Re: Browning Superposed - 1969

I think Browning's salt wood problems began to emerge in 1966, and continued until 1972. Most experts have never seen a long tang salt gun, and therefore believe that almost 100% of the salt guns had short tangs. Browning (FN) bought salted stocks as well as unsalted stocks but did not keep track.
