    As promised, it's finally back together and ready for business on both ends! The wait was nerve shattering doing without my toy but I love the jobs done by Howard Simon (Engraving)and Phil Sims (Stock&extra comb)! Thank you both!! I now have a 3 barrel set for my gun and ready for anything that flies! Easier to locate in the gun racks and I love this gun too! Thanks for looking guys!

    Beautiful, Hap..well worth the wait. Is that a set of MX-2L barrels with the extended choke tubes?

    Hap,

    That's really a sharp looking gun! Good choice to engrave as the basic receiver is plain. Hope you shoot it as good as it looks,

    Thanks guys!! Vern, the barrels with choke tubes are MT-6 that I had fitted, 29-1/2 inches. I have 7 Briley tubes ranging from cyl bore to full. This set was re-worked by Jim Eyster and they shoot great and can't wait to resume chasing doubles and a few skeets with it. Setterman, the MX-3 O/U barrels are 31-1/2 inch fixed full on top @ 30 and mod on bottom @ 20. The top single is a 34 inch barrel with Briley tubes that I shoot singles and caps with.

    HAP

    With a gun like that you just turn around, show it to the scorer and she gives you all X's. Congratulations Hap.
