Ed, I consider your opinions (Double Gun members) very useful and that's the reason I ask here my doubts.


28 ga, hammerguns and all shotguns and rifles made by hands.

y senior drew....you refer to tensile strength of steel used to fabricate shotgun barrels...

if such published data exists for any old shotgun barrels made prior to lets say 1915, would you be so kind as to share some of it with us here...

I'm sorry, Ed, but I have no information about that. The gunsmith told me that my shotgun has wide barrel wall and the oversized to 24 bore (overvored). In the barrel table there's .579: 24 bore, not 28.
That surprise me, so I'm looking for info to resolve it, but there is poorly info about Wiggan & Elliott makers.

Here you can see the Wiggan overbored barrel next to a normal SxS 28 ga.

So hope you can help me.

Ed you mentioned your standard is .090/.030 what methods are you currently using to assure that the guns you are buying or selling meet this criteria? If someone else is providing this information for you, what are they using?

The nice thing about a number is it is a number.

99.9% of all of your anxieties can go away if you can reliably produce the number.

Don’t look for magic, look for fact.

If you don’t like the number don’t buy it.


Out there doing it best I can.

well, numbers are meaningless, unless one can relate them to some scale of value...

like the number 12...by itself, hit don mean much...but when you apply it as 12 inches, and call it a foot, den it takes on ah whole lotta meaning...

same thing wid barrel wall measurements...alone, they mean little...but once applied to a standard of guidelines, then they become something of value, when applied to evaluating the safe shooting qualities of shotgun barrels...
