Bobski, as of now, this second, no. Life is getting in the way of my fun. As for my cracked forearm and rear stock, don't know what caused it. It was a limited run skeet gun made by SKB in the early 80s. There is no replacement wood to be had. It would have to be made.

The forearm crack was fixed by the SKB people out west (Omaha?) a month ago so it's probably okay. The rear has a 1 inch crack in the clear. I love the gun itself. Here it is:

It's the SKB 5600. 28-inch barrels (chrome lined) and mechanical triggers. Wide vented rib and fixed chokes in skeet/skeet. Breaks clays very well.

And by the way...I bought a Browning Citori 20 GA today. Never been fired. Extended skeet chokes. Cost me $1300.

good price on the 20ga.
those skb's are great guns. prone to spring problems but great otherwise. i had a factory 3 bbl set back in the 90's.
i'll keep you down as iffy, in case in the last moment you can make it. but if i fill the slot, we'll know it was coming. thanks for the heads up.

The SKB was popping open after the 2nd shot so I sent it to SKB and they fixed that. Works great now. I gave $600 for the 12 ga SKB (Japan not Ithaca) so I think I did okay even with the crack and torsion bar tighten. The guy I bought it from gave me $100 back (got it today) when he found out I had problems. Nice guy. They do exist.

Traded my SKB and 20 gauge Citori for a brand new 12 gauge Browning Citori with extended skeet chokes. Walked out and broke 24 of 25 not five minutes later.
