    Just picked up my new toy today. fits great and grinds targets. came with 4 briley tubes. early one #142 but since they dont break often the age shouldnt be a problem. from the history i got with the gun its to my understanding it was owned by the hall of famer, Punkin Flock, at one time. thought that was pretty cool.

    You might consider naming your new toy Punkin. Pretty cool find there.

    Welcome to the Ljutic clan of shooters which I am proud to say I am one. Fit the gun and you will never look back, except perhaps to pick-up a second Ljutic like I did. With the fast lock times, superb handling and recoil-sucking balanced weight, you're holding probably the finest SBT shotgun ever made, and one made in the good old USA by excellent machinists and design engineers...

    Again, congratulations...

    What a find James. I'd never sell it even if I couldn't shoot it. Punkin and Carl were very special people and left a legacy worth honoring to the sport of trapshooting! Bet Punkin's looking down wishing you the best like the rest of us...

    GOOD LUCK

    Last winter at a gun show i was looking through a box of assorted ammo and I came across two Federal champ 11 shells that were marked in gold "Punkin Flock honor shoot". Unfortunately both shells were reloads so the dealer gave them both to me for free.

    JC,

    You might consider calling Ms. "Nadine" Ljutic at Ljutic's main office.

    Nadine can provide the history behind the gun as to the year it was made and who it was originally made for.

    Since it is a 3 digit SN, I suspect it was built in the late 60s.

    Is the fore end locked in place by turning a fore end screw or is it a push button.

    I believe Ljutic went to the push button for locking the fore end around SN 200.

    BE
