When the 1 of 1,000 guns were made, the #1 set was made available to the Remington Chairman, #2 went to Alec Stott (sp?) and #3 to my Dad. I understand that Stott was an accomplished skeet shot, in addition to being the Controller of AT&T. When Alec went through the exhibit, there was another #2 set being displayed. He was quite upset, and requested (demanded?) that the second #2 set be destroyed

The #1 1 of 1000 set was in the Remington Archives collection (not the museum or R&D collection) when I was at the factory in 1998. They were still in the green plastic cases. I don't know what has happened to them since.

A 3200 has one of the best triggers that you will ever pull!

Yup. Pulled that great trigger on my old 3200 Skeet Gun fifty times today.

Awesome Dave! I usually shoot sporting clays with a K-80 but I still prefer my 3200 Comp Skeet 28" for skeet......it's just a skeet machine!

And the best barrel selector/safety system ever devised

Actually I never cared much for the flipper barrel selector on a 3200 . Anytime I had one that the lever was still there I’d set it on the under barrel and then remove the lever .

My safety levers were always removed on competition 3200s.

I shot my 3200 in Springer Trials, so barrel selection was important
I will be shooting that gun tomorrow at clays, so again, barrel selection comes into play

The SK-27 went to Baseball great Catfish Hunter and finally to me.

If anyone stumbles across T-27, I'd like to put the pair back together.

Thanks, Will
