thanks opening day. after looking at several other great threads in this forum i wound up on the one with pix of wood... i'm going to have to revamp my assessment on my gun. it's maybe average looking compared to what i have seen as the norm pictured there. when i bought it, it had honest marks from being enjoyed by the previous owner (presumably hunted with). top lever is far to right, but gun has been more than moderately used. my wood is plain with little dark streakings. stock finish is intact. i'll work on getting thru attaching pix as i can. as for my stable of shooters she is is still my best one, and i still love her dearly. it just doesn't come close to the rest of the bevy of beauties i saw on that particular thread. thanks matt k

I disagree, it’s the best one b/c you’re enjoying it and you’ve made it yours.

Welcome to the forum, Matt.

Now, about that 16ga...keep your eyes peeled because one will show up for you at some point, but be ready. They’re the best of the bunch if you ask me.

I grew up shooting a circa 1900 20 ga on a 28 frame - with a 2 inch stock extension, it fit well and is still the fastest shotgun ever for me.

My wife gave me a Repro 12 for Christmas and the comb was too high, so I took it to a Mississippi gun shop and had it bent to suit. They used hot oil and a jig. Then they refinished the area finish to match the rest of stock. This fixed the problem for good. And it fits me like a 12 ga glove.

I later bought a new Repro 20 and it fit from the get go: still does. ?

PS I am taking it to Hidden Lakes preserve tomorrow to shoot birds with some buddies.

Matt, you have a fairly rare Repro as it's a 12 ga with double triggers, a BTFA and a long length of pull, not a real common combination. I would prefer your stock over some of the other repros as quite a few of the guns with lots of figure didn't have the proper grain going threw the wrist and would break at that point. You've got yourself a keeper!
