The B26 is a massed produced gun and is very different to its hand made B25 counterparts.

During the late 1970's early 80's Browning scored highly with their handbuilt guns but were losing out big time to customers with shallower pockets.

The B26 and B27 were intended to steal some of Nikkos, Winchesters and of course despite the partnership,Miroku.

They are OK guns but rarely exceed £500 as far as value is concerned.
