Akers, She's a beaut. As usual, C3 is right. I own a 185-d, and a 185-ka. Go with bismuth, the older barrels will not handle steel.
Axxe. As I said in the other 385 thread, nice lookin' shotgun.
Here's a pic of my 185-d. Aside from age ( mine was made between 1946 and 1949) the differences are; bolt design, interchangeable chokes (Barrel threaded on the outside, tubes on the inside), and no rear sight. Mine does have a Redding peep sight that can be adjusted for elevation and windage. it was bought used in 1954 by my grandfather who passed it down ro my father in 1965, who passed it down to me in 1988. My step- daughter is the 4th generation of my family to carry it afield, but she still has yet to take a deer with it. Maybe this year.
As I said guys, Nice looking shotties!
Is it better to do the right thing for the wrong reason, or to do the wrong thing for the right reason? If you do the wrong thing for the right reason, is it still the wrong thing?
Si vis pacem para bellum.
There are two ways of doing something. Right and again.
If you can't be good, be great at it.
