    Just what is an "ivory" hydro coil stock? I do know what a hydro coil stock is but have never heard of one made of ivory? Bill

    I remember seeing those white stocks in a catalog when I was a young whippersnapper and asking myself...........What the heck is a trapgun?

    If I only would have known.....lol

    I was always under the impression that the white or ivory stocks were made for ladies guns. Also I think that for every white stock, 2 brown stocks were made. Maybe Stu Wright could comment on this. Larry Evans

    In the past 4 years I have bought and sold 6 Ivory sets from new in the box to well used and with some cracks. I got $750 for one new set and the least for a well used set was $250. The gun in the pic is not for sale. I do know of one N.I.B. skeet gun with the Ivory option for sale he wants $4500. Jeff

    I have seen at least 30 of the 50 produced so either I am a very lucky guy or they made a few more then 50 of them. Jeff

    Yes superXJeff you could have seen that many but maybe none were factory installed. The option started in 1963 and continued to be used through the clean up of the pre 64 recievers. The factory would install them on any gun and if you have the factory invoice with one being installed collectors recognize them as Factory. Ed Sowers was the inventor and manufacturer in California. He sold sets directly to the public. Maybe hundreds in Ivory. Jeff
