Mike,

Congats on your new trap gun. These late guns are my favorites and the Remington SBT guns had some really LONG chokes and shoot very well. Please show us more and let us know what part of the country it came from. Many of the late Remington Trap guns went west and I am always interested to learn their history.

Patrick.

It appears to be in very nice original condition but the recoil pad has been replaced with a Pachmayr. If someone knows what recoil pad shoule be on a 1935/1936 SBT I may have it changed.

The case color is great and it locks up "like a bank vault". There is no mid rib bead but I don't think that will bother my shooting.

Looking forward to shooting it Sunday.

Please excuse my poor photography.

Mike, very nice late model SBT... As to the question about recoil pad mine is in the 217,xxx range, it has a Hawkins pad...

Welcome to the SBT club Mike. Could you show a pic of the entire butt stock? Trap3 has a nice photo display in his post.

Default More SBT Photos

Mike Franzen asked for more photos of my SBT so here they are. I am happy and proud to be its current caretaker.

Chuck Bishop's research letter says it was ordered as an employee and display gun for Remington. That could explain the terrific wood. The gun was completed on June 17, 1935 and shipped to Tom Daves at Remington on April 10, 1936. Except for the replacement recoil pad and the initials inscribed on the stock plate, it appears to be in original, unrestored condition. Does anyone know who CWT may be?

The best thing is it fits me perfectly and is great to shoot. I have been consistently breaking 22 or 23 clays since I picked it up but I feel a 25 coming.

Shooting it tonight the forend feels a little lose when the gun is open. Is that something to think about having adjusted? Any suggestions about who to send it to if it needs adjustment?

I would definitely get a heart shaped Hawkins pad,
Most likely that was on it originally.

Mike thanks for posting those pics. What a beautiful gun. The grain on the butt stock is about as good as I've seen. It doesn't appear to me that the stock has been altered in any way. So often we see these guns "improved" by a trap shooter. You're a lucky man. Somebody who knows more than me will come along and address the loose for end issue. My instinct tells me it needs to be looked at.
