Browning B725 20 bore

The Browning B725 had a lot to live up to in replacing Browning‘s ageing but extremely successful B525. Thankfully, the Belgium-based company produced a gun which has proved popular  with the public and critics alike since its launch in the first half of 2013.

With the arrival of the B725 in 2011 it seemed that the long, celebrated life of Browning’s 525 line of guns would come to an end.

Popular second-hand semi-autos

Beretta ES100 Forty years ago, a semi-auto was a cheap gun, selling for a few hundred pounds. Then, as the guns became more mechanically complex, prices crept up until a “semi” sold for as much as a fairly good over-and-under. Prices seemed to be locked into an upward spiral until budget-…

Browning 725 Grade 5

The Browning 725 has been around for a year or more and has been well received. Now comes the Grade 5 — which, for those who are more used to names rather than numbers is the equivalent of what was known as the “Prestige” on the 425 and 525. Mechanically,…
