    ...at least that's what my 16 year old son calls it. Actually it is the result of a long winter project and my old 1100 I bought new in 1980. The stock is a new model Jack West. The barrel is a 1" high Moneymaker I bought from a very nice older gent right here on TS.com. The action was nickled by Metalife. The trigger is a stainless Timney. The airbrushed paint job is by a very talented friend of mine in Colfax, Washington named Eric Heise of Eric's Auto Body.
    You guys had such a field day with the yellow 1100, I thought I'd let you take a look at another custom painted 1100, my kid's new trap gun.
    Now all I need is for someone kind enough to post a couple pictures for me. thanks, Eric

    Thanks for putting up the pictures skeet man. Oh, by the way, there are no decals on the stock. It is all paint.

    Should be easy to locate in the gun rack. I think it's pretty cool.

    If you'd like to talk to Eric Heise about painting a stock for you, his number is 509-397-1117.

    thanks, Eric W.

    That's neat!

    Now all you need is a little nose art on the forearm. The rest of it reminds me of a WWII fighter plane.

    Ziggy, He's a good friend of mine and told me he probably didn't charge me enough...give him a call. He does paintjobs from mild to wild. You should see some of the awesome golf carts he has done. Eric W.

    Switchblade-327 - I like your gun and was considering saying that you should remember that you will have to look at this all the time. But I scrolled back up and now agree with you. Perhaps you do need a cool paint job.
