What Daryl said, or maybe they're lettered upside down so the shooter could look down on them and admire his good buying choice while shouldering the gun.

Geo, My money is on the 28" Browning you kept, NOT being used up. Thanks for the nice gun. I can deal with shorter 26" tubes in a grouse woods, and, although the gun feels really good coming up, I think there is a leather slip on pad about

You're right Ted. The Gerest-Berthon with 1906 Didier-Drevet barrels had "7" (cm) chambers....I won'd let Dau-in-law shoot anything but 2 1/2" RST lost pressure shells from it. What I am looking for is an affordable 16 gauge, turn of

To each his own I guess. I like them all, but it is the STS for when it counts the most. It certainly has been robust, not to mention accurate, if not the most handsome.

I am amazed that this mistake has survived as I am very aware of the ease that engraving mistakes can be rectified with a peening tool and judicious striking off. My most favourite restoration engraver had a 'senior' moment when engraving the number

I've seen the game scene guns with higher prices, but, they seem to sit forever. I also prefer the scroll version, and it seems there are always a few for sale. I've heard the same production number Geo posted, with about half that number for the Bel

Articles I've read over the years have said that Browning only made about 900 of the BSS Sidelocks over the whole production period. As many as we see for sale and just around here, I wonder about that number. There's also the question of the two en

Ted, I shoot 1 oz. loads to good effect in mine at 1175 fps. using Estate SS target loads. For hunting I like the RST 1 oz. loads in 7's and 5's. I've used mine for nearly 12 years and wouldn't part with them, and I hope in time you will feel the sam

I made one out of wood and a razor blade. It has a dowel with shims under to adjust the height of the cut. It takes about 5 seconds a case to cut them off with it.

I tried several of the commercially made cutters. Most of them were pure junk and really hard to get a clean trim from. I made a simple jig out of scrap plywood to use on my chop saw and never looked back. The jig took less than ten minutes to make @

Hey all, so what's the scoop on Rio's? There seems to be two camps, those who like them and those who don't (like anything else in this world). I was wondering what you all think about them from your personal experience. I'm looking at their 1oz 2

That is quite a transition in the stock shaping from the tang, to the comb nose, wrist and comb! Also a very lloonngg forend although it looks G&H all the way with none of the hideous stock anomalies common to pre-war single shot varmint rifles.
