Regretfully noticed that Browning quietly dropped the 28 Gauge in their BPS series.
Then as it stands, Remington is the only one offering a pump action in 28 Gauge.
$1040 US, is rather steep for an 870 pump.
I am surprised Mossberg offers the 20 and .410 but not the 28.

Ithaca still makes the 37 in 28 gauge. Cz makes one as well.

My fat fingers make it hard to load my 20ga pumps and autos. I’d need something that has a box magazine if I went to 28ga.

Browning makes what they are calling the BPS Field in 28ga. had one with a 28in. bbl. in my hands in a local GS about $700ish out the door.

Stock is plain satin finish other parts black cera cote type finish. No gloss or blueing.
The stock dimensions on the BPS have changed to a straighter design with less drop.

If you have seen a Winchester SXP trap, the finish it is about the same and same recoil pad also.
Same company now I believe.

Have owned many different makes of 28 gauge pump guns over the years.The Ithaca Model 37 has to be one of the best of them, if not the best.

CZ sells a 28 gauge pump that runs under $500.

My friend bought a brand new CZ 28 pump and the only shells that it would reliably chamber were Winchester AAHS. Beware before you buy

shrike,

I have been told the same thing about the the CZ 28 gauge pump gun, if it was me doing the purchasing I would purchase the quality Ithaca 28 gauge pump gun for sure.

Also GI should have the Browning you are looking for used.

I saw a few 28ga pump guns in Bristol Pa. A couple of BPS's, one blued and one was a Ducks Unlimited silver. He also had a couple of Browning Grade 5 Model 12's.

The Browning BPS 28 gauge was a crazy heavy gun, should have come with wheels.

I own a 16 ga Ithaca with solid rib. Love the gun and dearly would love a 28 in it.
However with the .75 cents to the US dollar, shipping and brokerage fees through Prophet River in Loydminister, I be looking at about 1800 Can. For the basic model. Too much for me sadly.

I have had an 870 28ga 25” full choke for over 35 yrs . I love it. And have shot lots of pheasant and rabbits.

I had a Remington 28 gauge until and loved it until my son got it as a graduation present. He loves it just as much as I did..
