Broadway Lightning?

With a little planning and a lot of luck, I picked up a beautiful 1964 Browning Superposed for a song at an auction today.

It appears to be the Broadway trap model. It has the big 5/8 inch rib. But the receiver says Lightning, not Broadway, on the bottom.

Is this correct?

Thanks!
Dave

Yes. At least my trap gun with Broadway rib is also marked Lightning.

Yes, that's the model name - Broadway Lightning Trap

What song did you sing to get it?

A ridiculously short one... $775 for a gun that's at least in 95% condition.

Thanks to all for your help!
