Used Guns


HA2325 Browning Citori Lightning, Grade 1, O/U, .410 Bore, 2 1/2 & 3", 28"MC Bbls., (Used 99.9%), $1,595

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Browning Says:  The lightning-style rounded pistol grip offers a more open grip than full pistol grip designs. Many shooters feel this gives a slight speed-to-shoulder advantage. It represents a midpoint in design between ultra-speedy straight grips and extremely stable full pistol grips. If offers excellent control for whatever you are after -- fast-flying waterfowl, upland game or just shooting fun. Matching the rounded pistol grip is the forearm. It is nicely rounded at the fore-end and together, they give the name to this over under gun as "Lightning Style," or in this case, the Citori Lightning model. As to the finish . . . The Citori Lightning over under shotgun features deeply blued barrels, receiver, top lever and trigger guard -- and gloss finished walnut stock. The trigger is gold in the classic Browning tradition. The checkering is a fine line 24 per inch cut that is true Browning with its sharpness and precision. This look and quality has long been the choice of serious hunters and gun writers. There is simply nothing to criticize. The look and feel. The absence of a recoil pad adds to the graceful look of its profile, and, of course, saves weight. Reduced weight is one of the primary advantages of this model. Plus, the general look of the Citori Lightning has its roots in early Browning Superposed shotguns -- from which this model evolved. It simply looks and shoots fantastically.
 

Hero's Arms Says: A local gentleman purchased this gun in 2016, fired it a few times and found that he couldn't break as many birds as he wished with it.  It has picked up a small scratch in the finish on the left side of the stock, and a tiny scratch on top, reducing its condition to 99.9%.  Other than these it is essentially new.  It is an attractive 410 Bore for Skeet, Sporting Clays, or hunting.

HA1402 Caesar Guerini Forum Sporting, O/U, 12 Ga., 2 3/4", 32"MC Bbls., As-New-In-Case, $7,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Caesar Guerini Says:  Description: The Forum Sporting over/under is in a class by itself, a remarkable creation that combines the legendary Italian gunmakers’ craft with technologically advanced manufacturing processes. The best highly skilled craftsmen pour many hours of hand labor and painstaking attention to detail into each Forum Sporting. Every surface is hand-polished, even interior areas you can’t see, and all components are hand-fitted to ensure flawless operation. Updated engraving on the Forum Sporting, includes more coverage and detail. The gun also features our revolutionary new full-length trigger guard that dispenses with screws for a clean, seamless look. The end of the guard terminates in a perfectly fitted skeletal grip cap, adding a touch of elegance. The Forum Sporting is stocked in premium English walnut with a hand-rubbed oil finish.

Hero's Arms Says:  This gun was sold just a few months ago, and has had fewer than 2,000 shots fire through it.  A need to pay college tuition for a child prompted it's return. This is the top of the Caesar Guerini line.  With its full coverage engraving and highly figured walnut it is elegant. It has a slight cast on (right hand) and a right hand palm swell.   It's price is a very significant reduction not only from list but also from the Club/Military/NRA price.

HA1894 Browning Belgian Superposed Grade V (Diana) 2 Barrel Combo, 12 Ga., 2 3/4" 28"IC/IC, and 12 Ga., 2 3/4" 26 3/8" SK/SK, Cased, (Used 99%), Cased, $6,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Browning Grade V (Diana) combo, first sold in 1956, is in exceptional condition.  There are a few very minor dings in the wood but the bluing and engraving are near mint.  It came originally with a 28 inch barrel set, barrel 1, choked Full and Modified.  These barrels were later opened up to Improved Cylinder and Improved Cylinder (Briley choke tubes could be installed if desired to get back to Full and Modified).  The second barrel set, 26 3/8" in Skeet and Skeet constrictions, barrel 2, was installed later by Browning and numbered to the gun.  A Limbsaver recoil pad has been mounted but the original Browning pad is in the case.  The Length of Pull with the original pad is the correct 14 1/4", with the Limbsaver it is 14 1/2". It has a Prince of Wales (Round Knob) Long Tang configuration. The wood is nicely figured. The Browning case is in good condition and contains the original owner’s manual numbered to the gun.  The deeply incised engraving by Browning Master Engraver Doyen is exceptionally beautiful - I personally prefer the Grade V deeply incised engraving to the earlier and later Diana styles.  I shot a round of skeet with the 26 3/8" barrels and the gun functioned flawlessly.  This is a real collector’s dream, which could also be used for hunting, skeet or sporting clays.

