Yup, another fabulous and fabulously expensive highly engraved shotgun about which TTAG’s Armed Inteliigentsia will bitch and moan: the beautiful Browning B15 Beauchamp. C’mon guys, give it a rest. Take a minute to check out the photos and video below. Then ask yourself, if you could afford it, if money wasn’t an issue, if $20,000 was pocket change, wouldn’t you want one?

And aren’t you glad to live in a world where shotgun buyers’ hard-earned cash (inherited, whatever) keeps Browning’s craftsmen and women at work, preserving the skills needed to make a firearm like this? Check out their presser below. . .

In 1925 John M. Browning designed, and Fabrique Nationale d’Herstal in Belgium built, the first B25 over and under shotgun — considered by generations to be one of the finest over and under shotguns ever made. The B25 is still available from Browning as part of the John M. Browning Collection.

For 2017 Browning is introducing the B15 Beauchamp over and under shotgun as part of the John M. Browning Collection. The storied gunsmiths of Fabrique Nationale d’ Herstal, Belgium, will exquisitely enhance each new B15, meaning that owners of the new shotgun can expect balance and reliability from precision engineering plus the finest of aesthetic finishes.

The heart of the new Browning B15 Beauchamp Over And Under Shotgun is the locking system and technical features shared with the legendary B25. New and innovative elements include a low-profile receiver, performance enhancing mechanical triggers, back-bored Vector Pro Barrels and Invector-DS choke tubes.

  1. Beautiful!

    I want a double rifle, which would probably cost even more than this, more than a pricey shotgun. Still a cool gun and I would jump at the chance to shoot one.

    • I have been wanting this LaRue Tactical Rifle for a long time. It’s been on the back burner for a while. When the back burner is empty. . .

  2. If I had the $ to blow, damn straight I’d buy one. As is, I am lusting over a Browning Citori Lightning 20 guage that I cannot afford…

  3. Wait wait wait….

    The first paragraph of your article is spent talking down to the people who pay your bills. Have you completely lost touch?

    Not all of us have the expendable cash to buy fancy loafers and drive European sportscars you pretentious ass.

    If tongue-in-cheek was your goal you missed the mark.

    • Easy solution: start your own website. How about The Truth About Hi-points? Either that, or don’t be so sensitive.

    • Look, Matt, the poor bastard’s been bumped down to a high-end Benz from a Ferrari. He knows what suffering is.

      My 92-year-old mother knows I use decent O/’U shotguns and her late father’s favorite quail guns, some engraved. She heard me lusting over one he had sold twenty years ago. But money. She sarcastically said, “you can buy in your dream guns…when I die.” I simply said, “OK.” It sounded reasonable.

      I passed on a nice double rifle in .30-06 years ago. I could afford it, and only hunt deer in forest, a fairly short range thing in which a short double would actually be great. I haven’t seen one since, and they probably cost five times as much today. Life. My loafers are not particularly expensive….

    • Go be poor somewhere else.

      And no I couldn’t afford one either. Well actually I could go buy one right now but my family sort of needs that money…

    • Appeared to be a wood spirit I’ve only ever known to be called “The Green Man”. Google it yourselves, I’m not as into mythological research as I once was so I’ve no idea if I’m right.

  4. I buy cheaper guns than I can afford cause, let’s face it, I’m a tight bastiche.

    I only really have one complaint with high end guns. I don’t like all that engraving.

    • It does get a little hi-collared in the way all these things are pitched. Yes, it’s awesome. Very nice, very unmistakable and unmatchable craftsmanship. But it’s like a sommelier at a restaurant with a 12 year old vintage at $40 a glass. If I can afford it shut up and pour. I won’t pretend to know what you’re talking about, but if it’s good, I don’t know, I might have another glass.

  5. Wait just a minute…low profile receiver, mechanical triggers, Invector DS choke tubes? I smell a Citori 725 in drag!

  6. There are guns which are works of art. There are guns which are equivalent to “Velvet Elvis Paintings.” This is (probably) the former… I’m the market for the latter.

  7. 5 figures? Really? I get with guns like these it’s more artwork than gun. But come on. At that price it better be engraved in gold and full auto.

  8. Reminiscent of some nice drillings I saw back in the day over there. I ‘spect for that kind of change they’ll engrave whatever you choose to pay for. My Little Pony cutie marks will get you pointed and laughed at, then beaten. 😉

  9. “ask yourself, if you could afford it, if money wasn’t an issue, if $20,000 was pocket change, wouldn’t you want one?”

    Seriously?

    If $20,000 was pocket change, I would be busy buying land and yachts and Sofia Vergara. Shooting would still be something I do for fun, and I would still not have time to trifle with pretty adornments. Give me something that feels good against my shoulder and shoots well.
