120X Straight B-Grade

Postby JasonPeck » Thu Oct 25, 2018 12:01 pm

Found in the wilds of Canada a few months ago. I finally got around to taking some pictures. 120X B-Grade with 28" barrels and straight grip. 6lbs 14oz. The wood condition and checkering blew me away for this early of a gun. Somehow I went from not owning any B-Grades to having too many.

Wow! That's a beauty. I really like "sub 7 lbs.". I'm a little jealous. Jeff

Jason, I really like the wood on that gun. It's beautiful. When members post pictures, I like to take the opportunity to educate myself. I thought that all "b" grades had a little engraving on barrels. Was it absent on the very early ones? Jeff

The bird first appears in the 1907 catalogues, both the "Finest Gun in the World" and the "Campfire".

Jason, do the Krupp markings on the bottom of the barrel tubes include the LIGHT WEIGHT BARREL line?

Sweet looking gun Jason.

Don't see hardly any of those real early B's.

Neat "SAFE"ty slide button too.

Jason, as you now have too many Bs I'll offer to give this peach a good home in my safe.

I have 4 straight grip foxes and find them to be the most attractive.

I also shoot them the best, which is definately more important!
