On the other end of the scale we could consider Edwin Hedderly's 32-inch 28-gauge Parker Bros. --

Hedderly and his long barrel small-bore Parkers were probably best known to west coast readers of his articles in Western Field magazine of which he was editor in the years before The Great War.

Yup, I agree. A truly ugly chop job. Probably by Elmer's friend Iver Hendrickson.

The 2 7/8" Ithaca NID Super 10 is a wonderful duck gun and its younger bigger brother the 3 1/2" magnum 10 of course is about as purpose built a duck or goose gun as exists. I hunt with both but the magnum is heavy though well balanced. A 30 inch barreled 3" Browning BSS works pretty well too.

On introduction in 1923, Hunter Arms referred to their gun as the "Long Range Wild Fowl", but shortly thereafter the gun was advertised and cataloged only as the "Long Range". Hunter Arms records show that one was made in 1921 and an Eagle Grade Long Range in 1922. Only 14 were made in 1923. Total production of Long Range shotguns (1921-41) was 2,606. The "Wild Fowl" name was used 1940-1942 and 98 were made.
Additional information may be found in the Spring 2013 Double Gun Journal Volume 24, Issue 1, p. 137.

Not all LRWF had 3" chambers and if so, had the football "CHAMBERS 3 INCHES" mark on the barrel flats. The top gun has the "reinforcing wedge"

You owe it to yourself to try bismuth #4s, Francis. I won't say it kills like lead, but it's close. NICE shot is supposedly even closer. I'll find out next duck season. And, these new BOSS copper plated bismuth .................. they ought to be bad to the bone, b-b-b-b-bad, b-b-b-b-bad, bad to the bone. (Thanks, George T and the Destroyers)
