HA2865 Savage Fox A-Grade, Ambidextrous, Side-by-Side, 20 Ga., 2 3/4", 28"MC Bbls., New-In-Case, $3,895

Savage Says:  FOX A GRADE For more than a century, Fox shotguns have proven themselves as superb firearms and true works of art. The Fox A Grade series presented by Savage® builds upon that heritage of craftsmanship with shotguns that handle gracefully, point naturally and hit hard–with the same components and style that have made all Fox shotguns the envy of collectors. Each of the four box-lock side-by-sides in the series features a beautifully checkered American black walnut stock, splinter fore-end and a bone and charcoal case color-finished receiver.
FEATURES Anson Deeley-style box lock action, side-by-side shotgun Holland & Holland-style ejectors 14 1/2-inch length of pull, 1 1/2 inch drop at comb American black walnut stock with oil finish and precision-cut checkering Straight buttstock grip and splinter fore-end 26 or 28-inch barrels with solid game rib. Front brass bead sight  Includes interchangeable improved cylinder, modified and full chokes Double triggers and automatic safety. Bone and charcoal case color-finished receiver. Polymer carrying case.

Hero's Arms Says: Made in the USA for Savage by Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Company (CSMC) this Fox A-Grade is the epitome of tradition.  A truly classic hunting gun but with the addition of interchangeable CSMC thinwall chokes in Full, Improved Modified, Modified, Improved Cylinder, and Skeet constrictions. The classic double trigger allows for instant selection of the appropriate choke on the fly. The automatic safety which goes on when the gun is broken open, provides security in the field.  It weighs only six pounds, and shoots 2 3/4" 20 Gauge shells.  The wood is nicely figured, and the case coloring is bright.  An excellent choice for the traditional upland hunter.

HA2359 Perazzi (Ithaca) Mirage Sporting Combo, Long-LOP, O/U 12 Ga. 2 3/4", 30" Ported Bbls., Briley Sub-Gauge 20-28-410 30" Tubes, Extra Trigger, Stock, Springs, (Used-Custom), Cased, $6,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Perazzi Mirage was built in 1973 in Italy and was Imported by Ithaca. First it was used as a trap gun, but not used very much, then I bought it in 1992 and had Klaus Hiptmayer (now retired) carve me a stock from exhibition grade wood.  The stock was made to my dimensions, so the Length of pull is 15 7/8".  I was fascinated with the idea of a custom stock so I had the butt checkered, no pad.  I realized this was a mistake after shooting a round of Skeet with the 12 Gauge.  I think I have shot one or two rounds of Skeet with the 28 Gauge inserts in the last 20 years, so the gun is as modified. Any purchaser under 6'5" will probably want to have the stock shortened and a recoil pad fitted.  The bottoms of both triggers were engraved  by Heidi Hiptmayer (now deceased) with a Fleur-de-Lis with Serpent Entwined, which is the Hero's Arms Logo (at the top of this page), and also the Crest from the Buckner Family Coat of Arms.  In Heraldry the Fleur-de-Lis signifies purity, the Serpent signifies wisdom (after the Garden of Eden).  The 30" (760mm) barrels have sub-gauge tube fitted by Briley and Thin Wall Briley Choke tubes.  For the 12 Gauge there are five chokes, Full, Modified, Improved Cylinder and 2 Skeet.  For the 20-28-410 Tube sets each has Modified, Improved Cylinder and Two Skeet chokes.  The combo comes with a number of extras.  The gun itself comes with a non-selective trigger, the bottom barrel always fires first, so I bought a Selective Trigger assembly for it which is included.  Next, there is a set of replacement springs and firing pins, with wrench just in case they are needed in the middle of a competition. There is a Release Trigger Hook and spring so the standard trigger can be converted to a release trigger.  Finally, there is the original Trap Stock with an Edwards Recoil Reducer inside, and the original forearm.

HA2251 Charles Daly (Miroku) Kolar Skeet Combo, O/U, 12-20-28-410 28", Cased, Condition Various,  $2,995 SALE $2,495

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Charles Daly Superior Grade was originally built by Miroku in Japan, and is essentially a Browning Citori with some differences.  I had Midwest Gun Works replace the springs, check it over and re-blue the receiver, so mechanically it is in excellent condition.  There are numerous small handling marks on the wood, and the bluing on the right side of the lower barrel has some freckling, so no one will think this a new gun.  It has a 14 3/4" LOP over a Morgan Pad, which allows for the Drop At Heel to be adjusted to the shooter's choice. Each Gauge has 2 Skeet tubes, in addition the 12 has IC/Mod/Full, the 20 & 28 have IC/IC, and the 410 has Mod/Full.  It comes with a plastic mallet, a knock-out driver and choke wrenches for every gauge.  The Aluminum Case seems Airline Proof. The 12 Gauge, empty weighs 7 pounds 13 ounces, but with the barrel weight or sub gauge tubes installed it weighs around 8 pounds 9 ounces.  On the sides of the receiver there are what Charles Daly called "Selexors", which supposedly allow the shooter to select between ejection and extraction, but I have been unable to figure out how they work, so it just ejects.  I shot a round of Skeet with the 28 Gauge Tubes installed, and everything worked perfectly - except the shooter who got his usual score.  Anyway, it's a poor workman who blames his tools.  I have other 4 gauge sets available, but this one is a real bargain.

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Kolar Max Skeet was custom built for a big, tall right handed shooter.  It has a 15 7/8" Length of Pull, and weighs 10 pounds 8 ounces with the 12 Gauge barrels and within an ounce of that with the carrier barrels with sub-gauge tubes.   It has the Kolar LS3 competition stock configuration with 1 5/8" drop at Comb and Monte Carlo, 3 1/4" drop at Heel, 1/4" Offset to the right, and 3/4" Toe out.  Both the 12 Gauge barrels and the carrier barrels have ribs adjustable for Point Of Impact from 50%/50% to 70%/30%.  It has a hi-gloss blue receiver, a $795 upgrade from the standard nickel finish.  It comes with Kolar Chokes in Modified, Light Modified, Improved Cylinder and Skeet/Skeet in 12 Gauge.  The Kolar AAA sub gauge tubes have Skeet/Skeet chokes, with an extra Improved Cylinder choke in 20, 28 and 410.  It has nicely figured wood.  It has been serviced by Kolar and is in excellent condition. There are a few small handling marks so I rate it at 99% condition.  This is a gun for the serious skeet competitor.  Free Shipping in the original 48 states.
