Default SC engraving

Of the bottom metal engraving on an SC which is the more common . The plates with the pigeon or the plates with just scroll ?

After looking in the two volume set I tend to agree with you . Think it said the majority after 1917 would have the pigeon .

I was under the impression that only the very earliest SC's (first year or two) had the scroll engraving but then the pigeon became the symbol of the SC Trap guns to the end of production.

If I am mistaken I hope someone will correct me.

Read the blurb about SC grade in the book and you draw your own conclusion . What I read leads me to believe the majority after 1917 had the bird but there were maybe a few with the scroll .

The early SC's had scroll and the real early SC's had a separate firing pin which was accessed by taking out a screw on the right side of the receiver. The pigeon was standard on SC's after 1918 but anything is possible if a customer wanted it.
