"These weapons were designed for smokeless powder"

This statement seems to be in contradiction of Researchers ad from 1904 where the top wording says, "Guaranteed for Nitro Powder".

Which is it?

1889 Serial Number vs Other Numbers

I have a Grade 3 1889 serial number 243907. Instead of the serial number on all the parts the number 478 is on the butt, forearm, receiver and barrels. Was the norm to number the parts different than the serial number?

F Trap Gun Problems

I was shooting trap with my F Trap gun and the 1/2 box out of the right barrel went well and ejection was ok.

Re: Thinking of buying this one

I don't know the grade of the gun but twist barrels are most likely the lowest grade. Overall condition seems nice. Screws are good, no case hardening colours left, barrels show nice figure. Appears that the butt stock may have been refinished and checkering re-cut. The wear on the forearm doesn't m...
