Drew, do you have any information on the guns used by the winners at the International Flyer Championship held at Kansas City from 1917 to 1941? I can guess that Mark Arie may have used a Marlin Pump in 1930, and Spencer Olin probably a Model 21 in 1933.

No, I'm sorry I don't have much Dave.

This is Randy's image at Elliott's Shooting Park in 1931. Arie, Jenny, and Frank Hughes (at the 1924 Olympics) all used Smith guns.



3-2-35 Alton Evening Telegraph
KANSAS CITY, March 2
The old shotgun with which Mark Arie has won thousands of dollars in trapshooting still is a moneymaker. The Champaign, Ill., veteran tied with two others for first place in the Flyer cup race at the Interstate Trapshoot Tournament yesterday and collected $96.60.
Arie was beaten in the shoot off by H. L. Cheek, Clinton, Ind.

His Marlin Model 28 hammerless trap gun, D grade which he received in 1914 and which he used in the 1920 Olympic Games?
