I'm close to pulling the trigger on a 2017 Browning 425 AS 28 gauge.
Grade III wood, 30" Invector choked barrels, 7 pounds, slight cast for the right handed shooter.

Anyone have any Miller experience or preferences versus say a 525?

Sorry, no experience with a Miller 425 vs 525.

But that is one very nice 28ga!! 30in tubes to boot!! And GREAT wood!!!

I love my 525 28ga Feather with 28in tubes. Also just picked up a 725 Sporting in 28ga with 30in tubes (it's fantastic!!).

From what I've seen and researched, the Miller 425s are some of the best Citoris made.

Keep us posted should you close the deal. With pics!!

John Miller of Millers Guns in New Castle Delaware was the 1st to offer small bore 425’s. He designed his own engraving pattern and was ordering them several hundred at a time in both right and left hand versions with upgraded wood. After his second order Browning started producing them and he lost his exclusive. I have a set—-20/28/410 in lefty version and they have been superb shooters for many years. They would be among the last Guns I’d ever sell. Do yourself a favor and buy the 28. You’ll be pleased and no thank you’s are necessary.

I did just that.
28 gauge, 30" Invector choked, 7 lbs, nice long LOP at 14 3/4"
and my favorite Browning Sporter pad, 5/8", the perfect thickness.
Not "Exhibition" grade wood but certainly interesting.

Very nice!!! I have one of Miller’s 425 left handed models. Definitely one of my favorite go to guns. Been meaning to see if they have a left handed 20 gauge available.

You got a good one. John always tried to get better then average wood on his guns! Shoot well!

I’ve had my lefty 28 gauge Millers 425 for about 5 years. The 30” barrel doesn’t give much if anything up to a 12 gauge at 30 yard shots.

my stock is not as glossy as the one shown here...more of a flat or matte finish.

Enjoy...they don’t make them anymore. Not sure how long Millers will stay in business. Was there this past Wednesday and the store is near empty. Many if not most of the guns on the 70% empty racks were used consignments. Almost no reloading supplies and only several dozen flats of ammo where there used to be hundreds. Sad.

I have a 425 in 12. No matter what some people say, I think the 425 is about the nicest o/u to come out of browning.

Post subject:  Re: Browning 425, "Miller Special"

Agreed. I shoot the 12, 20, 28, and 410 as my tournament guns. All are the Miller spec 425 Brownings with the gold engraving and nice wood. John always did a nice job on those factory orders.

Miller’s has undergone a renaissance and is back in the Browning 425 business again. They recently received over 100 of his Specials once again. I bought another lefty 12 and a friend picked up a 28 bore. Both had better then average wood. They cost more then they did a decade ago, but are well worth it!

I received my shotgun but am having issues with Miller regarding the 5% rebate. I am trying to resolve it with them but have not been able to so far.

Highly recommended,
