We’re in the middle of an ammunition pandemic.
I’m sitting on hundreds if not thousands of first fire 12 gauge Federal paper hulls, a mountain of wads, a ton of lead and a boatload of primers. Plenty of powder too.
I load a pillow soft 6000 psi, 1130 FPS load...

...but don’t have a 12 gauge Skeet gun to shoot them out of.

Along comes a RKLT 12 gauge Pigeon Skeet. Sweet.

Image

Now the conundrum.

Who’s the engraver ?? BA

Is that a stamp ? Or engraved ? No BA that I’m aware of. You can always ask your neighbor.

To borrow from a friend's opinion; I think you should under no circumstances fire that Pigeon Grade without knowing who is the engraver. To do so, would potentially be very dangerous! Therefore, I will step up and pay you $500 to take that "dangerous to the public" firearm off your hands. You're welcome. I am simply a kind & generous soul.

Hometown boy is maintaining radio silence.
I put out a call to a couple of guys that I know.
I found the following.
Mid 60’s Pigeon grade, 20 gauge 2 barrel set.

Check out the engravers signature

And does it appear to be engraved or stamped ? Neither of the photos are that clear..
Btw , how close are the serial numbers on the two Pigeons ?
