Factory Simmons Rib

Proof marking on the side of the barrel (see picture 2) so it had a rib before proofing.

I have a Ithaca 37 skeet with a knickabocker rib made in 1945. It does not like steel based hulls and I hate to shoot my compressioned Winchester reloads in it.

My 16's aren't skeet models, but I've shot a lot of clays with them and collected a few items like this....

I have a 1935 31 remington solid rib skeet gun. It has a distinctive large checkered forearm and nicely checkered stock.

my 1946 Ithaca 37 hates rem game load hulls I reload, but loves the older rem/peters hulls, for some reason the rim does not expand when sizing.

9 (ch) is Number 9 CHILLED shot

Good stuff for skeet

It is not as hard a Magnum shot and will spread out better at skeet yardages.

I only use magnum shot in the 28 and 410 reloads

Mike

As for many here, all of them can be Skeet guns at various times. A M97 with a Cyl choke is probably better suited than some, and a barrel with no choke makes the A5 good for it. My M21 is a Trap grade, but with barrels of only 26" and chokes of Modified in the right and Cyl in the left it seems to have been made for Skeet of the day.