HA1301 Browning Pre-War Superposed, Midas Level Upgrade, Double Single Triggers, English Stock, 12 Ga., 2 3/4" 30"IC/M Bbls., Cased, $6,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

The receiver for this Superposed was probably manufactured in 1932, but it was first sold in 1936 for $59.46.  As it left the factory it was a standard grade with specially ordered Improved Cylinder and Modified choking, and twin single triggers. (Browning Factory Letter) Unlike most double trigger guns the front trigger will fire first the bottom then reset itself and fire the top barrel,  The rear trigger will fire the top barrel, then one must use the front trigger to fire the bottom barrel.  One can also use it just like a normal double trigger gun. It has a solid rib and the "horseshoe" bracket on the front of the forearm, which distinguishes it from later versions of the Superposed.  In 1984 it was purchased by Thomas Grogg, an engraver, who engraved it and put in solid 18 Karat gold inlays and lines.  On the left side of the receiver is a Mallard, the right side is a Canada Goose. On the pre-1936 Midas Superposed there were pigeons on both sides of the receiver, so this is not a copy or an attempt to fake being a Midas Grade, but a Midas level upgrade.  After it was engraved in 1984 it was reblued and refinished by a gunsmith who formerly ran the Browning refinishing shop. There was some cracking in the finish of the stock, as was normal for Brownings of that era, so it was refinished with an oil finish by Klaus Hiptmayer who also refreshed the engraving. There is probably more than a thousand dollars worth of gold in this gun.  Grogg's signature is on the lower right side of the receiver just behind the pivot pin.  It has two recoil pads, a Pachmayr Old English, and a Browning Vent Rubber pad.  I purchased it from Grogg. The gun has had about 200 rounds fired since 1984

HA1815 Browning Citori Privilege Sideplate, O/U, 12 Ga., 2 3/4" & 3", 28"MC Bbls., ANIB, $2,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Browning Says:  Fully embellished side plates depict ringneck pheasants flushing from under a pointer on the left side and lighting woodcocks on the right. A unique, delicately connected checkering pattern enhances the beauty of the hand-oiled, high-grade American Walnut Schnabel forearm and pistol grip buttstock. The take-down lever and top lever feature beautifully subtle Engraving and a sterling silver oval is fit in the stock between the grip and toe allowing the Engraving of a three-letter monogram.  Low-post rib.

Hero's Arms Says:  This Browning Citori Privilege was built in 2001 and appears to be unfired.  It comes in the original box and has no wear or handling marks.  Two of the sideplate screws show a bit of damage from the wrong screwdriver being used, and the Stock Oval has had a former owner's initials engraved.  Hero's Arms has added a spare blank Stock Oval should you wish to replace it.  It is 12 Gauge  with 3" Chambers for 2 3/4" & 3" shells, 28" Barrels with three Invector Plus choke tubes in Full, Modified, and Improved Cylinder constrictions.  Other Invector Plus chokes are widely available. This is truly an all-around shotgun for hunting, clays or collecting.

HA1769 SKB (Mitsui) 500, (Compact Adult/ Youth) O/U, 28 Ga., 2 3/4", 28"-F-M (Used 99.9% in Box) $1,795

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This SKB 500, imported by Mitsui in the early 1980s, has seen very little use.  It appears to be in "As-New-In-Box" condition in its original box.  It is a light, six pound 8 ounce, upland hunting gun with fixed full and modified choke constrictions.  It is especially well suited to the smaller shooter with its 13 15/16" Length of Pull.  It has the legendary SKB modified Greener cross-bolt lockup, one of the strongest around.  It has the original hard plastic SKB butt plate, ideal for quick mounting.  It could also be used for Skeet of Sporting Clays.

HA1741 Browning Cynergy Field, Walnut, Adjustable LOP,  O/U, 12 Ga. 2 3/4" & 3", 26"MC Bbls., (Used 99%+), $1,795.

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Browning Cynergy Field was made in 2005 and has seen little use.  It basically looks and feels like new, with a couple of tiny marks on the bottom of the forearm.   It is currently set up with a medium Inflex recoil pad so the Length of Pull is 14 1/8" (or 14 3/8" with spacer) making it suitable for an average shooter around 5'6" to 5'10" tall.  I will however set it up and ship it with any length of pull between 13 5/8" and 15 3/8"  as desired for the same price.    It comes with flush Invector Plus chokes, Full, Modified, Improved Cylinder and 2 Skeet constrictions (added by Hero's Arms).   This gun could be used by a 5 foot 13 year old and will still fit when she is a 6'5" basketball player.  It can be used for anything, upland hunting, waterfowl, skeet, sporting clays or trap, truly a one gun solution.
