I'm trying to figure out a fair value for a Browning Superposed. I'm not very up on this part of the market (O/U in general) and there are so many Superposed for sale.

This gun is a 1952 Superposed in 20 gauge. It has 26 1/2" barrels with choke markings of IC and Mod. It has a solid rib. 14" LOP to original butt plate.

As near as I can tell it is all original finishes and no modifications have ever been done. You have to look very closely to find any wear or flaw in the gun.

I don't have any pics of it.

Edit to correct date. Thanks Skeettx.

Odd, I did not think the 20 gauge guns were made until 1949.

Sorry. Slip up. 1952. Not 1932.

As you said there are a lot for sale. In the US somewhere between $1900-2200. However, dealers are asking more for them.

Why buy an O/U when you shoot SxS?

Canvasback, I can't help you with value, but I have a 1950 example (in 20 gauge) and it is a real pleasure to use, and even carry all day long.

One of my buddy's has an early 20 with factory engraving of which later was listed as the Diana grade. It's a very nice gun. Gil

That's what I was looking for. Thank you. And to answer your question, I like having one O/U in the safe. I don't think it will make all the SxS feel insecure. LOL

My intent is to swap out a 2004 Citori 16 ga for this one. It just feels better in my hands.

Even though those solid rib Grade I 20-gauges were a bit cheaper than the vent rib versions when new, they carry a premium now. With the present desire for longer barrels, the 28-inch guns are more in demand.

A few years ago I saw a 28-inch gun in a Tolex case sell for $4000!!

Pretty much same price in Canada in $Can.
A recently sold 20 gauge 26 inch rklt choked IC/Mod, later in the 50s, condition about perfect, priced at $2400 and sold close to that.
That is as high condition and price that I have seen one sell.
