It's Shotgun Sports Magazine, thanks for catching that. I corrected my previous response.

Thank you for clarifying! I would have been on a wild goose chase...

Default Page 1 of the First one sheet trifold

This is posted because I see one page but not the 2nd page, for the first offering (that was the 20 gauge with 26" or 28" barrels).

So, here is the picture of Tom Skeuse with a brief story about the decision to make the reproduction.

I noticed that the brochure states: "Each gun comes with a fitted leather trunk case and snap caps." No mention of an oil bottle being included.

Later,
Johnny

Skeuse, or Guns Unlimited, sent accessories except for the oil bottle a short time after my purchase of the gun. I purchased my oil bottle from the Cape Outfitters table at the PGCA meeting at Nashville. It was the last one they had.

Default 1987 Price List

This is a handout from the Freer Gun Shop. A single xerox sheet. Made up by cutting and pasting from other things, is my best guess.

1987 Prices.

Case and snap caps. No mention of oil bottle. Unless, they are part of the "other options and accessories priced on application." Now I wonder what they had in mind with that phrase.

Notes in upper right hand corner were made by my Dad for later reference. He did not share my interest in the Parker Bros. side by side, but he did humor me and collected bits like this one for me.
