    All,

    Was wondering if anyone has any experience with these. They are the same shotguns as “Dickinson Arms” sold by Cabela’s. They are modified with front and rear sights, and regulated for Brenneke slugs.

    I was thinking about picking one up for Southern Michigan deer hunting in the shotgun only zone. Here’s a link:

    Not familiar with the Whitworth, but this type gun is not uncommon in states that do allow center fire rifles. Here is one made on a Larona base by a gunsmith in Iowa:

    Gone for pix.

    20 gauge Larona mentioned above. Note express sight, scope mount, and nice wood.

    Nice, nothing like being able to cast your own whenever you need some.
