    Hi Paul......welcome to TFF.

    Neither the Blue Book or Standard Catalog of Firearms lists a SxS shotgun in the FN section. The do list an SxS under Browning (most Browning firearms were made by FN).

    It was a boxlock with automatic ejectors and was made between 1971 and 1988 by B.C. Miroku (Japan).

    From the Blue Book:

    "B-SS - 12 or 20 ga.m, 26, 28, or 30 in. barrels, vareious chokes, engraved boxlock action, auto ejectors, checkered pistol grip walnut stock, beavertail forearm, SST. Mfg. 1971-1988 by Miroku.

    95% - $475
    90% - $400
    80% - $365
    70% - $330

    Last MSR was $775"
