http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-faces-toast-beers.gif Nice piece Loco, I almost got one of those myself when they first came out back in the early 80's.
I was in the market for a new piece, at the time, of the first Raahauge's shooting fair. I spent several dollars shooting that gun in 20ga. Sweet, just like you said.
I really like the straight grip(English stock). Is your gun a 12 bore? What's the weight? If I remember right, should be around 7.5#! Maybe a little less? You're gonna really like this gun, should be a fine upland auto!
I have a 12 bore and a LT-20 1100, but I don't shoot them much anymore! Back in '85, I bought a Citori O/U in 20ga. 26", english straight stock, the only thing is I wish it would have come with 3" chambers, but I've been doing just fine with the std. 2&3/4", I've bagged pheasants by the bushell, quail, chukars, dove and sage grouse with no sweat! This gun weighs in under 7#'s.
The overall length of your gun should be about 43-45"? That's part of what makes the upland special, special and sweet, as you say!
Happy shootin, you made a good choice! http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-shootin-green.gif

It's a 12ga, circa 1983...Target barrel - I haven't weighed it, but it's light.
I've always wanted a "11 hunnert", and when I first saw the "special" with the straight stock a couple of years ago on the computer, I really got the itch. I couldn't believe it when I saw it at a local shop on the consignment rack.

http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-faces-toast-beers.gif consignment rack! must of got a good deal on it then, thats great. Lotta folks don't like the straight stock. Target barrel? Does that mean it didn't come rem-chok'd? If not, I'd recommend, getting a rem-choke barrel. They can be tubed by a gunsmith, I did that with an extra barrel for my LT20, it now has Briley tubes, cost the same as buying a factory one, I just did an impulse thing at the time!
In the picture your gun looks new, you found a good one, many moons of gunning with that thing, fine gun!

It has the rem-choke..Remington sez "target" contour = max loads of 3 1/4 dram and 1 1/4 oz. shot....
Not for ducks or geese, but plenty for upland. I can't wait to do some clays with it.
