Default Early lifter

Nothing special but a good, honest early lifter. 12 gauge on 1 frame. Handles well . . . looks like an early Grade 2 equivalent. 3,000 sn range. First Parker of the year

Sandringham's Gun Room contained a case with 17 hammered Purdey's. I took that as a challenge to have 18 hammered Parker's. How's your count coming along Mills?

Letter came today. Chokes were RH 130 and LH 135 pellets of no 8 shot in 18 x 24 pattern at 45 yards. I believe that is relatively open so would make sense for an upland gun. Also looks like it was returned in 1913 for minor repairs from Louisiana along the Mississippi river north of Natchez. I was just reading about woodcock hunting in Louisiana and it made me wonder if it was a woodcock gun back in the day

Mills - that's not open at all....

18 inches by 24 inches at 45 yards is a pretty small target to put 130 pellets into. Sounds closer to IM or Full to me.

I would use a good bore mic and check for constriction in thousandths.

Maybe so. I have a hard time with those kind of choke descriptions

I have some lifters that have 170 and 190 pellets described in the research letters with the same target/distance that I assumed are full and very full choke. I have another lifter that is 120 pellets that seems to me like a cylinder choke.

Dean knows more about this than I do and measuring is the best way to know for sure(I personally don't have those tools). And of course you could shoot and pattern it. Based on my lifters and research letters, yours seems closer to improved cylinder.

Looks like you'll have to do some shooting and let us know
