SKB Says:  The Century III is a specialized Trap shotgun for singles and handicapped events. From the XLT pad to the muzzle, the Century III is constructed from performance based components and design features that will enable the shooter to develop their skills to compete at the next level of competition. The Century III barrel features 2 3/4" chamber, lengthened forcing cone, fitted with the competition series choke tube system and equipped with a shell extractor. The finished barrel has a highly polished chrome interior, jeweled monobloc and matte black chrome exterior. The sighting plane is a 10mm top ventilated rib with a matte surface and target sights. Offered with 30, 32, or 34 inch barrel with either Reduced or Standard length stock. The Century III steel receiver; is a low profile box lock action with a bright blue finish. The trigger geometry is designed to lift the sear tail vertically, which releases the hammer with less trigger travel and pull weight, providing the shooter with a crisp, responsive feel. The coil spring system are designed to provide years of reliable power. The Century III is equipped with a manual safety.

Hero's Arms Says:  This is a wonderful trap gun.  It can fit just about any right handed shooter from 5' to 6' 4" tall with a Length of Pull that varies between 13 3/4" and 15 1/2".  It has a right handed palm swell.  It has about a 3/16" cast off. With its 8 pound 9.5 ounce weight and decelerator recoil pad you can shoot it all day. The comb slopes forward so it drops away from the face when recoiling.  It comes with three SKB Competition Choke Tubes in Full, Improved Modified, and Modified constrictions and others can be ordered from SKB.  The Butt Plate can be raised or lowered or canted for comfort for men and women.  It has very nice wood.  It is hard to find a trap gun at three times the price with these features.
