Re: The mystery of the 'R' suffix :( DUMPSTER FIRE REVISITED
The escutcheon style on your 20-bore was introduced with the elimination of the "banjo" escutcheon. Not sure exactly when that change occurred (late 30's maybe?), but that is a clear indication to me that your gun was returned to Hunter long after it originally shipped for the addition of auto-ejectors.
