I bought one of these at a gun show this weekend because it looked new and the price seemed low for a Browning (less than $400). Thought I could always throw it in the truck as a back-up for my Superposed. I don't know anyting about these, are they any good? Thanks for your input.

The Browning B2000 was a good gas operated shotgun. I bought mine back in 74 and just traded it off this year. Browning no longer has parts for them, but some outfit in Canada bought up there remaing stock.

I came across a web page the other day where they had new barrels for 70 to 80 dollars.

The only part I had fail was the firing pin. I put a ton of rounds through it as a hunting firearm, and shot a lot of skeet with it.

What gauge did you get?

Howdy Gizmo99,

It's South Carolina!!! Not Southern Kalifornia:D

Yep, The B2000 was a good firearm. I think they were taken out of production when the B-80 came on line.

It had been sitting in the vault for the last few years with out being used, so I did a little swapping around a couple of months ago. Almost wish I had not done that...

Thanks for the welcome:)

Thanks for the reply. It's a 12ga Mod (2 *'s on the barrel). It's certainly not a light weight but had pretty wood and looked like it hadn't been shot or handled very much. From my "handle" I guess you can figure out I was raised north of the border in North Carolina, but I was born and spent my first six years in Florence S.C. ;)

Well, I think you did OK... We will have to forgive ya for moving up to Yankee Country :D

I think 2 stars means it's a modified choke. Some body jump in here and correct me if I'm wrong.

I think you wwill be happy with it.
