Dear Browning Prewar Superposed Lovers:

With all the recent postings about Pre-war Superposed Brownings, I just couldn't help myself. So here's some pics of my recent first purchase of a pre-war:


Serial number says it is a 1932 gun. But Glen at Browning says it invoiced and shipped in 1935 (the year my dad, who passed away last summer, was born, which makes it all the more special to me). Letter of Authenticity on the way.
Image


Beautiful wood. Twin-single triggers, invented by JMB's son, Val Browning. Awesome!!
Image


30" barrels. Solid rib. Twin ivory beads.
Image


Tasteful engraving.
Image


Some guns have "Browning Superposed" stamped on the rib, some don't. I'm glad this one does!
Image


Love how the checkering comes to a point under the round knob. Browning should have stayed with this pattern.
Image


Ah, the trademark horse shoe . . .
Image


Love the shape of the safety, and the golden "S", and the tasteful engraving.
Image


Browning Arms Co - Ogden, Utah and St. Louis, MO

Special "thanks" to:

** Dave Buffington (Tempter, Wordsmith, patient salesman, all-round good guy & Seller)
** NoDak Scotty, Lowgun (technical advisors)
** LTMFH, Musky Jack & Slugo (comrades in arms, pen-pals)

Thanks for your interest.

CFB


PS - Please post PICS and your story of your pre-war Super on this thread!!!

Wow, what a super! The wood pattern, checkering, and engraving details are nothing but first class.

Yikes, reading this forum is getting expensive, since now after seeing this I am thinking I should add a prewar Browning to my collection.

How do you pronounce "Slugo", and what is a "Slugo"? Thanks for your reply, Slugo.

'Slug-O' is how it's pronounced. A Slugo can be anything you want it to be... ;)

This thread deserves bumping, so...

Here's mine. It's completely unengraved except for the Browning logo on the bottom of the receiver, twin singles, 28" IC/Mod. It's been reblued at some point , and not the best job, so that's the only downside. Locks up firm with the lever just right of center. I wish I could say I shot it regularly but I can't put down that 725....

I'd like to pick up a pre war high grade to go with it :D

Here are two pictures of my 1939 Superposed c1(traces of color case hardening under top lever) It has 28”barrels choked 1/4&1/2. A very nice balance. Pictures are from a pheasant shoot in neighboring country Denmark. I have put in a pad to elongate the stock but I still have the original pad and no changes were done to the stock. I use this gun for most of my hunting as well as clay shooting.

Very Nice C1!. Thank You for sharing the photos and details of the gun. I love the delicate engraving style of these early guns.

Beautiful ! The engraving is lovely on the C1’s , very nice piece of wood and the gun looks as if it’s been treated well it’s whole life. It even has my favorite choke configuration.
Excuse my ignorance of bird hunting in Denmark ,but we’re you hunting “Driven” birds or over dogs ?
