Small world...I see you purchased Donovan Kirkpatrick's unfired SCC. Congrats! I don't believe Donovan ever posted pics here on the forum of his gun, how about you do in the "Let's see some wood" thread"?

I know the skeet chokes have been discussed before, where they are listed SK-1 & SK-2. Although everyone indicates they are only marked skeet & both are the same. I just purchased an unfired SCC that belonged to Donovan Kirkpatrick & the two skeet chokes are different. The first is marked Winchester 12-S (.733). The 2nd is not marked Winchester 12-S. It's marked S with an electric pen (729). I'd like to hear back from Kirkpatrick if the electric pen marked S choke is original to the gun. If it is, then it is a SK-2 since it's .004 tighter than the Winchester 12-S choke.

For info, the 6 chokes from my SCC 12-1526 are marked:
12-S, 12-S, 12-IC, 12-M, 12-F, and 12-XF.
All have the Winchester label under the choke identifier letters.
Interesting in that I don't recall anyone mentioning having an XF in the set.

All of mine are marked Winchester, except for the one marked S with an electric pen. Also, no XF, but have IM.

Greg, I had read a couple of your posts on the versatility of the SCCs before I saw the one Josh had at the Southern SxS. That was the reason it caught my attention...

In upland hunting in thick cover in the Southern Appalachians, I have always favored 26" barrels...Josh found a set of original factory new 26" Q1 and Q2 barrels, which I purchased and plan to have fitted to the SCC making it an even more versatile 2-barrel set. I hope this will also add to the value of the gun.... Thanks for your posts that brought the SCCs to my attention.

Thank you for that Phil. We band of SCC owners belong to a pretty exclusive club! It appears your XF tube was substituted for the customarily found IM tube in the SCC set. I also have an Winchester XF Winchoke choke tube which I later purchased along with a Browning-stamped CYL choke tube.

My choke tubes mike out with the following constrictions, I had posted these previously, but for the benefit of new owners here they are once again:
* CYL = .000
* Skeet = .003
* IC = .009
* M = .016
* IM = .019
* F = .029
* XF = .039

David, you can see from the attached Winchoke pamphlet a Skeet ll choke tube isn't listed. Skeet ll choke is generally thought of being a little tighter than IC at ~.012. Given that yours aren't stamped with the Winchester logo I would suspect it is an aftermarket tube, that's not to mean it isn't useful. Maybe Donovan can shed some light on it. ??

Donovan responded to me & said he's had the SCC for 12 years & did not add the additional Skeet choke. He didn't indicate if he was the original owner. You're correct that the additional Skeet choke is not a Winchester choke, but another manufacture. It doesn't have the larger OD lip @ the end of the choke like Winchester chokes do. It's the same OD from top to bottom & the S marking is in electric pen.
