It has no rib, to save weight obviously, but has a short "stub rib" fore and aft.

YMMV Stan, but it seems to me that since a raised rib on a SxS just looks god awful. Seems more at home on a O/U or single barreled gun. Basis for less complaints? Maybe. This only comes from a perspective of aesthetics though and not functionality.

Interesting question, and timely.

Right before hunting season started while shooting SC it doubled on me and then became a single shot. Have ~8K rounds through it.

They have a Lifetime Warranty and I just called them today about it. The guy I talked to about it said that is the first 12 or 20 that has had that issue and he wanted the serial number so that he could track it. He did say that they had a few 28 and 410's that had the trigger issue after ~6K or so rounds but no 12 or 20 ga. guns. So sounds like he was being honest about it.

I asked if I could take it to a large gun repair shop near me that fixed my Winchester 23 that had the same issue and if so could they order the parts from Dickinson in Ca. He said that they prefer that I send it to the Oregon repair shop so that they could take a detailed look at it and inspect the rest of the internals.

He told me to call back in a month and he would give me a detailed report on the repair work and inspection.

Thanks, CI. I've seen so many single trigger probs on Turkish guns. I just have my doubts that they've got single triggers as reliable as, say, a Beretta. Double trigger guns they've made seem to be 100% reliable. My two-trigger Dickinson S X S Estate hasn't given one single problem.

Best, SRH

Good to see someone is now making the effort!


An AYA built replica of Percy Stanbury's Webley 400 would be my choice, I've never liked a raised rib on a side by side like Greener's Blue Rock Pigeon gun or the more modern Model 23. I can see the attraction of the CSMC though.


For hunting I don't normally like a rib although it isn't a show stopper for me. I like the raised rib on my Plantation Sporters for clays. And Winchester 23.



The 2 Winchester 21's to the left of my 23 have raised ribs and don't often hear many people complain about them, but not sure why many consider them "OK". The 16 ga. AyA ░2 in the rack on my buggy is of course not a raised rib. Wish I would had taken a picture from the other side now LOL.

Not much. I let my shooting create my shotgun credibility. I have been beaten by lesser guns.

But, I'll make yOu an offer. Set up a round of sporting clays at your local club and I'll shoot against yOu next time I pass through Memphis, which will be in the next few weeks with a little cooperation from the ducks over on the L 'Anguille. I'll shoot my 28 ga. junk Verona against yOur 12 ga. 101. That's right, a 28 against a 12, factory loads, heads up. Winner gets bragging rights. Loser pays for the winner's round of clays. A picture of the scorecard gets posted on here. I would offer to shoot you for pink slips but I don't want a 12 gauge 101 any more than yOu want a 28 gauge Verona.

Damn Stan, I haven't logged on here in months - going on years - but I do admit to a sort of voyeuristic weakness that brings me back once in a while. Your offer seems legit; I hope it's accepted. My bet's on you!
