Hi all, for those who have one, how is single trigger on this gun? Reliable? Heavy pull?

Not interested in the DT model, just the ST model.

Also, are the bbls thick enough for steel shot (size 3 and smaller) in IC/Mod?
Any help would be great!

Thanks!!!

Greg

I don't know about the single trigger, as I never buy single trigger side by sides..........

As far as the barrels go, the new ones just posted within the last week at Cabela's all have 5 choke tubes that come with the guns...12, 16 and 20......imported by IAC, Billerica, MA. - (Interstate Arms Corp.).....

I just bought a new Dickinson DT 28" 16 GA from them, to go with my DT S & W 20 GA, and the barrels are thick enough for steel or anything else you want to shoot through them .....

Here's some pictures of the new choke tube muzzle on my 16.....In my opinion they did a really nice job with these choke tubes, very sanitary set up with a slight flush recess and ABSOLUTELY NO BARREL BULGE.........friction spanner wrench to insert and change the choke tubes, nice set up I think.......

Sorry, still covered in packing grease and lint......

Not sure about the new Dickinson model but I heard mixed reviews on the STs back when they were imported by S&W. I'd prefer the double for sure. Why are you interested in the ST?

I like those chokes. Very clean looking and attractive.

Jerb, here's the pictures of the new 16 that I promised you on the PM....gun is cleaned up and ready to go.....

I included some pictures of the choke system and associated tool and also some pictures of the Southgate ejector spring removal so you could see that as well......I personally don't care for ejectors and it's simple to pull the springs and put them back in should you want too..........

Best Regards,

Impressive. IMO, they isn't a better new SXS available for that kind of money.

Blued barrels, not black chrome. Nice case colors. Appears from the available photos to have a long slender fore-end. The appearance of the guns the Turks build just keep getting better and better.

Have you checked for barrel regulation yet, Doug?
