Orvis periodically creates a custom shotgun offering with “Orvis Custom” labeling and some very nice, upgraded features.  You will see these custom labeled guns made by various quality makers over the years.  This gun was produced for Orvis by Arrieta of Spain.  The Arrieta y CIA is one of the finest of the Spanish made shotguns produced in the true Basque traditions.  Michael McIntosh praises the Arrieta in his book “Best Guns” and in fact carried his Arrieta afield as much as any other gun he owned.  The Basque makers were famous for making quality “copies” of other guns, and this Arrieta is a Holland & Holland sidelock action produced to perfection.  With chopper lump barrels, removable striker discs, articulated front trigger, stocked to the fences, drop points, beaded fences, sculpted frame, cocking indicators, deep chiseled, hand chiseled engraving, perfectly struck barrels, file cut rib, you have ALL OF THE BEST GUN FEATURES AT A FRACTION OF THE PRICE!  This gun, sn37459 built in 1984 was special ordered by Orvis with the options of case colored receiver and skeleton buttplate. Weighing in at 5lbs. 13oz. and balanced on the hinge pin, she is just what you would expect of a fine sidelock 28ga. game gun…dynamic handling characteristics and lightning fast mounting for the fast flush of quail, grouse, woodcock, or the wild upland birds of the western plains.  This gun will be a delight for all day walks over hill and dale.  These guns ran over $6800 when new, and this gun has barely been carried or fired.  You might as well save hundreds of dollars and buy this one.  Cased in a nice canvas and leather case with accessories and Arrieta trade label worth over $450, the case adds a lot of value to a fine little shotgun like this small bore.  Arrieta closed its doors several years ago and there are no more being made.  You will not find a better value in a modern, Holland & Holland style sidelock small gauge gun.

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 BSS Sporter (Straight Grip) in 20 Gauge, 28″ barrels w/ Browning Luggage CaseIt would be hard to find a nicer and more desirable Browning BSS side by side than this one!  This 20 gauge “Sporter” model was made in 1979 and is as nice as they come.  It comes complete with the original dark brown Browning hard sided luggage case with the owner’s manual and latch keys.  It has 28 inch barrels which is the longest length that Browning offered in this model, and they are the hardest length to find.  This model BSS also features a straight English style grip, a single selectable trigger, automatic ejectors, and a oil finished walnut stock with checkering on the wrist and forearm.  The Browning factory blue finish on the metal parts rates a conservative 98% and looks minty.  Only under very close examination can you find anything to deduct some percentage points.  The original factory stock set is in excellent condition and could pass for being made last week!  The checkering is still sharp and it has not been altered in any way.  The Browning butt plate is in excellent shape, and the shotgun pulls 14 & 1/4 inches.  The condition of this Browning is nearly perfect and looks like it was never used or carried in the field.  These BSS models have a reputation for being durable and nicely fit and finished.  Not only are they a very attractive and classy double gun, they handle well in the field and have great balance.  We share the opinion of many that you can’t buy a nicer double for the money than this model, and we think it would be next to impossible to find a BSS in any better condition than this one.  Price: $2,150

20ga. Browning BSS Sporter SxS Shotgun
20ga. Browning BSS Sporter SxS Shotgun

Of all the world’s major gunmakers, few have been around as long as Browning and fewer have made as wide a variety of firearms. Many of Browning’s guns were built on patents created by the company’s brilliant founder: John Moses Browning. But while JM  did invent everything from the M1911 pistol to the Superposed, he never came up with his own design for a SxS.

But that doesn’t mean Browning never “built” them.

20ga. Browning BSS Sporter SxS Shotgun
20ga. Browning BSS Sporter SxS Shotgun

In fact, Browning introduced it’s first side-by-side shotgun in 1972. It was the 12g BSS boxlock, and in 1973 the company added a 20g. These guns were actually made in Japan by Miroku and they  had beavertail forends and pistol-grip stocks. The trimmer, straight gripped Sporter models came out in ’78. (BTW: So did another classic — the Bee Gees’ Night Fever). Of all these BSS guns, ones Sporters with 28″ barrels are the toughest to find.

That’s why this 20g BSS caught my eye. While it’s not cheap, it is a nice gun at a fair price. It’s also pretty light for a 20g Browning with two tubes. For those reasons, I bet it will sell pretty quickly.

Browning’s BSS side-by-side shotguns are rugged, reliable doubles. Most of the ones you see have pistol grips and 26″. This one is a Sporter, the model that’s a bit lighter a lot harder to find. If you’re looking for a great pheasant / duck gun, this is it.

Browning BSS Custom by Art Isaacson with 30" barrels
Browning BSS Custom by Art Isaacson with 30″ barrels

Here’s an interesting idea: Take a 12 gauge Browning BSS Sporter, and add a set of 30″ barrels from Browning’s regular model. The results look like they would make a great target gun, and I’m sure it would be just as nice in a duck blind or a pheasant field. Considering all the work done to it, the price seems very fair, too.

Browning BSS Custom by Art Isaacson with 30″ barrels: On an English Sporter frame. Art took the barrels from a high-gloss pistol-gripped 30″ target model and expertly fit them to a single-selective triggered English stocked Sporter BSS. Semi Beavertail forend. One handling mark on stock (small dimple). Uncut stock fitted with a Browning Sporter hard rubber buttpad, 5/8″ thick. LOP is 14 1/2″, DAC is 1 5/8″, DAH is 2 1/2″.  With 7 custom fitted thin-wall Briley chokes (2-SK1, IC, LT MOD, MOD, IMOD, Full).  This is a one-of-a-kind Art Issacson original.  The gun is 99%, tight as new.  It was set up to be a classic SxS Sporting Clays gun. Price: $2300

OK, so I’m still buried at work. But I saw this Browning pop up and I wanted to get it up for everyone to check out. It’s a 12 gauge Browning BSS Sporter with 28″ barrels.

Browning BSS shotguns were made in that period when every American want short barrels. So 98% of the ones you see out there have 26″ barrels – especially the Sporters (the ones with straight stocks, rather than pistol grips). BSS are modern guns, and they’re made with moderns steel and meant to be used with modern ammo. So this one here is pretty worry free. The only thing you might want to do is open the chokes a bit for steel ammo. Other than that, it’s ready for the field, and just about anything that flies you way.
