Interesting catalog information

I recently acquired a very old Hunter Arms Smith catalog and found some interesting info in it. You may already know this stuff but I thought I'd print it anyway |
**Each grade in this catalog is prefaced by the word "Quality"
**The A-2, A-1, 5, 4, 3, and 2 were offered in 8 gauge
**The A-2 was offered with damascus or Whitworth barrels, the A-1 with damascus only, 5, 4, and 3 with damascus or nitro, the 2 with damascus or crown, the pigeon with nitro or crown, the 1 with laminated, the 0 with twist. The Quality A-3 was listed but with minimal description. The Quality pigeon left the factory with a straight stock but could also be ordered with a half, 3/4, or full pistol grip. The terms"new nitro" and "new crown" were used in the descriptions. Also had an ad in the catalog for Hunter bicycles.
