Ok, I'll share.. Below is an SKB model 880 Crown Grade in 12 gauge and it's my absolutely favorite shotgun.. According to Ithaca (I have a letter from them somewhere around here) they made/imported only 60 of these; half with 30" barrel, half with 32's.. Mine's a 30". A few 880s were made as a combo set and a few in 20 gauge, but overall these are quite rare.. I bought this brand spankin' new in 1980 and it's still in better than 98% condition..







I take it out about once a year for a round of trap just for kicks.. And yeah, it still breaks clays with the best of 'em.. I wouldn't sell it for anything..

Excellent work.. Is it just the pix and light combo that makes the fore-end look more reddish than the buttstock?

Very nice piece 'o wood...


Part of it's the lighting, but mainly it's my mistake. I had put it into the barrel to amonia fume when I got a call which took me out of town right pronto. I forgot to take it out of the barrel and no amount of time with the butt would make them match.

I love that checkering pattern on your SKB. I've considered something similar to that on my A5 but as dificult as that stuff is to chisel, it might be a nightmare to checker.

Hey pullit, thanks for the pic. I still haven't read up yet on how to do that.

I wish. I used the old beat up factory butt to make a pattern that fit me properly and then had Donnie Gemes duplicate it on his pantograph. Sure wish I were that talented though, wouldn't be working a 7-3 five day week at the plant. Semi-inlets are as far as I have advansed so far.

This is true, Old World Craftsmanship. This is a 10 bore on a massive 8 bore frame. A beautiful piece of wood with painstaking handfitting in both wood and locks. A Burmingham England gun with Westley Richards action, Stanton sidelocks, Thomas Kilby & Sons damascus barrels. The engraving is fine and the fences around the hammers as well as the hammers themselves, speak of nothing but craftsmanship. A pleasure to own and shoot, but a tad heavy for a day in the field. It has 32 inch barrels and weighs 12 1/2 pounds....

You sir, make me green with envy.
The only 'old world' double I have is a 1915 Husqvarna Mod.20. But I will brag, she's a lot lighter than 12 1/2#.

Now I'm gonna' hafta' clear my bench again to put a backdrop down.
