The finish on this Parker GHE 20 ga is rough, but it looks original. It’s a late gun, built around XXXX, so it has all the upgrades the company built into its guns over the years. It also has 30″ barrels — unusual for a 20.

Browning BSS Sidelock Side by Side 20 Gauge Shotgun
Browning BSS Sidelock Side by Side 20 Gauge Shotgun

I’ve always loved these sidelock Browning SxSs shotguns. Not only are they great looking, but they’re also very well made. Built in Japan by Miroku, they’ve earned a reputation for high-quality at a relatively low price. With high-quality locks, excellent metal-to-metal fit, and nice wood & checking, it’s easy to see why.

Auction alert: Browning BSS Sidelock 12ga 28″

Here’s another high-quality shotgun that doesn’t cost a fortune.

Even though Browning is closely associated with its over-under Superposed and semi-automatic A-5 shotguns, they did “build” some nice SxSs. These guns were Browning Side-by-Sides (BSSs). They came in boxlock models (built from 1971-1978) and sidelock models (built from 1983-1988). All these guns were built for Browning in Japan by Miroku.

Auction alert: Browning BSS Sidelock 12ga 28"
Auction alert: Browning BSS Sidelock 12ga 28″

Browning sidelock 12ga with 28″ barrels. Gun weighs 6lbs 9oz and has an LOP of 15 1/8 to end of 1″ pachmayr recoil pad. Barrels have been bored out Cylinder right and Skeet left. The gun has been hunted but still locks up very tight. There are some very minor hairline cracks at the back of locks on each side that have been reinforced internally with wood epoxy and I have had no problem with these. There are also some small chips in the wood where the locks have been removed to clean and lube after the season. A very small dent in the right barrel about 6 inches from muzzel, again I have had no problem with this when shooting. This gun locks up tight and functions perfectly.

Browning ~ B S/S Sporter ~ 20 Ga

Get on this one fast. This 20g Browning BSS Sporter is priced right, and I guarantee it won’t be on the market for long.

Miroku of Japan made these boxlock SxSs for Browning, and they’re based on the classic Anson & Deeley boxlock design. Rugged and dependable, they’re only drawbacks are their weight — they are a bit heavy — and the stocks can be a bit thick.

Browning ~ B S/S Sporter ~ 20 Ga
Browning ~ B S/S Sporter ~ 20 Ga

This one’s special because it’s a Sporter, so it has a trimmer, English-style, straight-grip stock. This makes it a bit lighter than most 20g BSSs — and a bit better looking. It does look a bit used, but I don’t see any signs of abuse. If it checks out with your gunsmith, it should be a great all-around upland gun.

Browning ~ B S/S Sporter ~ 20 Ga: Chambers: 3″, Metal Condition: Some Bluing Loss, Wood Condition: Very Few Very Light User Marks, Bore Condition: Bright and Shiny, Barrels: 26″, Triggers: Single Selective, Stock: Checkered English Grip, Stock Dimensions: 14 1/4″ LOP, Fore End: Checkered, Butt Pad: Pachmayr Recoil Pad, Weight: 6 Lbs 10 Oz., Sights: Front Bead, Chokes: IC and LMOD.

Old and new: Great looking 20 gauge doubles…

When I first got into doubles, twenty-gauge shotguns weren’t my thing. I was more interested in 12 gauges and — my favorites — sixteens. But as I’ve aged, I’ve earned a respect twenties. Ammo is easy to find for them, most of them are lightweight, and the throw enough lead to kill the birds I hunt most of the time.

The four 20 gauge shotguns listed below are both and unusual and unusually versatile. Check them out now.

Browning BSS BOXLOCK SXS 20GA
Browning BSS BOXLOCK SXS 20GA

Sure Browning is famous for their Superposed and Citori OUs, and their A5 autoloaders.

But the company also “made” some great SxSs. I say “made” because Browning had their SxSs built by another company (just like they did with their OUs). For the BSS, that copy was Miroku in Japan.

Browning offered the Miroku-made BSS from 1971 to 1988. With a straight grip and a slim forend, the gun you see here is a Sporter model, which was Browning lightweight version of this gun. These doubles are great for grouse, woodcock, and qual, and at this price, this one is a fair deal.
