Default 16 Ga Lifter revisited

I was so impressed with the 16 gauge 0-frame Lifter that Jeff Kuss displayed for us I thought it would be acceptable to display mine - a 16 Gauge $140 Grade (Grade 3) Lifter No. 18719 made with 27-inch Parker-made Laminated-3 barrels on the lightened 0-frame, shipped in August of 1880..... and I didn't want to mess up Jeff's thread so I started this one.

The gun was returned in October of 1880 to "put on a rubber butt" and this was done and engraved and checkered to resemble a skeleton steel butt plate - even the screw heads were checkered over to match the checkering done on the hard rubber butt plate.

I cast the winning bid in the October 2015 Julia auction.

"I'm a Setter man.
Not because I think they're better than the other breeds,
but because I'm a romantic - stuck on tradition - and to me,
a Setter just "belongs" in the grouse picture."

George King, "That's Ruff", 2010 - a timeless classic.
