Bart,

If the shotgun is in good shape and locks up strong, then I don't worry about it...My old Model 12's have taken everything and seem fine. Another old Parker the same. Nothing in the ultra high velocity range, but 1165 to the upper 1200 FPS in 1 ounce loads. If the lockup is good then I worry more about 80-90 year old wood that perhaps has become soft from being oil soaked. This most recent one will have the action to wood areas bedded. One of the things that should be done with the old SxS's, is have someone who knows how to work on them-knows being important, many or perhaps most don't- take them apart and give the insides a good cleaning and lubrication. If the lock-up is weak then this would also be the time to have them address that.

For Grouse and Woodcock I manly shoot the economy Winchester, Remington, Fiocchi 1 ounce shells. For Pheasant the better shells with hard shot. Would prefer 1ounce, but often 1 1/8 is what one most often finds.

Although your suggestion of the RST offerings, from what I have been told would be an excellent choice.

I've used RST shotshells extensively in 10, 12 and 16 gauge guns with dates of manufacture back to the 1880s. They are of superb quality, albeit a bit expensive compared to those found on the Wallyworld shelves. For antique shotguns or those with short chambers, you'll be hard pressed to find a better quality shell.

Have the same gun! Great gun I seldom use. Also have an AyA in 16ga I used to use a lot but not much anymore. Along the way I tried out a 28ga that I'd had for years and never shot now 28's are really about all I shoot. But that Mod 37 and AyA of mine you couldn't buy at any price!

In reality Totally Unknown.... It does have 'W Richards' on the side plate, but so do a LOT of old Belgian guns......... I doubt very much that 'Wesley' had anything to do with this piece....

It is a 16ga x 40-40 Maynard, near as I can tell, damascus, underlever, Lefaucheaux action, covered in Belgian proofs...

Age??? somewhere near turn of the last century....

Curious, for a 'cheap' gun, the stock has a really nice brass oval inlay, and it has 'cast-off'........ sure fits nice....

And shoots.............

My Sears & Roebucks "Ranger" which I believe is a Stevens 52? Down to my last 2 J.C. Higgins XTRA RANGE #6's. I've accounted for many pheasant, both pen and wild, with this. Still enjoy carrying it in the field. Used to have a very early Remington ADL Deluxe 16ga. that I foolishly surrendered for something else bright and shiny that I no longer even remember what it was! LOL! Oh well!

Thanks. It's still looking pretty good for a 100 (+/-) yr old gun. Don't think it's been shot in over 30 yrs.

The middle on is not an original but a Parker Reproduction by Winchester....

I previously have posted this article on them; they are good enough to be included into the fold by the Parker Gun Collectors Association.

The same as Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing will make one a Fox or Model 21...
