“BPS” is Browning’s acronym for Best Pump Shotgun. And they’ve now gotten 50 plus years of production from the basic design that’s been enhanced across time. The materials are picked for beauty, strength, decreased weight or combinations thereof. The receiver starts from a solid block of steel that’s forged for extra-strength and to remove imperfections. Then it is machined.
BPS barrels feature Back-Bored Technology for ideal barrel bore diameters to reduce shot deformation for tighter shot patterns. For instance, for 12-gauge, Browning calculates the ideal bore diameter is .742″. Thus, it’s used on those guns. It has similar tests and calculations for other gauges.
