Can you post a photo of the name, on the opening lever? I’d love to see a clear shot of the proof marks on the barrel flats, as well, if you could. Thanks in advance, Ted

The result of a bad fall: Tang repaired, stock getting ready for repair for use as a pattern: fresh off the pantograph: These fancy back actions are tricky to head up, not much room for error: I'll post more as this project progresses.

I'll let you in on a secret. Don't tell anybody. The key to a great patterning 'Super Pigeon' load is the Remington SP-12 wad - and high quality shot of course. Remington hull, W209, 24.5 Herco.

This Simpson has been on several duck hunts. Bought a shopping cart full of 10ga 3.5" #6 Federal tungsten when Cabelas was closing them out. Took them apart and reloaded them for the 16ga. The tungsten hits them about like lead used to.
