Baker Single Selective trigger
Posted by denver dillard on July 18, 2020, 4:59 pm
Being a man with little patience, I have a question about a Baker which I just purchased at auction without personal examination. It is a 12 gauge R Grade with first style engraving, so circa 1906-07. It has Krupp barrels, ejectors and a single selective trigger. The auctioneer said he can see no name on either side of the trigger. It will be 2-3 weeks before I can do an exam. Images of Baker catalogs of that era show single triggers. Does anyone know whether Baker made a single trigger or farmed it out to Miller or some other source? Any connection to the Lard patent?
I hope this stirs education for the rest of us.
