I'm going to go out on a limb and say this fella subscribes to a very loose definition of a Steel Shot Special. How about that ventilated rib, too? Buyer beware.

The installation of those sling swivels easily cuts the value of that gun in half, for most buyers.

So that sounds similar to what happens when one grinds metal out their 28ga. Repro's luscious M/F chokes. :glug: :duck:

Luscious is one word that never crossed my mind years ago when I thought about my Repro's 28 ga unrealistic M&F chokes... but after I had Briley open them up I can see now where luscious would describe them well :whistle:

I'm surprised at you, Greg. You didn't go bonkers with the sling swivels.

They never troubled me. Lots of plantation hunters required them.

I don't know why you'd be surprised, Edgar. Sling swivels can be a very practical and useful item in many of the duck hunting situations I've done. Many times for many seasons we'd boat up or down Wisconsin's Wolf River to get to some of the potholes we'd hunt, tie the boat up to the river bank, hike through woods in the dark using flashlights carrying a bag of decoys, guns, etc. along with marsh skis that we'd use once getting to the boggy marshes and potholes where we'd set up. I used a slip-on sling for my double guns, but those slings or sling swivels were almost a necessity in those situations.

I was surprised that you didnít criticize their installation, because youíre frequently critical of alterations, ďdreamersĒ if I recall you called those who alter chokes. As to the practicality of sling swivels, I totally agree with you. Shocked arenít you.
Very rarely do I give a rats ass about alterations to a gun I own. Iím not a flipper, overly concerned about exit value. Thatís not to say I wonít sell a gun but I know what I like and usually know if something has been fussed with in a gun Iím considering. Between my dad and I, I dare say weíve had over 100 Parkers but that goes back to 1935, when he sold his Model A (Ford) in order to buy a DHE 20 from the head nurse at the Troy NY hospital where he work while in college. He had a dozen before he even met my mother.
