Very nice Mr. Day! Here is my 10/12 32"/30" frame 3 2 barrel set with a "half pistol grip"

It was originally a 10 gauge only sent to Nebraska in 1888 I believe then about 10 years later the 12 gauge set was added with specifications that gun weight the same 9lbs with both barrels. The original butt pad has been replaced(work was done by Brian Dudley) and Brad rebrowned the 12 gauge barrels about 2 years ago. I haven't had the 10s redone as they were in better shape then the 12s. I always find 2 barrel sets to be either interesting or confusing. I have encountered several that I see very little reason for the 2nd set- same gauge, same choke, and little difference in length. While others make total sense- different gauge, 26" barrels and 32" barrels. A set I would love to track back down is one I saw in Houston once with 26 inch 12s and 34 in 10s.

Two barrel sets don't make much sense to me and I have a couple. The Hollywood gun is a 16 with 28 inch barrels one set SKT/SKT the other M/F. I have a 28 with 26 inch IC/M and a second set from Purdey that's 28 inches M/F.
The Hollywood gun has never had the M/F barrels on it in the 15 years I have owned it. I'd rather have a second gun.
