    The striking and fitting,,conversion to ejectors and the forend was done by me .Engraving by a friend. Actually found another 26 inch set now for skeet and ruffed grouse. I do poor blacking so when ready they will go to a professional.

    Fitting a new set of barrels. I decided to fit another set of barrels to my favorite 12 bore. The original 30 inch bbls are choked for sporting clays and I wanted a set of 32inch bbls choked full and full choke for trap shooting. It was a long search to find a set that I could use. After re striking and fitting and installing ejectors in the " new set " I sent them to an engraver. I will use them as is before having them rust blued.

    Finished case

    I was asking what type of glue you used because I am recovering this old double leg of mutton case . The frame appears to be made from some sort of hard board that was laminated together and I plan on using rabbit hide glue.

    I love Chesapeake's. As a matter of fact I live in Chesapeake Virginia. They are defiantly not labs . For wildfowling in tough conditions a Chessie comes into it's purpose .. Most important is to get a dog that comes from a hunting line. As in other sporting breeds they have been bred and sold for their looks more-so lately than performance in the field. Some health problems and eye problems have crept into some lines. Watch the sire and dam work. If possible. Chessies here are known for their loyalty.often its with one person in the household. With proper training not harsh but firm and consistent they are premier wildfowlers and can do a bang up job in the large pheasant hunting areas.. I've known many that fit into the family life like a Brittney a few that keep hand and arm collections. Best of luck

    Here's a picture of an unusual shotgun it's a 20 bore with fully rifled barrels. The rifling is twisted in opposite direction as in a double rifle. It will keyhole slugs at 150 yards. There are many shotgun only areas for whitetail deer hunting here

    One lowland stag to remember...

    Absolutely beautiful Red Stag. Is it from the Scottish lowlands? What type of rifle did you use?
