One of the best endorsements for a Japanese SKB side by side is that Rod Gates of Jordan has one modern S/S, a 12 gauge Model 100.

He can manufacture a brand new double gun from scratch, and any part to an L.C. Smith except the barrel tubes, and he doesn’t mess with filing new actions.

Gates claims in a hundred years the worst thing about the SKB guns will be somebody trying to make those dad gummed roll pins.:)

But the roll pins can always be fabricated from pin stock, and peened on the ends.

But even Gates buys every new and used part, he can, to economically repair a double shotgun. He located and installed a used right hand hammer for my 1927 Fox Sterlingworth.

He’ll claim he doesn’t own a Phillips head screwdriver, but I don’t think he counts those five in one cheapies, you know?

The earlier grades go from Model 100, 200, and top of the line 280.

Let's not forget the Ithaca/SKB models 400 and 480.

Or the briefly offered model 150.

I once owned a 12 gauge Mitsui branded model 285. I didn't like the single trigger or the fat beavertail forearm, so I sold it. Mechanically, the gun was flawless.
