This gun was built for me by Doug Scott of St Louis in the mid 80's. Doug was a highly regarded builder and the waiting period for one of his guns was over a year. The workmanship is very remarkable. It is .54 Cal. built in the style of an English sporting rifle, quite similar to a half stock Hawkin but with a shotgun type butt and cheek piece of English Walnut and a buffalo horn forend cap. All the iron parts except the barrel were fire blued instead of browned. I used the rifle strictly for target competion for about a year and then got into trap shooting. The gun has been cased in my closet for more than 20 years. The gun has an adjustable rear sight and is very accurate out to 200 yards. The gun cost me $2500 when I bought it, I paid $600 for the stock blank alone. L&R lock and set trigger. It came with a fitted spare lock and sideplate. I figure the gun is worth at least what I paid for it. I would be interested in selling for $2500 or as a partial trade in a high quality single barrel trap gun. I shoot trap left handed so would want a lefty friendly trap gun. If anyone is interested you can email me for additional pictures or to ask questions, just drop the x's. Thanks, Rich Strickland, gyrine
