Amazingly the gun isnít that bad weight wise . Where we quail shoot at Rasawek weíre typically only out 2-3 hours so itís not to strenuous .

No it wasn't. According to the presentation Charlie Price did on gauges for the PGCA 7th Annual Meeting & Conference in Cleveland, 21 July 2001, 10-gauge production peaked in the 1881 to 1885 time frame at 44% of production while 12-gauge was 54% in that period. After that 10-gauge production dropped off steeply and after 1900 it was 1% or less.

Got around to trying the 1 1/8 Green Dot loads both with REM and BPI wads . Shot a round with each using a 28Ē EH and a 26Ē Grade 1 top lever . Shot a pair of 23ís at skeet missing the same two birds both times . Needless to say no fault of the guns no fault of the loads just the nut on the stock

What do you attribute as the cause of the sharp decline? Was it the advent of smokeless powder making smaller bores more capable?

Trap association rules and pigeon shooting rules, both of which I am a bit rusty on. Anyone remember the details? Reverend Drew?
