This is a 30-inch Beretta Special Trap barrel backbored and tubed by the late Stan Baker. Bore is 742 and there are four choke tubes. Constrictions are .012, .027, .032 and .042. This barrel is probably 20 years old and I have not used it in some time.

Barrel is straight and bore is very clean. Bluing is good except for rub marks alongside forend which are not visible when the barrel is mounted. Price is $425 shipped to CONUS. Pictures available upon request. Barrel is in central Iowa.

Wally Riebesell informs me that a Baker Big Bore is a 10-guage barrel with a custom rib that requires the forend to be relieved to permit mounting. This barrel is a modified Beretta Special trap 30-inch barrel.

Baker and Briley were credited with the first screw-in choke tubes, although I think they both got that idea from the fiberglass barrelled 59 winchester which had screw-in tubes that were the same diameter at the barrel and screwed to internal threads in the barrel just like modern choke tubes.

I did order an extra tube from Baker since I owned the barrel. It has a serial number but is not stamped with his name.

I'm lowering the price to $325 shipped.
