Miroku a Japanese manufactured shotgun who actually make Browning Shotguns for the World .
Here in the UK , Browning UK also promote and sell the Miroku range of guns .
A Miroku won the World Fitasc last year and has won numerous World and National & International events and Championships .
When you consider that a Grade 5 or 6 Miroku is only one fifth of the retail cost of its competitors it has to be very good value for money.
Miroku Makes Champions.

That brand isn’t generally available in the US other than Browning branded guns.

I have an old Charles Daly field gun built by Miroku in 20 gauge.

The only problem is it's an earlier version, and parts are difficult.

There is no question in my mind that Miroku guns as marketed by Browning are absolutely in the top tier of shotgun value for dollar.

Miroku branded guns are so much less common in Canada, that they are unimportant.

We always refer to "B" guns, as value for dollar here, the Brownings and the Berettas.

The only US importer I am aware of is BSA Ltd in Millbrook NY. I have a Mk 38 Grade V Sporter that I bought from Charles. Google their web site and select their gun room and look for them under Browning. I agree that it's a great value. If you like Brownings, but don't want ported barrels and want a beautiful shotgun, give them a call. The wood on mine is some of the best I've ever seen.

I'll second twohigh as posted above. Received a Miroku English Field Mk60 from British Sporting Arms, and it is a very well made gun. Search reviews on these and you see only positive press. And the Grad 5 wood is impressive at any cost. They take extra time hand fitting many of the parts and regulating the barrels (according to the press). See below:

Even Mike Yardley has praise for these:

Miroku MK line keeps shrinking. Expands a bit on demand. MK-60 grd1 20 gauge is no longer offered. Don't think they offered a 28 gauge or .410 in MK-60, maybe in the 600/6000 lines.

I prefer my 32" Pro Sport to my Miroku Trap gun just for the ease of adjustability and it's heavier and smoother to shoot.

Looks like Australia is the place to be for Miroku shotguns ( https://mirokushotguns.com.au/models/ ). They have MK60/70/38/11, ML11 and a G13. Even offer a MK10 DELUXE WATERFOWL, a sporter with ducks engraved on the action for the discriminating shooter.

You could be right, most of the Miroku's sold in the U.K. come with a cardboard box, not even a cheap abs case. :shock:

I wish that I had not looked at the gun specs. in that link, even the Trap guns have multi chokes.

Yarp. Limited to MK60 or G13 CUSTOM for fixed chokes. You'll have to look to the EU for fixed choke trap guns. It's a long walk from NY.

A friend of mine bought the Miroku Mk38 Trap with fixed IM/F choked from BSA Ltd earlier this year and BSA's website still shows it available in fixed chokes. They import from the UK.

I think the Miroku Browning shotguns are the best value dollar for dollar.
I've had lots of shotguns and never had a bad Browning!

So in the USA, if you want non ported fixed choke 32" Browning you are SOL. Unless you go used Superposed. Which can be had 1400 to 3000. 1964 old guns and old gun issues.

BSA has brand new Miroku G5 32 fixed trap. 3800. I was there this week and shouldered it. Nice.
He has some 32 sporter versions (schnable) with invector chokes Non ported

Now the question is- Is the Browning CXS the equal in swing and feel. It is 1800 usd so a great price.. 32 NP Invector, black action no engraving. I think it may but I have yet to shoulder one.

That being said, I prefer trap config generally for sporting. Beavertail, Straiter stock etc fixed and Browning in USA does not offer. You would have to buy 2 and mix and match. All Trap in USA seems to have raised ribs.
