    kof sceptre 20 gauge

    tried one on for size at the tibbletarium
    holy crap must have been the youth model.
    shortish in the stock 26 inch barrels 3inch chambers 4.4 ilbs yes 4 POINT 4 BLOODY POUNDS.
    3 inch steel would be a real delight in that rig
    might have to go for the 28 inch model didn't think to ask about chokes but I think theyre multi.
    be a lovely quail gun.

    That'd be an awesome quail/pheasant gun, even lighter than my 28 gauge!

    That would put your young fellas or fellesses off shooting for life with heavy magnum 20ga loads

    yea given the limited availability of 20 gauge steel
    all you can get is trap loads or 3 inch black cloud.
    with a slip on recoil pad over the current one it would have been pretty close to perfect for my short arms
    but even my now unlawful over water lead 2 3/4 fiochhi goose bashers [30 grams of lead 2,s]
    would be hard in a gun that light if it wasn't padded .
    the 3 inch lead loads were more hype and noise than actual need
    be a fantastic gun for quail/pheasant hunts over dogs or up in the hills for chukar where your carrying more than your shooting.

    went back in to visit the sceptre but ran into a aya 106 12g in great nick.
    couldn't resist open choke and 2 3/4 inch steel capable.
    cant wait to test in the morning for geese and paries tomorrow avo.
    will post some proper pics when the opportunity presents

    god I love a well balanced double
    even faststeel and gamebiore fast 2 3/4 inch 32 gram loads couldn't dampen my enthusiasm.
    got some fitasc loads in 6.5 shot?????
    cos I had no 12 gauge lead at all
