The Browning B25 Superposed has always created waves, ever since its launch back in 1925, and even to this day it is considered the benchmark for all over/under shotguns with its legendary engineering excellence, reliability and balance.

This gun is still made today using the same proven techniques by artisans who create these works of art purely by hand. There have since been seven generations of production-made Browning shotguns sharing the key design features of the flagship B25 but made at Miroku in Japan using the finest steels and assembled by highly skilled tradesmen and women, often by multi-generational family members who are very proud of their traditions.

In more recent times, the B15 range had its inception in 2015 and is the result of the best of both worlds.

A Miroku-made barrel and action in the white is sent to Browning in Belgium to be finished by the world-renowned Custom Shop. Here the gun is engraved by hand, stocked, chequered and oiled for that look and smell of a completely handmade gun.

There are exquisite models in the range in both 12- and 20-gauge actions, with prices ranging from £13,000 to £18,500. See them at the World Gunmakers’ Evening next Wednesday at the Tower of London.
