Fieldsport just got a shipment in the last week. John at Pacific Sporting Arms has had a 16 ga. Plantation Sporter on order for a year and a half now for me. They show up in spurts but not big ones.

SKB SxS are made by Dickinson and they were in the middle of redesigning them before the Roid hit. Selective triggers, Winchester 21 forearm, choke tubes with slots instead of Teague style and a few other things modified from previous runs. Nothing coming in there as of the last year plus.

I was under the impression that both SKB and Dickinson were made by AKUS. Do you have evidence to the contrary?

They both are. They are basically the same gun, different name

SKB is more of an importer now, much like Charles Daly and in the same way are made to specs and price points. SKB imports both akus and Akdas shotguns. Link takes you to the story of SKB and history.

The rest of the US such as PSA and Fieldsport, etc. go through Dickinson USA in Ca. I talked to them about a 16/20 combo and they told me no way. They have a lifetime warranty and use a company in Oregon for gunsmithing.

3 years ago I picked up a 32" Plantation Sporter from PSA.

Like you if I am going to shoot a 12 I'm going to shoot a 12 damn it LOL. Had an ISIS recoil reducer added and adjustable comb cut. LIked it so much a year later picked up a 30" 20 ga. Plantation Sporter from John at PSA again.

I shoot it lights out, better than any other gun I own and I own more than a few. A 16 ga. 32" should fit right in the middle and be the goldilocks of them. At least in theory. For the last 2 years I have been shooting these guns almost exclusively on clays and I shoot a lot of clays.

Called SKB and talked to them about getting SK chokes for my 20 because Dickinson USA was out. Ended up talking to the gunsmith and he gave me the usually no guarantees they will fit etc. and I said you want to bet money on it? He laughed and we had a good conversation about the future of SKB guns. SKB does their own gunsmithing for warranty work. At the end of the conversation I told him SKB is dropping the ball by not offering any 16 ga. guns. He felt they never would but that things could change down the road.

Interesting, but you said Dickinson makes SKBs. Can you support that?

The link you provided says this: "The new line of SKB Shotguns are being produced, under a license agreement, by two factories in Turkey. The Akus and Akdas factories are considered to be two of Turkey’s best shotgun manufacturers, with a history of producing quality products for both the US and European markets".

How do you derive from the above that Dickinson makes them?
