    I just inherited this shotgun from my father, who bought it used in the 1960s. I can post pictures tonight but here's a description: 32" full choke barrel, straight stock, model number on barrel says "Model 10-S" and slide bar says "Trap Grade".

    According to Remington's web site these were the models offered:
    I did find a similar gun on TFL here, but the markings on mine are different.

    Anybody ever heard of a 10-S? Or would it be the "No. 3 Trap Special Grade"?

    Thanks. Found this little gem by "Researcher":
    From the 1913-14 catalog.

    A pretty expensive gun in that era when $40 was roughly equivalent to $1600 today.

    Good. Thanks.

    I know this firearm is functional. Heck, it's about 90% by my standards (blueing worn on the sharp edges only, still deep and black, checkering still sharp).

    I'll shoot some clays with it this weekend, then mostly retire it, except for special occasions. Maybe a pheasant hunt, or one more day in the goose pit.

    I figure its earned its rest, just like my dad. :(
