That's an interesting article, ninepointer. Thank you for posting the link. Its the first written place I've seen making refs to Dakin guns being Miroku's. Not sure wot the point was of calling Gough Thomas a snob was. I've all his books & read the majority of his articles as they were published & to me, that label does not fit at all. I wish there were more said regarding the model 52 & the 'My Luck' SxS's as well, but there wasn't. At least from the article one can tie the guns to a time line now.

Nine Pointer,
Tell me about the "type 3" please?

My gun pictured in first post appears identical to yours.

Jerry,

You'll find an explanation of the 4 types in the link that Dal provided. In summary, different variations of flat springs for the top-lever and ejectors were used in Types 1, 2 & 3, whereas coil springs were used in the Type 4. All 4 types used flat mainsprings.

I've heard it said that the Type 4 with coil springs is the best (heard it from a guy selling a Type 4). When I looked into getting a spare set of flat springs for my gun, I learned they're tougher to get for a 20 ga. than they are for a 12 ga. I was also told by one source, "Call me when you actually break a spring. I'll probably never hear from you."

Those who have access to back-issues of Clay Shooting USA may be able to locate an article called: "Miroku - The Best Gun Maker You Never Heard Of".

What type of spring system is used in currently made Browning Citori made by Miroku? They seem as durable and trouble free as venerable Beretta 6xx series O/Us.
