    You will hear a lot of both on this site. I owned one and shot it very well. Mine was a 34/32 combo with upgrade wood and M/C stock. The reason that I got rid of mine was that I bought a BPS trap and shoot it a lot better. The only thing that I would suggest is to buy a later model one that has all the factory upgrades done to it. The other thing, is invest in a good set of aftermarket choke tubes. Even though Briley makes the factory ones, They aren't uip to par with their own extended tubes. If I was in the market for another combo gun I would look hard at the 85TSS combo again. The other would be a new Browning Unsingle combo.

    I will not say anything about this gun, after the last thread concerning SKB.

    That is correct ... if you get one get a later model one. Most that I have heard that had problems with them were from a few years ago when they first came out with the 85TSS model, 2001 or 2002 if I remember correctly.

    I have not heard anything bad about there Briley tubes though but I did notice on there 2007 brochures they have both Carlson and Briley on the back page where they list all of there choke tubes.

    If things go good this spring I myself will most likely be getting (if I can get the right price) a 34"/30" combo gun with the adjustable monte carlo stock. All I will have to do with that set up is change the butt pad and get a couple extra tubes and it will be an all around gun capable of trap, wobbly trap, bunker trap, skeet and almost any other shooting sport I care to shoot.

    The only drawback of an SKB is they dont offer a hardcase but wharwick can solve that problem easily.

    I would suggest you shoot one 1st, before you buy one. If you can find someone to fix the trigger they would be alright.
