Hello All,
first post here and looking for any assistance.
I have a 1950s era Browning Superposed which was originally full/full choke according to the markings. A previous owner has opened up one barrel but it still patterns very tight. It's not a collector piece - definitely has seen a lot of use over the years and has been put away damp some time in the past with subsequent light pitting on barrel exterior - bores are mirror bright - otherwise it's a nice gun to shoot.
I'm considering having it threaded for screw in chokes to improve its versatility.
I know I could probably buy a new gun for less money but I can't be bothered going through the licensing process again and I certainly couldn't buy a good Browning Superposed for the expected cost.
Does anyone know of a gunsmith in or near Perth that does this type of work that they would be comfortable recommending?
Cheers, Jim
