Whitmore Hammer Lifter re-stock

This 1873 Grade 3 need quite a bit of work.
The Arizona Black Walnut came from a stump that I picked up while hunting quail 25 years ago!

2shooter,
So you have them! What an advanced collection you must have amassed.
Any photos of the graded guns would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Bill West--historian, author

2shooter, I am not specifically looking for any years but always looking for ones that I don't have. It was nice to have access to collectors that could compile and re-print catalogs. I also like Shotgun News!

Bill West--historian, author

In the late 70's and 80's I bought a few of Bill West's books on Remington Guns.
Also reprints of catalogs and such from Rolling Block Press, Brea, CA sold by McKee Publications
I can't find any references or sources for these authors, anybody have sources?

Re: Model 31L 20 gauge with TC wood?

It might have been up-graded as a light weight trap gun. Light weight often translates "kicks like a mule".
Very nice looking 31!

Re: 32 30” Standard Grade

The Galazan is what I used, sand to give the shape and finish you want. Wax with Renaissance Wax for a nice low shine!

A 32 that is yours is a good thing! I would get an over sized pad from CVA to fix the length of pull issue. I have done this for an 1894 that was cut short.

Re: FE Trap restoration

Thank you for the photo posting. I don't think that graded Remingtons give up much to the Foxes and Parkers!

Remington Model 10

I am curious if any collectors have seen any Model 10D, F, T"s with a damascus barrel? I have read but not seen that the Winchester Model 97 could be purchased with the damascus option.
