A friend of mine has an older one that I fell in love with so I bought one. Sold it to a friend to help finance the acquisition of a double (can't remember which one) and I started regretting it almost immediately.

While I owned it, I shot it quite a but. It was a great gun for early season grouse when the woods was thick and shots had to be quick. It was also fun for clays and skeet, but as Rich mentioned in a previous post, it was loud when it cycled and would kick hulls across a parking lot. I never had a problem with it cycling or any other mechanical problems. All I can say is the gun was fun to shoot and carried easily afield.

I was there when he bought it in fact I lent him the $600 so I know it's over 20 years old and probably closer to 30 as I was still shooting the winter skeet league. I haven't done that in close to 30 years. It's a nice gun.....for an autoloader

Rich, what were the interest terms on that $600 loan?

BTW, thanks Jay for the heads up on that skeet barrel for an 1148. I texted the info to my buddy while we were both turkey hunting Thursday, he called the guy immeadiately and bought it. He was real excited about it.
I had mentioned in an earlier post of this thread that it might be hard to find the exact configuration wanted in the 1100LW 28 ga so maybe he should buy it. As an example, I mentioned a friend who has been looking for an open choked 28ga 1148 barrel for years. Jay pm'ed me with the where abouts of an 1187 skeet barrel with a vent rib. I think you should ask for a seller's commission on it.
just another example of the benefits of belonging to the PGCA.

Harold I can use it anytime I want and if he ever sells it I have first right of refusal at the original purchase price.
