I've scanned the archives, and can't find much discussion of Iver Johnson Skeeters. I'm interested to learn more, then perhaps start looking for one to adopt.

What I think I know so far is 20ga was the most common, all had 28 inch barrels with open chokes, most were DT, and factory LOP was typically 14 inches. At least some weigh around 8lbs.

Is any gauge considered generally to have the best handling qualities? Are pistol grips as common as straight grips? Were there different grades?

Thanks for any of your knowledge,

GG

The grip is what it is and no, there aren't higher grades. An ejector gun with Miller trigger is as "graded" as they get. The smallbores can get pretty bulky. My 30" .410 weighs over 7 pounds, and contrary to what the ad says, my .410 has a full pistol grip with cap.
