This gun is not original as the 30" barrel has been reblued (nice job)and the stock is not original. The gun has .735/736 bores and is choked .016 and .041. According to the serial number it is a 1919 gun.

Would like to have it either opened up or thinwalls installed. Would be leaning toward Briley for that as I get a discount but Wright's might be an option. Want automatic safety disconnected and may have case colors redone as they are all gone.

Any recommendations? Posting a few pics below.

Very pretty gun Claybrdr. Your Briley's will be hidden as opposed to an extended tube. I think that would be a major consideration. Good luck.Bob

Nice Sterlingworth, especially the wood. Depending on the barrel weight you may not be able to have choke tubes installed. I had a Ithaca flues restored by a fellow named Gunther Frommer ( not sure about spelling), did a good job. I believe he had someone else do the case colors. A lot cheaper than Turnbull.

I removed the link from the lever to the safety on my Fox by following instructions I found on the net. Very simple task , just use proper screw drivers.

You've got a bigger set than me Johnboy. I've even bought a real "beater" just to experiment with. Where did you get the good info? PM me if you'd like. Thank you, Bob

If you really want to do the case color I would see if Briley could handle the whole project. They would sub out the work but I'm positive that the results would be great. Sending a gun or parts of it to several different sources is a pain.

How are you screwing it up. Only the receiver is original now. Beautiful added wood, certainly compliments the looks and is more of a shooter. Fix it the way you want it, I assume that's why you own it--to shoot and enjoy. Good Luck.

Thanks for the comments. I thought I might set it up for some Vintager matches.

Well, just got back from shooting it with some 28 ga Chambermates. Second station the trigger got really hard to pull and then it would not fire. The firing pin is protruding through the receiver face so probably the hammer didn't re-cock. Now have to add that to the worksheet!!!

I've scaled the work order back so as not to include new case coloring, Briley charges $600 for that. Maybe later....
