It represents everything we know about making guns Engraving, wood selection and finish are important, but precision is the true measure of a handmade shotgun. And tolerance is how we measure precision. The more minimal the tolerance, the better the fit between the barrels and the mechanism, and between the iron and the wood. Our gunsmiths ensure that each adjustment is as accurate and smooth as possible,* which can never be the case with industrially produced versions, where the tolerances must be greater to compensate for the imperfections present in machine-made construction. And as you can see, the heart of the B25 is the mechanism itself, John M Browning’s masterpiece. The result is a refined and beautifully balanced, fully bespoke shotgun.
This is the shotgun that Browning aficionados have been waiting for. Ninety years, in fact, from the B25’s groundbreaking debut. Like its eminent forerunner, the B15 has been conceived, developed and perfected by the world-renowned gunsmiths of the Fabrique Nationale de Herstal. You can expect precision engineering and the finest of aesthetic finishes. You can expect balance and reliability. But what you might not expect is the sheer abundance of possibilities for personalisation. There are four grades to choose from, depending on your budget. From barrel length, wood grade and style of grips, to a comprehensive selection of engraving patterns for sideplates, trigger guards and butt plates, the scope is potentially limitless. If personality goes a long way, the B15 takes it further.
