Already shot it half dozen times . The hammer screw doesn’t bother me as much as the lever retainer , sometimes the lever doesn’t want to stay to the right when open . Tried my light 12 #8 handloads and the hammers on each side are okay under recoil . Then tried my 0 buck handloads on paper at 25 and 45 yards .

45 yards with the right barrel wasn’t worth posting . I do not understand why sometimes the pics turn side ways ?

dean you are right i believe the same fellow worked on these two guns....the old 8 gauge is still shooting and staying together.....i like those patterns i would take a shot at a deer at 45 yards with them....i see him on the ground after that last shot....charlie

Say all you want about Charlie's 8 gauge, but Charlie single handedly put it in shooting condition.

Mills, are you saying you never shot it while it was under your custodianship?

I took it to a respected gunsmith who declared it beyond repair. Charlie had expressed interest in it, so I pm'ed him and sold it to him that night. Not two weeks later, he had it repaired enough to shoot it. Not a small feat

I've been throwing my Grade 2 up a few times and it felt abnormally good , so I just measured the drop . The comb is 1 3/4" and the heel is 2" . Correct me if I'm wrong but that's not normal for a field gun made in 1884 unless it was special ordered . If it were on a 2 or 3 frame I might speculate pigeon gun , but this things on a 1 frame .
