    Smok'n Hot not Tacti-cool

    Remington Wingmaster 870 surplused by the California Highway Patrol with a replacement Remington 18.5 improved cylinder barrel, a vintage Jostam Hy-Gun recoil pad, checkering by Sycamore Hill Designs and wood refinishing by yours truly.

    1956 Ithaca 37 with barrel cut to 18.5", a Galazan reproduction pad and a walnut stock with an ivory grip cap refinished by yours truly.

    Good looking guns! I too like the wood, I have 1 black .22, 1 black SKS, and 1 black .308, everything else wears wood!

    Very nice. I like the wood on both of them.

    The one below is modified Remington 1100. It`s not pretty, but it gets the job done.

    I just love the looks of that blonde 870. It just looks serious.
    The M37 is sweet though too. Nice scatterguns!
