So true, but isn't it great that you can buy a Beretta, or nearly any other well made Italian ST gun, and have a 99+% chance of getting a great one that will last for tens of thousands of cycles without a hint of trouble, for a fraction of the cost of a Purdey?

But then, one wouldn't have a Purdey, would one?

SRH


Could be. Iíve only deliberately purchased one gun that had a single trigger. It went down the road.
The single trigger O/U that my Dad bought was awarded to my son. If I get another O /U someday, it will have double triggers.

Probably wonít be a Purdey.

Best,
Ted

What then Ted if not a Purdey? A Fabbri, :a Woodward, or Boss or a Holland?

Well, Buzz, it would have to be something that looked very good next to a can of domestic beer on the bench in my shop, when I was cleaning it. Perhaps just a bit more deluxe than a Marlin model 90.

But, not much more deluxe.

Best,
Ted

If I am not mistaken, John Milius had his Purdeys built with Fabbri triggers, which seem to work fairly well. I believe the pictured gun belonged to Milius. Correct me if I am incorrect. On another point, dedicated pigeon guns made by Purdey are among the most sought after 12 bore Purdeys out there. Average Purdey 12 bore game guns are very common and sometimes sell for bargain prices. The Purdey market, admittedly, is probably headed for a bit of a correction.

Murph,
Quite plausible that John had Purdeys with Fabbri triggers, as he seemed infatuated with Fabbri guns in the short time I spent with him before his stroke.

If it says winchester it's genuine. A csmc will be advertised as a csmc model 21. As far as the rizzini thing goes, yes they are identical actions, a copy if you will. They aren't the only ones that copy or share actions. I wouldn't spend that much on one of their O/Us, but that's probably not a bad price. They have straight or open PGs in all levels of englishesque ornamentation; more so than the B. Rizzinis and I don't care for round knob or pow grip. I would however spend 2K on an American made o/u and did so with the revelation. The more I handle it the finer I think it is. They have a very nice trigger, eject strongly, and evenly, and pattern well. mine has a fine piece of wood on both the stock and fore end. The model 21 o/u, the inverness, and revelation all share the same action, though mine is not dowelled (they've gone up to 2.4K and for that I might look at something else!). Anyway, when they sell a Winchester, it's a Winchester. The one in question sounds like a good heavy skeet gun and it's got the rib for it. It looks beautiful.

Wrong re Winchester. There are fakes out there. If it doesnít letter, itís not real. Also, rumor has it, there are even fake letters too. Just because it says Winchester, doesnít mean itís real. Give us a break....we arenít all that dumb.

Understood. I was only saying that if csmc made it, it won't say winchester in their add. I suppose they should say in their adds whether there is a letter. That would make sense.
