Special Steel really means nothing in particular. For a while after Browning stopped using Cockerill Steel they put their own "trade name" on it as in those days there was much debate over the best barrel materials, twist, 4 blade damascus, 5 blade and fluid steel with a bunch of different names each had fans. So naming it was supposed to give it market appeal....
Barrels sold outside the US had "Acier Special" on them, which translated as "special steel" in English.
