Hi all, say, do any of you 28ga Dickinson owners know what the bore diameter is on your Dickinson? And with that, are the choke tubes close to what they are marked?

I know you have to pattern the gun, but I just looking for some ballpark figures.

Thanks!

Greg

Ok,
my buddies gun is still here so....

Full .523
IM .528
M .536
IC .538
Cyl .542

rear diameter of chokes are between .555 and .559 measured with dial calipers. I screwed in the choke that measures .555 at the back, and the bore looks like it will be close to .542, given the size of the step.
I don't have a bore gauge here at the house.

Kind of wierd numbers.

If I remember correctly, my 28-gauge cylinder marked choke measured a negative .003 constriction.

Thanks Bill!! I did order a small caliper, so I should be able to measure my 20's as well.

Thanks again!

How does she shoot?? smile
You going to have to bend the barrels around a tree? or bag of shot or eat some cheesecake to make the jowls thicker?
What fun, what fun to test new guns.

Hey Mike, I did take her out when I first got her, shot well, didn't pattern it except for clays. Broke more than I missed (my fault not the gun). The LOP is too long for me, got some cheek slap, so she's at the Smith now. Getting a plate put on her as we speak.

Best,

Greg

Hi, I don't have a gauge, but the triggers are light and very crisp. To be honest, they are a bit better or equal to some of my Brit guns.

Now, my Dickinson 16ga with a ST is another story. The pulls have no creep but are heavy. They are ok for hunting, but wouldn't want them if I was in a Clay's Competition.

Best,

Greg
