Here are some pictures of my Browning Superposed 20 gauge. My girlfriend of four years Megan passed away 2 weeks ago in a car accident and her grand father gave me this gun. It is in excellent shape the wood has very few dings. I am amazed by the shape of this gun. As you can see the serial number is in the 3000's. From my research that means it is a second year production gun. 1952 I believe.

If anyone has any insight on this gun please let me know. Also I was wondering a rough value. It obviously does not matter as I will never EVER sell this gun.

I can't get passed your second sentence. Bless her soul, her family, you and anybody who knew and loved her. May she live in peace forever.

Oh yes, the shotgun. The 20 was intro'd in 1949. Judging by its appearance I would say you have a $1000 plus gun...

Thanks Slugo. It has been terrible. Really hard times to come too. She had just turned 21 years old a couple months ago. She was sitting at a stop sign when a semi rear ended her going 45 mph. He never even touched the brakes or attempted to stop. It was an accident that could have been prevented. The police can not release any information yet, but I'm guessing he was sleeping or texting or who knows what.

We have a memorial page set up for the Big Hearts under the Big Sky program. All money contributed will be invested, and the earnings off that investment will be used to take wounded warriors, children with terminal illnesses, or women with breast cancer things like that out hunting. Its an awesome program

Same reaction as Slugo. I lost a son, and some friends more recently, all too young. Hang in there.

Any 20 Gauge Super is worth a fair amount more than an otherwise-identical 12, both because it's less common, and because people seek them out. It's a great shooter. Enjoy it, when you can, as her grandfather intended.

Best to you and yours.

Way more than $1000. At least $2000, probably more. If I owned it and was willing to sell it I would price it at $3000. 28" barrels will add a little value. The butt plate is a little beat up, but from what I can see in the pictures the gun is really nice. The gun has a solid rib which seems to be in demand, and so is the early style engraving. Based on the serial number it will have the finer pistol grip. There are not a lot of early 20 Superposeds in great condition

$2,000 plus for the gun.

A priceless, anguished, good soul of the grandfather, and all concerned.

Words fail. God heals.

All pics of Browning Superposed 20 gauge are good and clearly focusing to every highlighted point. What is the exact price of it? either $2,000 plus are final?
