“Best pump shotgun I've ever owned”

Written on: 24/11/2014 by rylwulf (1 review written)

My experience with pump shotguns goes back a very long way...clear back to the original Winchester model 12. This is by far the best of the lot. I only hunt quail (I live in AZ now.)but I shoot clay birds a lot and it's more than adequate. The pull is a bit longer than many other shotguns, which fits me perfectly… Read Full Review

“Browning high capacity all weather bps 12g”

Written on: 20/02/2013 by Joseph30511 (2 reviews written)

Beautiful shotgun. You can use it from defense to hunting small and large game. Recoil is acceptable and its has the simplest action. As a lefty it's perfect. The shells are discharged downwards. It's light enough to carry in the bush and be manageable for most game. Highly recommend. Dollar for dollar it is a great purchases and investment. Browning is not making any more. Just a short run… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/10/2010

Have been hunting with the BPS Hunter 3" 12 Gauge for just over a year. It never misses. Turkey, goose, and duck. Turkeys with 3" Steel Shot #4 are incredibly good. Never have missed one. This gun shoots the perfect "golden pellet". Overall, just a great gun, especially since I am right handed but shoot left handed. The bottom eject is perfect. Just as good as my old Winchester 1300 I gave to my son… Read Full Review

“Excellent shotgun. I bought mine in near new...”

Written on: 26/04/2009

Excellent shotgun. I bought mine in near new condition from an older gentleman who was starting to slow down on his hunting and shooting. It has a nice smooth and reliable action, slightly more solid and quieter than an 870 (and an 870 is an excellent gun). I have shot skeet and trap, hunted deer, turkey, waterfowl, pheasants, grouse, woodcock, and rabbit without a single problem. It is a slightly heavy gun when compared to some of the newer lightweights, but this has benefits as well as… Read Full Review

“The BPS is a clearly superior design to the Remington...”

Written on: 04/09/2008

The BPS is a clearly superior design to the Remington 870. There are fewer moving parts -- the loader bars double as the ejection bars, so it is impossible (at least, I've never done it) to short-cycle the gun and jam a shell under the ramp, as is common in 870s and their clones. The enclosed action eliminates rain and snow intrusion into the action and cuts down on dirt. I use my marsh-camo, synthetic-stock 3.5 inch 12 gauge as my goose gun and have abused it in brackish water for four years… Read Full Review

“Currently own 3 BPS shotguns. A 3" Stalker, a 3"...”

Written on: 31/05/2008 by gadgethunter (1 review written)

Currently own 3 BPS shotguns. A 3" Stalker, a 3" Hunter, and a 3.5" dipped in Mossy Oak camo. The Hunter is the smoothest cycling of the bunch., and the wood looks pretty. The camo model came with a synthetic butt stock that had some cast-off designed into it. Not very nice for lefties like me. Other 2 models are neutral. Sent it away to a Browning warranty gunsmith. He sent it back unannounced with a note saying all camo stocks have this cast off to them. Called Browning in the states, they… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/03/2008 by branthunter (1 review written)

I hunt 90% in salt marsh country and love my BPS (had it 20 yrs. and now have 3 in 12G.), I have several doubles but this gun handles more naturally for me . I originally bought it because I liked the heft of it (it's a bit heavier than an 870, which I like as I think it gives a more consistent swing). I've used the first one I got so much that there is no bluing on it (due to using steel wool to get the salt rust off) and the rib is saddle backed in several spots but it's still a killer.Due to… Read Full Review

The BPS is one of the best pump shotguns available. Great for the left-handed shooter or anyone who likes collecting his empties after firing. A great gun at a much lower price than a Browning over/under. Highly recommended… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/11/2006 by Waylayed06 (1 review written)

Over all, I consider the Browning BPS to be the best deal for your hard earned money If you want a quality gun that will pattern way better than most guns 3 times the price, and will not let you down in the field no matter what your quarry may be, from doves, pheasants, turkey, and big game such as deer or wild boar, from bird shot to the heaviest magnum buckshots, I promise you that you will not be disappointed. Since I have owned my BPS, I have encountered numerous owners as well who are also… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/10/2008

I have a new BPS, love it. However, I too would like a little less recoil. Which Limbsaver pad did you put on yours, and, was it very difficult to remove the factory pad and install the Limbsaver? Thanks.

“The Browning 12ga BPS and the Remington 870 express...”

Written on: 08/09/2004 by gr8whitehunter (1 review written)

The Browning 12ga BPS and the Remington 870 express are the two smoothest guns I have ever shot. I like the BPS because of the bottom ejection, keeps the empties at your feet rather than somewhere in the bushes near by. The top tang safety is instinctive to use and easy to check with just a touch of your hand. The wood is really gorgeous. Light enough to walk around in the field with all day but heavy enough that 3 inch mags don't tear your shoulder off… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/05/2004 by goosedoctor (1 review written)

The Browning 12ga BPS Sporting Shotuns action is almost silky in nature and delivers quick, crisp follow-up shots (as long as the shooter's arms are long enough to comfortably reach the forearm). 3-inch chamber can handle any loads without jamming or sticking and fires plenty of power to fold up any game. I've shot everything from pheasants to geese with a lot of success in between. The BPS I shoot actually dropped a big honker from 70+ yards with steel #3's last year. Call it "The Golden BB"… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/02/2003 by Steve. (1 review written)

I bought the Browning BPS 12ga primarily for its bottom load/eject feature since I'm a lefty.Out of the box the gun patterned almost perfectly with all three chokes at thirty yards with 1.125 oz shot. Pattern was centered left/right and approx 3 inches high of target.
Shooting doubles at trap this is a very fast and accurate gun. In duck-blinds shooting sporting clays the gun is comfortable and predictable. Browning also included a trigger lock for free. I would rate this Japanese-made shotgun… Read Full Review
