I have a Browning BPS that I bought from my dad a few years ago, and I recently found out that replacement barrels have interchangeable choke tubes (which would be really nice). However, I noticed that all the newer BPS shotguns seem to be labeled Hunter, Stalker, Upland Special, Deer Special, Turkey Special, etc. According to Browning's website, you should be able to identify the BPS type with the serial number.

My serial number ends in "RP112", and 112 is not listed as a BPS type. The best answer I can find is at WikiAnswers, and they say my shotgun is the "standard field gun."

So what kind of replacement barrel should I order for mine?

My current barrel reads: "**- BPS Special Steel 12GA-2 3/4" and 3" Field Model - 26""

You could have a gunsmith take a look at it, and see if he could thread the barrel for you. That would cost just a fraction of the cost of a new barrel.

Is that a pretty standard request for a gunsmith? Can I trust pretty much anyone to do it properly?
I asked a gunsmith here in my town about it. His reply was if the smith has been in the same shop for more then two years then he is a good gunsmith. Yes they thread shotgun barrels all the time. Average cost between 35.00 to 45.00
