Just so you don't think we are ignoring you, I have not seen one but do know what you are talking about from old Shooters Bible listings.

when i went in the navy, my dad sold his two family house(no more free painter, lawn mowing, snow removal, etc.). he traded the 30 foot ladder i used for one of those abominations.
...as noted harrington and richardson was the importer.
...space aliens must have been guinea pig for the stock dimensions cause no normal human could hit anything with it.
...any who thanks for the refresh of past memories. bobn

ps also got a ridding lawn mower and a snow blower soon. lol

What we had around here besides the usual name brands were the Mauser-Bauer trap guns, actually made in Italy. I think somebody local got set up as a dealer and was selling them to club members just over wholesale.

A trap gun is set up for trap shooting, not very good for anything else, 34" would be a benefit for a Trap gun.

A Trapshooter here said a 34" Full would take a squirrel out of a tall tree.

it has to do with balance per owner. a 34 i too bbl heavy for me. 30 works best for my stature.
