I find my NID .410-bore one of the hardest guns to shoot that I own. The heavy breech end of those tiny .410-bore barrels puts much of its 6 pounds 1.7 ounces weight between my hands.





Muzzle light and very whippy. My 28-gauge NIDs, on the same frame as the .410-bores, weigh 5 pounds 11.5 and 11.7 ounces and are much better handling.

For me, my best handling .410-bore double is my RBL-410 with its trim 28-inch barrels and tiny receiver giving much better balance to its 5 pound 0.7 ounces.

Skeeter, they almost always balance well, and it will never break if taken care of.

Much as I like NID's, that Skeeter just has "it" !

I chose the SKEET-ER.
Sucker for killer wood. Tons of condition. Enough degradation that I'm satisfied of it's originality.

You'll never be disappointed Bobby.
