    Bill, if I had that gun display, in that room, I'd pour a couple fingers of Crown and sit back and look at them.

    Bob, I can not attest to the shootability of the L grade. I just recently got it back. When I recieved it it had about a 12" length of pull with the original collapsed recoil pad. I did save them. I just reciently got it back from being restocked with a forarm refinish at the same time. I will get back to you on that when Winter league starts.


    Trapboy1957, I will do that at a later date. I am having a huge problem with finding the right furniture for this room. This room has been a 2 to 3 year project.

    Eightbore, The serial no on the Fox is 400116. I think it it one of 29 L grades known to exist. I did aquire it from a gentleman that owned 2 of them. He was a friend of Frank Conley and aquired alot of his collection. I might add that I wish I had some of your knowledge of guns. Regards, Bill

    Dixie,

    They make entry doors that are the same as a gun safe with locking bolts and all. They are called Vault doors. Make the room secure and no worries about displaying guns as such.

    Old One Eye, What most of these guys don't know is. There was a trapshooter that asked a question on trapshooter.com about history of trap guns in 2006 The question was answered by Old One Eye with the recomendation that the book " The American Single Barrel Trap Gun " Should be aquired by someone asking this question. Well I purchased the book, read it, and it lead to this.
    Buddy you have lead me down a long road and I owe you a debt I could never repay. Thank You, Bill Grill
