ihad an aubrey gun, loved it, was damascus, and believe me, it surporised many out in the field, i was killing pheasants at 50 plus yards with ease, with black powder 1 1/8 oz loads of #6 using 90 gr of 2f black powder in a 2 3/4" shotshell, i even harvested a doe with buckshot with it at 35 yrds, i kick my self for trading it off, but we all make mistakes,

Maybe the ad copy was right!?! :wink:

1908 Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalog
The Great A.J. Aubrey Gun: "The shooting qualities of these guns are unequaled for long distance killing, long range shooting, for penetration, pattern or target. Both barrels are full choke bore, so firmly constructed that unlike other guns, there is no recoil or kicking. That which in other guns goes into recoil in the A J Aubrey gun goes to give greater force to the shot."

I have run across a number of posts and information suggesting that most 2 3/4 shot shells will work in an older Damascus shotgun, such as mine(1909).
Your thoughts?

Doubtless ALL 2 3/4" shells would work in a 1909 damascus barrel, whether I would be wanting to hold the handle at the time is another matter :shock:

I have an AJ Aubrey that the trigger plate is fractured in two near the after end of the trigger cut out. Anyone have a trigger floor plate?
