I recently acquired a pre-war 12-gauge Superposed with serial number “944P”, which I believe was manufactured in 1931. The gun is in pretty good condition (see pics) and has two triggers- each one fires a single barrel. The only issues that I can see on it is a crack in the rib (see red circle in pics). I shot a couple rounds of trap with it on Saturday and it worked wonderfully. Im not quite sure what to do with this gun and a few scenarios are bouncing around my head: 1. Send it to a real Browning expert gunsmith for full restoration to like-new condition, sparing no expense. Is there even a gunsmith with ‘knowledge and expertise in these early guns to do such a restoration? 2. Have the rib repaired at a local gunsmith 3. Repair the rib myself (I’m not exactly a novice when it comes to metal fabrication) 4. Do nothing and leave the gun the way that it has been for the last however many years. If anybody would like to weigh in with their thoughts, it would be much appreciated. To be honest, I don’t know enough about the value of these guns to know how the various scenarios will affect the value of the gun, so any insights would be very helpful. As is, can anybody give me an approximate value of the gun? I know what the Blue Book says, but I’m really interested in hearing from some of you Browning experts.
