    Hello:
    what is the highest grade GUN offered by the following brand guns?

    REMINGTON,WINCHESTER, BROWNING, KREIGHOFF, PERAZZI, PARKER, CHARLES DALY, KOLAR, AND ANY OTHERS YOU CAN THINK OF. i know that remington would make you a special order gun if you had the money, but what is considered the highest grade normally offered by these gun manufacturers?

    There are a lot of variables here, if you want the basic Hi-grade w/o custom options.

    Winchester Model 12 Super Pigeon

    Remington F Grade

    Kreighoff Crown Grade

    Caesar Guerini Maxuum Trap- Apex Sporting Clays

    Perazzi SCO

    Kolar determined by buyer

    Beretta 687 EELL Trap Determined by buyer

    Browning Midaas Grade-Golden Clays-Pigeon grade-

    I know some are incorrect and in-complete

    No mention of Ljutic. "Big Al, the shooter's pal" made some very handsome guns.

    i think kreighoff is super crown grade. a friend of mine had one, absolutely beautiful. the checkering was beautiful, it hurt your hands when you held the gun.

    Berettas high grade guns are the SO series. I've never seen one, so I don't know which is which in the various SO guns.

    Sarge, Army Drill Instructors wear Campaign hats. However Army personnel do not require hats to have class! The job they do gives it to them. Jake,1SG USA Ret.

    Sarge: You forgot the National Park Service. Premium beaver felt made by Stetson. As soft as a baby bottom. We could change to a summer hat(straw)only when it was hot enough for salt rings to form under your arms.

    samiam03....

    My father retired from the NPS. I remember his uniforms well.


    Anyway, the most beautiful Ljutics I have ever seen are owned and shot by a friend of mine- the infamous "Bobby R". Highly engraved with incredible gold inlays and exhibition grade wood. I don't know how you could get much higher than his. His Kguns and Pguns aren't too shabby either.

    Well with Winchester it depends on the model.
    The Model 12 Pre 64 could be Deluxe, Skeet, Trap, or Pidgeon.

    The Winchester 21 would be Grand American.

    Yup, Sarge, as you have been told, Army drill sergeants wore the campaign hat in the Viet Nam era. I don't know how long they wore it, but it was standard equipment 1967 to 1969 when I was stateside. The Model 12 pictured does not bear any resemblance to any factory custom shop gun I have seen. The fit of the vent rib to receiver extension is very poor and the engraving does not extend to areas that would normally be covered by an experienced engraver.
