I had a Browning 20 ga superposed lightning, 28" choked the same as yours at 6 lb 3 oz. It was a bird killing machine.

I found a really nice Bernardelli 12ga sxs with 25" barrels at 5
lb 15 oz choked IC and IM, I shoot the same 1 oz loads. The Browning went down the road and the Bernardelli is my goto upland shotgun now.


After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Appreciate the input!

I did go double check, and that Parker Repro comes in at 6lbs 9oz. Sure Seems like less!
The Superposed is out for a stock bend, so I can't weight it right now.
And to answer a previous question, yes, both are in the gun safe, but one needs to go!

Yours is a decision that cannot be quantified and cannot be made rationally. It's an emotional choice. Make that choice yourself. Don't rely on borrowed opinions.

Thanks for the thoughts. I'm having fun with the discussion...I'm not here to follow blindly what others say. I do appreciate your idea and input. We're here on this board to talk about doubles, and I wanted to get some ideas and input for the sake of discussion and banter. I'd go to the bar and start the same topic, but everyone at my bar would say "Remington 870 or Nothing!"..hahaha

I'd keep both guns you detailed, and if getting "trashed" while hunting grouse- dogs stepping on them, etc- I'd opt for a Parker Trojan 20 bore- 28" barrels IC and Mod- or a Ithaca NID field grade with same two triggers, barrels and chokes- Non-ejectors-- as you don't want to leave empty hulls in your covers to alert others about the potential shooting therein-

"Oh hunter, when you come at last, and start me from some covert place--" I miss those days in October after grouse and woodcock with a good pointing dog and a "working" 20 bore game gun in hand- RWTF

jOe, sounds like you never been all day grouse huntin...in the mountains, in the thick stuff...where old ruff used to hang out...

i say that, because then you would know how heavy a seven pound gun feels at the end of the day, when you are trudgin back to where you hope you parked at dawn...

I'd stick them both back into the safe and buy something with longer barrels, preferably 28". Like the previously mentioned Parker Repro 28 ga.

Or, an original Parker 16 ga on the zero frame with 28" barrels.

Great thoughts gents. Thanks. But there's no 'keep both' and there's no finding something else before Sep 21st...

Both have been patterned, fit, and ready to roll.
I'm not a collector, I use what I have. So one will go live elsewhere.
