About 5 years ago I put a Briley Companion 20 ga tube set in a 2 1/2" chamber Parker DH with Damascus barrels. I simply filed back the exterior forcing cone-chamber area until I achieved the proper fit. Works fine and I believe safe with double

It is a bargain. It has beautiful, long, in proof tubes, choked about CYL and FULL, and I wish I had room in my safe for it, and a use not covered by the dozen or so 12s already here. Double triggers and no ejectors give it an edge in reliability. I

Hey I am not arguing your point but the market is what it is today. Now days people complain about the price of a gun like that Green.

The E.C. Green you have at $1250, vs a $1000 sleever pretty much makes my point. I donít have anything Iíd trade for a sleeved gun, either. Best, Ted

John Foster did truly invisible sleeving. I have imported guns he sleeved and the work was superb. For me it comes down to price point for what is being bought or sold. I buy a few sleevers and I sell a few. Never for big money but if I can put a g

Best is a weird term. Iím not sure Iíd call a monobloc best work. The skill to knit two chopperlump barrels together seems more best to me. But, my money would still be on a monoblock gun passing the old French triple proof level of 27,000 psi. Beca

Why not Briley SideKicks? I know they work for 2-5/8" Parkers because I have a set for a Damascus hammer Parker 12. Briley will ask you what kind of gun they are for and will engrave that maker's name on the SideKicks. Something about rim dep

Mark, how hard would it be to fit a orphan set of barrels. I have created some two barrel sets with LC Smiths. I think the Lefever would be a little more difficult. Then you have a set of barrels to alter and keep the other original.

Thanks Bill. I regularly shoot it with RST's and reloads, so I don't want to alter it. It's a very effective upland gun as is. I just like the idea of making it more versatile. In the end, I probably should just get a modern target gun and call it

Ted, you've made it clear you don't think sleeving is an acceptable method of renovating a barrel damaged double. Do you take that position from a safety concern or the aesthetic? Probably a mixture of the two, but assume a well done sleeve by an ex

Try Briley for a chamber adjustment. If you don't plan to shoot the damascus it will be safe. I am not sure that Briley would recomend shooting steel through soft Al. tubes. bill

Oh. I didn't know that. Gun has 2 5/8" chambers. You would think they could adjust 1/8" somehow. I have a krupp steel Lefever wit 2 7/8" chambers, but it's already a heavy gun. Tube sets would put it over 8lbs. Hmmm...

Briley won't do tubes for chambers under 2 3/4. Make your own or is there another manufacturer?

L. Brown, my gun does have these features, with the rib being low, ventilated, and concave on top. At a quick glance, its hard to tell that it is vented. The stock has a black plastic buttplate marked CD and black plastic grip cap. Fore-end removal i

Be sure your screwdriver blade is not too wide. Some countersinks for screws have tapered sidewalls, so even though the blade of the screwdriver fits nicely into the visible slot, the edge of the blade may be catching the sidewall below the surface

Gough Thomas, gun editor of the British Shooting Times and author of several books on shotguns, regarded the stepped monobloc an aesthetic plus. He drew parallels between the stepped bloc and ancient columns.

Depending on where the screw is, you might try an impact driver with the bit modified to fit the slot. Garrett Wade sells a small one I think. I bought one from an auto parts store and filed a bit to fit the holes in the striker disc. The advanta
