Miroku Corporation a Japanese firearms manufacturer located in Nankoku, Kochi Prefecture. Their products include shotguns produced for Browning Arms Company and rifles licensed by Winchester Firearms. In European markets, these products are sold under both the Miroku and Browning brand names. Charles Daly Firearms of the United States imported Miroku O/U shotguns throughout the 1960s to early 1970s. Afterwards, Miroku found a new outlet for the O/U models under Browning, explaining the similarities from late models imported by Daly to early Browning Citori Type 1 models. This also coincides with FN and Miroku's joint buyout of Brownings stock in 1977.
