    I had one. Bought it in 1980 at Kittery Trading Post, Maine and sold it at a gun show in Estes Park, Colo less than a year later.
    I regret selling it. Made in 1911 with nitro steel 28" barrels, nice wood but oil soaked at head and badly cracked. I had that repaired.
    Had old English pad added as orig. stock was less than 14". Bad ring bulge in right barrel, 4" from the muzzle.
    It handled wonderfully and I shot a few grouse with it. I miss it very much, despite its' problems. Ah foolish youth!
