John,

The forend on your gun certainly APPEARS to be on the wider side of what is considered typical for a Parker SBT forend.

I have 5 forends from 12g. SBT guns here and they all measure about 2" wide, give or take a 1/16".

I wonder how the width of John's compares to the width of an original 12 ga. Skeet BTF??... or even a 20.

Dean, I agree. I don't know what I was thinking, ie double vs. single. Brian, this BTF looks like 2 4/8 width +- 1/16. Also including another pic showing fit.

Went out and gave the old girl a try. She has a release trigger and I wasn't sure how I'd like it. Fixed the trap to throw straight aways from Post 3 and shot a box of shells randomly from the 5 posts. After that I felt comfortable enough to try a real round of trap . First round I shot an 18 and realized I was releasing the trigger before I got to the target. In the second round I slowed my release down and shot a 24. Starting to like it.

Roughly. It also appears from the Serialization book that it is the next to the last SB made. Maybe.
