    Ray Stafford has one. We used to hunt grasshoppers in the Spring with it at the old Mile High Gun Club many years ago. Jimmy Borum

    Simmons had a table at the last Tulsa gun show. I asked them about placing ribs on Remington 572s and Winchester model 61 smooth bores. Back when this was popular they had different blueing tanks for each manufacture. Not sure if it's a factory option although they still do it. Price for the job is about $350.00.

    I have four 572 smooth bores in different variations with three of them unfired in the box. And still looking for a ventilated rib model.

    Two of the early ones i have are roll stamped on the left side of the receiver [Auto trap shoot] and stamped USAF. The military must of used these guns for training. Both these guns are unfired in the box.
