Ted,

I'm NJ born and raised, but more from the Philadelphia region of NJ.

I left my heart in the southwest, though. To be fair, it was never really in Jersey.

Good luck Geo! Your pics of your early spring turkeys motivate me to get up at 3:00AM and get the job done when the season starts up here.

It's a 16 gauge Halifax, circa 1930's I think. Any grade higher than that would make me nervous when I'm scrambling up and down the scree and crag.

Pretty much just the shape of the stock. The R-10 will have a continuation of the oval in front of the separation between the butt-stock and fore-end, the Halifax, as pictured in LeFusil's post above doesn't. Folks more expert than myself will likely mention other differences...Geo

And Geo, doesn't the Halifax have the word "Halifax" stamped on the barrel flats? Gil

Halifax: basically an R action Darne. No orbtirator disk. Has 1 piece solid, brazed barrels. Usually a raised rib, special order swamped rib was available, no "plume" rib that is seen on most graded Darnes. Halifax is usually stamped in the key lever, the barrel flats will have the marking too with the addition of Darne license and the grade of Halifax. The grades are indicated by a number. Usually a 3 (common) thru #5. 5's having some additional options like engraving.

So in laymans terms....it's a very basic R action Darne.

Here is the last photo from the 2015/16 season. For fun a member of our group brought a Belgian 4 Gauge double for us to shoot when we were done with hunting pheasant. It made for a very memorable end of the season.
