Here is the 12 ga single I'll be restoring. Going to be trying it this weekend in the grouse woods. I was playing with swinging it last night and think it swings rather nice, and is a load lighter than my 870. Still debating on what finish I want to use on it.
I imagine I will have to have my thumb on the hammer at all times and trigger finger pointed down the barrel, and on the ready. I am excited to try this guy out and see how it will work for me.
I want a nice double gun but hope this will get my by for now. I am unsure of what it is choked too, but am hoping it is improved or modified. I will throw up a few pattern shots with it before going out and see how it does.
Wondering if anyone out there has used a single for upland hunting, and if that hammer is a big issue. I will have to remember to put it back on safety for sure. I will be using Remington nitro sporting clays with 1 1/8 oz of 7.5. I was surprised at how much they actually kicked out of the 870 and can see this will be whacking me with the light single shot.
