Enamored again. To fully become infatuated I'd need true removable side locks with 7+ real pins. A current base model starts @2 for this boxlock.
FUN FACT: Maybe irritating to our American sensibilities: Box locks are considered "truck/barn" guns to well heeled Britishers but the side/box lock debate is still present. We won the Revolution with side locks.
ANOTHER FUN FACT: The only American side lock double gun was briefly produced in New York by LC Smith: It's moniker: "Sweet Elsie".
I'd take out a loan for the above on a true 16 frame or a 2 bbl set 16/20 (2 3/4) like from Merkel. While I love to gaze and admire; I truly don't GAS about checkering, case coloring or engraving.
Sweet doubles have a place in the "Coffee" thread.
That is all:
I've read Gauge Mates alone produce decent patterns within a few thousandths of reason.Just a thought sv advid skeet shooter's shoot sub gauge events with they're tried and proven well fitted 12ga.,they have a custom shotgun tooling company like "briley" make sub guage tubes 410 and up,this way shooter has one well fitted scatter gun to shoot multiple sub gauge events rather then trying to use multiple shotguns which all fit differently and poi varies as well as trigger pull and lop ( length of pull)
