I recently bought one in 16 gauge, new from John Boyd in Houston. Single trigger, English stock, screw in chokes and 28" barrels. I am very happy with it. I am going to have a sporting pad fitted to it without cutting the wood and will retain the original hard butt pad. It beat up my shoulder pretty well after 4 rounds of club Skeet with it.
I bought it after I canceled my order from the Dickinson Custom Shop when the order got so screwed up.
The wood is not as nice as what I have seen on the custom shop Dickinson's and I have heard they work on the triggers of the custom shop orders.
The trigger on mine is ok, but I am still having it cleaned up by my local smith.
Enjoy and post how your road trial goes.

I ran across a new Charles Daly 520 sxs the other day at a local shop. Comes with 5 tubes, semi beavertail, st, pistol grip, and only $700. Unfortunately it only comes in a 20 and 12ga. Fit me perfectly, and I was impressed with the overall fit and finish. Much better than I would have expected for a $700 gun. I'm considering the 12 for a dedicated target gun.
