    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Here is a mistake that I made that might work out great for another bird shooter. I am 6'7" and shoot a very long shotgun stock. I was looking for a grouse and quail gun that I could travel with, and purchased this pristine, basically unfired, 1970 Belgian Browning Superposed Lightning in 20ga for that purpose. I sent the gun to JJ Peredeau in Oklahoma for him to strip and ultrasonic clean, add one of his amazing leather covered pads, and bend 3/8" cast off into the stock. His work is impeccable. I shot the gun at the National Grouse and Wiodcock hunt this month in Minnesota, and even with the added pad, it is still just too short for me. While it may be too long for some at 15 3/8" which I thought I could live with, I simply can't on a gun I would shoot a lot.
    Details are: 20ga, 3" chambers, marked IC / Mod and measures as such. Round knob, short tang, 26.5" barrels. Condition is mint. I have shot 2 boxes of shells out of it, and JJ thought it was probably unfired when he got it. $3150 delivered to your FFL.

    The cast off and leather pad make a different gun out of these. Watching JJ bend a stock is amazing. This gun is still as tight as new to open. The original blue is 100% of course.

    If I had the cash I'd relieve you of it. Unfortunately I am now down to trading for future adoptions. GLWS.

    No salt. JJ completely detail stripped this gun, as I planned on owning it for many years, and it is almost 47 years old. I figured that it was time for an oil change. He blessed it nose to tail.

    Thanks. That's great. I'll modify my post so as not to crap in your thread. If you want to think about trades at some point contact me. I'm $$ poor right now. I do love these guns.

    While I am not looking for a trade on this, I am a sucker for a great gun. I would always take a look at a good trade. But please don't take offense if I pass.
