    A friend of mine has all kinds of single barrel trap guns; he's owned just about everything at one time. We got to talking; if you could buy any single barrel trap gun (let's assume standard grade) cost no object, what would be your dream gun??? Let's also assume the gun comes with standard fitted wood??

    I've often wondered what my choice would be...but I'd narrow it down between a Bill Cole SBT or a Ljutic Stainless Monogun.

    It would be a hard choice between driving to Ohio or Wisconsin, but I would probably drive to Ohio!

    When I bought my Browning Unsingle Combo, it was what I wanted. The one I borrowed and shot fit me like mo other gun I have had until the Perazzi twins came along.

    The Combo I bought fit and shot precisely the same as the one I test drove.

    The utter confidence you get when shooting a gun that fits cannot be discounted.

    As a former Browning factory gunsmith, confidence in the gun makes a difference.

    I also performed warranty service and repair for Ithaca when they imported the Perazzi. I have 150% confidence in these too. If they break, I can fix them! LOL

    The CAT IV is a little easier to work on.

    I'd still stick with an 1100 or 1187. After all, they're a single barrel. If oney was no object I'd embellish them a bit, though.

    If you want to learn to shoot good scores, a BT99 and $15,000 worth of ammo and targets would be your best buy.

    Mike...(Perrazi Big Bore) Oddly, I find my 10.4 lb. Cole to feel very light..much lighter than its mass compared to other guns in of a similiar weight. I feel gun is so good, it is taking me a while to absolutely believe and trust it..I keep looking at the barrel and then realize the gun magically got to the target; if I just let the gun "run" I get 'em unlike any other gun I've shot. This, after a month's ownership. Amazing piece of equipment as I am sure many other guns are...if they work with the shooter.

    Sousa Grade Ithaca. Maybe not the best ever made but very few others would have one.

    Pheasantmaster-
    The metal used and the process used for boring the barrel is beyond the capability of any of the other manufactures. The no heat process does not stress the metal and the ultimate in barrel concentricity.

    From what I understand the cost of a raw tube just the barrel blank that Dennis uses is close to $1000.

    Ask any one who has one of DeVault's barrels on either a Mach One or an Infinity how the barrels pattern. I have seen almost every gun manufactured by the other makers with barrels modified by wilkerson I have never seen one of Dennis' barrels modified by anyone.

    I'm still a little bit from the old school. I would buy a brand new, in the box, OLD STYLE, Perazzi DB-81 combo set. You know, the one that came with 2 forends and 2 triggers. Preferably one in the 55XXX to 58XXX serial number range. 34" single with a 32" O/U. Fixed chokes in all barrels. Then the barrels would go to Tom Wilkinson. The single back bored to about .742", and choked to .707". The O/U barrels to retain the stock bore, but, the bottom barrel choked to .020" and the top barrel choked to .032". Then, drop in a Precision double release trigger set, Wenig stock with adjustable comb. Yeah, that would be just the ticket! Oh, wait, I already have that one, but, it's used, and a trapshooter always needs a back-up gun just in case, right?....Dan Thome (Trap2)

    Ok I'll say it again. Infinity Not only does it have the best barrels but it is a truly custom built gun. Most of the rest are production guns. A DB81 although a good gun it is not a SBT.

    Dennis deliveres a package at a price far less than many of the others and includes a truly custom built stock with no extra charge.

    To my knowledge Dennis is the only gun manufactuer who controles all phases of the stock production most of the others farm out their stock work.
