Browning Superposed

The Browning Superposed was one of the first over-under shotgun designs to be produced, and the last firearm to be designed by John Browning. The Superposed introduced a wide variety of innovations including the single select trigger and over-under design. This design was considered revolutionary in the 1930s, but it was later found that Browning had already made a model of this design in the 1880s.

Original production dates were 1931-1940.

Original production grades were Grade I (Lightning/Standard), Pigeon, Diana and Midas.

Post WWII production began in 1948 and lasted until 1960 when the model underwent major changes.

Famous quotes containing the word browning:

    It is not merely the likeness which is precious ... but the association and the sense of nearness involved in the thing ... the fact of the very shadow of the person lying there fixed forever! It is the very sanctification of portraits I think—and it is not at all monstrous in me to say ... that I would rather have such a memorial of one I dearly loved, than the noblest Artist’s work ever produced.
    —Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)
