The classic 16s are starting to accumulate. I just added a model 12 Winchester a couple weeks ago.

Left to right, 1953 Sweet Sixteen, 1938 Ithaca 37 Skeet and the model 12.

Nice collection! Swap a M97 for the M37 and we've got the same useful rack of repeaters.

What's next?

Actually the 37 is the favorite of the bunch. Next might be a 97 or 31. It would have to be a 26 IC or perhaps cylinder.

Thank you sir. The rack was a winter kill I found one year while caribou hunting. It was the only one I saw on that trip.

I like the poly chokes as well. They look right on the old guns. The one on the Browning is a Cyclone.

Very useful piece of equipment .

Most folks say they don't like the look on the end or say they see it while shooting .

Looking at the wrong thing I always say .

Regards,. Nick

Dial up is real slow , one of these days I will get the rest of the turkeys loaded.

Very nice, love the classic pumps! My only poly is on a M12 WS1 , 12 ga and I was looking for something of interest with a poly choke ! Friends think I'm nuts...
My 16s are a first year(1913 if memory is working)M12, 1937 M31, 1954 JC Higgins 100,1957 M37R, and the spring chicken is a 1960 Rem 870. Gotta open the chokes on the Higgins, its full and fuller! Would like to find a nice cheap early Stevens 94 single barrel 16 to go with the 28ga ive got. No need, just want😁
