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!
Thanks kfox.....and thanks for the info....that's another nice old bolt action shotty you have there too
