OK - - - I'm convinced. If it's written down or you can find it on the internet it must be true.

Such a cynic wink

A.J. Aubrey listing in the 1908 Sears catalog:
"Shooting qualities- As before explained, the shooting qualities of these guns are unequaled for long distance killing, long range shooting, for penetration, pattern or target. Both barrels are full choke bore, so firmly constructed that unlike other guns, there is no recoil or kicking. That which in other guns goes into recoil in the A J Aubrey gun goes to give greater force to the shot."

There was no internet when Starr published his booklet and other articles. Drew, the guy that wrote the add for Meriden guns must have also been a used car salesman. How could you not want one ? Thanks for the old literature, it's always nice to read.

I only have experience with one jog choke that was cut by Nick Makinson in Canada long before I even dreamed of becoming a smith. He did a fine job. Gun was a two barrel set, restocked to a ridiculously long LOP before I knew better by our very own Doug Mann. I sold it to a board member from Montana. Best of luck with it Stan.

Caywood's website says in bold print that he does not jug choke damascus guns.

One down.

Lefever Arms Co stated they "Originated & Perfected" the taper system of boring. It appears the ad writer for Sears/Meriden may have been reading LAC catalogs & then went just a "Notch" higher. LAC only guaranteed 75% patterns "With all Sizes of Shot". All of the "Taper Chokes" I have had opportunity to measure were a continuous taper for the length of "The Choke" not the length of the barrel. Full choke on my Lefevers run around 4", which is longer than most Conical/Parallel chokes. A late (1946) L C Smith drawing shows a cone length for the choke of 1 9/16" & a parallel of 1", thus a total length of 2 9/16".
Note that in a LAC catalog with price list dated Jan 1, 1889 they stated their full choke would place 75% of all sizes of "Drop Shot" from #8 to FF in a 30" circle at 40 yds. They were already using the Taper Choke at that date.

As there was no mention of barrel type I passed along Caywood for reference. Both my ML are fluid steel. What age of ML are we talking of please? Thanks,

Physics defying magical barrels lead me to believe that P.T. Barnum was closely associated with the shooting community. To believe that any market valued characteristic would remain secret or undiscovered but by one person is so naive as to beggar description.
I have some pills that change water into gasoline if you have the magic beans to use in the incantation.
The gasoline can as well be used for a bore cleaner that will increase pattern density by 23.7% in certain barrel steels.

No problem, Dave. It is a percussion Manton with London fine twist barrels. Unbelievable condition. Not even any pitting around the nipples. Shows almost no use.

I had an invisible choke put in one of mine to bring it from cyl to about .010. It works great and really invisible. I had Briley do it about 10 yrs ago.
