    Wow! Met Bill Cole yesterday at the Pacific Grand. I've seen pictures of Cole's before but never saw one up close. Truly beauty in simplicity. He said his pull triggers have 2 moving parts and his release, only 3. Anybody every shot one?

    A few years ago I purchased a used, new receiver style Bill Cole SBT with two barrels & both triggers. It's the only gun I've ever owned that I can totally take apart, clean & reasemble in a matter of minutes. I count seven total moving parts and the gun is built to last forever. It has great balance & will crush targets. Don E. Magruder, St. Louis, MO

    I have one of the new style, with nickel receiver, that I got for a back up but do not shoot it.

    Has Graco adjustable butt and can adjust the LOP also, two different pads, soft adjustable comb, 2 ribs,( has 80/20 on it now) 4 choke tubes by Briley and original Cole Americase. Has nice wood, double palm swell and seems slight cast for a right hand shooter. I would have to pull the build sheet for complete description. Shot very few rounds in the past 5+ years. Has pull trigger and adjustable LOP is at 14.5 inches now.

    If interested just drop me an email...Some trades might be accepted as long as trap or hunting style shotguns or maybe a home defense pistol. No short skeet guns wanted.

    I shoot a 34" Perazzi TMS now.

    I might post pictures at a later date. Too late tonight. Ray.......

    I was at the Grand Pacific shooting a cole. I beleive it and the Ljutic are probably two of the best trap guns you could own as far as trouble free. I had bill make a small change on mine and he wouldn't take any pay for it you can't beat that. Bill is a nice guy with a super trap gun. I love how smooth and easy they open and close. Iam sure if you got one you would like it. Wayne

    When my skill level warrants the purchase of a gun of those prices...it'll probably be a Cole or a Ljutic. Love to support the Pacific Northwest.

    Could someone please post a link to the Cole shotgun website?

    The only thing I find is a custom Beretta site.

    Thanks
