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.
The new B15 will be offered in four grades with a choice of exceptional engravings and wood grades. Varying buttplates and forearm styles are also availabe in the four grades of the B15.
