Schwing's "Browning Superposed" is one of the best gun books that I've ever read (and I've read quite a few). Interesting and beautiful, it provides an extraordinary amount of historical and technical detail, along with extensive high-quality photography documenting hundreds of wood and engraving patterns. I was introduced to this book by Angelo Bee, the famed engraver from FN in Belgium, who uses it as a primary reference source.

My best advise is to have a qualified gunsmith unjam your expensive Browning superposed,and also find out what problems need to be addressed and repaired.

The Browning Superposed was the first over and under shotgun design to be produced. The Superposed introduced a wide variety of innovations including the single select trigger and over-under design. It was the last firearm to be designed by John Browning. After Browning's death, the design work was completed by his son Val A. Browning.

Schwing's "Browning Superposed" is one of the best gun books that I've ever read (and I've read quite a few). Interesting and beautiful, it provides an extraordinary amount of historical and technical detail, along with extensive high-quality photography documenting hundreds of wood and engraving patterns. I was introduced to this book by Angelo Bee, the famed engraver from FN in Belgium, who uses it as a primary reference source. This book helped me to "design" a customized Superposed, and it's also been a much-appreciated gift to a couple of my shooting friends. I wish I'd bought my copy several years ago at the original price, and it's unfortunate that it hasn't been reissued -- but even at today's much-higher secondary market prices (typically $250-300 on Amazon for a hardcover in nice condition), this book is a good investment if you have a serious interest in these classic shotguns. I don't mean to sound like a shill, but it is truly the Bible of the Browning Superposed: if you can afford it, you won't regret it!

Very informative and much detailed to this book. Covers Browning superposed over and under shotguns from its beginning to its production end. Browning superposed now are custom ordered and only made to order. Kudos to the author for such a fine book.

This is the only book on the subject with lots of information. However, three of the shotguns I investigated were not in the book, descriptions of their features and accesories were not mentioned or illustrated. The prewar section is seriously lacking in detail and accuracy. Graphs take up a whole page and look like page fillers.

This book is still recommended as it has good data but it could have been more complete.

2/2012 I am revising my review and downgrading it to two stars. I just spent 20 minutes trying to authenticate a Superposed case and not a single mention of cases or accesories in this book. The owner asked me what type of box these came in and again I could not answer as this book does not even cover it.

11/2013: Wow, here we go again. I needed to see different checkering patterns in between models... once again not even a mention in this book. The engraving grades are also poorly illustrted, I had to look over a small dark photo to observe a detail which was a major feature of the stock. Prewar info is just not there or is not accurate.

I am an admirer of fine firearms and I own three double barrel shotguns; one of which is a Browning Superposed, SN 69172. I bought it used back in 1970 for $288. Wow! Say goodbye to the good old days. When I saw this book, I had to have it. The author went into great depth and detail regarding what has to be one of the finest double barreled shotguns ever made. Nothing is left to chance, from its first years as a production item through to the present, when it ended up becoming a custom made item. Chronological dates are provided concerning production and when they were made. Mine was made in 1959. I was especially impressed with the chapter on the engraving department for the FN Works. The number of engravers employed by the factory was extensive and it is no small wonder the higher grade Brownings are some of the most beautifully engraved guns I have ever seen. This is borne out by the very extensive use of color photographs of the engraving and custom guns found throughout the book. If you are an admirer of fine guns like I am, then you would enjoy sitting down in your favorite chair one evening and reading this book. This is a book to be read again and again and enjoyed. Buy it. It will be money well spent.
I own a Browning Superposed trap gun, SN 69172, I bought used back in 1970 for $288. Say goodbye to the good old days. The gun has worked like a champ since then. Consequently, when I saw the book I had to have it. The author went into great detail regarding the history, development, and refinement of what many feel to be one of the finest over and unders ever made. The book is a bargain, as the vast majority of its photographs are in breathtaking color and detail. The engraving done by the factory is absolutely stunning and is enough to make anyone drool out of the corners of their mouth like Pavlov's dog. I would recommend this book for any lover of fine firearms, especially if they are drawn to double barrel shotguns, whether they are side bys or over & unders.
