks. The screw heads are serviceable but a bit worn. The markings are clear. Overall, this shotgun rates in about Good to Very Good condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly and while the gun opens easily, there is no play once closed and with the forearm mounted. We have not fired this shotgun.
