    No sir, I don't.

    Give us a quick review when you are finished reading it...
  3. I got it for dad for Christmas. Looked it up online after buying it for $50 and it seems people are asking $250-$400 and up for it. Not that I (or he)would want to sell it.

    It is an excellent read, Shooter13, and I highly recommend it! I found it at Sam's Club for somewhat less than retail, but it's well worth the full price if that's all you can find.:D

    Schwing's book on the Superposed contains everything you ever wanted to know, plus a bunch of stuff you can't even imagine. I wonder how many years of research went into the book?

    Have it? No. Want it? ABSOLUTELY! Problem is that all the copies that I have found have been several hundred dollars.

    Great Browning Book as the Superposed was the definitive O/U here in America. Great reading uncovering the mystery of the "Salt Wood Era" for Browning Firearms. The reader will also understand the current value of the Superposed Era in America and realize the manufacturing numbers of each gauge and how it affects current pricing.

    I found that eBay was most cost-effective.
    This book seems to be very limited, and except for a really lucky buy, $ 250, +/-, is right for a copy in nice condition.

    My wife gave me a copy of Schwing the first year it came-out - 1996. We both worked for a hunting store and got the book for $47 with our employee discount. ‘Should’ve bought several. I also wish I had saved some of the Browning catalogs and dealer price lists but as we’ve learned in the last 42 years - you can’t keep everything.

    Great book! It (along with Dick Spurzem’s wonderful examples) infected me with the passion for knowledge about the Superposed.
