After many years of being Superposed challenged, I recently finished a
28 gauge Superposed project. A 1968 RKST Salt Wood restoration and upgrade.

Now an Angelo Bee Superlight Pointer. 28" Skeet.

I acquired a 1967 Superposed .410, RKST in what appears to be unfired condition.
Sold as a 28" Skeet gun I was happily surprised to find the chokes Full/Mod.
I was most impressed with the Grade 1 wood.

Lack of use didn't stop it's proud owner of taking it in and out of the safe a bajillion times.
Art's is returning the wood to "Factory New" and is installing a proper Long Tang.
Now the rub. An "in the white" set of 28 gauge barrels, 28" no choke.

Art's filled in all the missing parts, carved it's own forend, and fit the barrels to the grade 1 .410.
I'm primarily a skeet shooter and upland hunter.
For fixed chokes I'm thinking .007 / .005 Improved Skeet / Skeet or .011 / .007 IC / Improved Skeet.

Being older and wiser I'm subscribing to the theory "Less is More".
I have fewer (but nicer) guns than I've had in the past 20 years. Fewer "dedicated" guns.
Since this is a composed set and altering chokes won't land me a fiery spot in Hell,

Why not Briley's ???

Genius or head up my backside ???

Nice gun. Nice job.

Good troll question on the chokes.
