Yes, even though I only recommended the "B" guns,I wouldn't shy from a Japanese SKB.

The only reason I didn't mention one is because there are both older Japanese and newer Turkish SKB's available used,and the resale on a used B gun is good enough that if you buy used you shouldn't loose much if anything on a resale ,and sell it quicker than if you were selling a used SKB,unless of coarse you get and sell the SKB at a steal.

Just me, but I wouldn't TOUCH a Turkish-made SKB...

SKBs are very good shotguns, btw..

I have only seen the pics he sent and agree that most likely it is a field mode from what I can see of the rib.
It was the silver trigger that indicated a field model to me. Competition models had gold triggers.. The earlier ones from the '70s-'80s, once into the 700/800/880 series, all had gold triggers and 1/2" wide ribs.. Narrow ribs came on the 600/605 series and under..

I still have my 880 Crown Grade.. Haven't used it for a dozen years now.. I miss shooting, but it's just not too convenient around here any longer..
