This gun originally came from a retired Navy Officier that was in charge of the shooting ranges on base in Japan during the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. He was a frequent visitor of the various gun manufacturing industries in Japan and was given this gun during a visit to the Sabaka group in Japan, the makers of SKB guns. I purchased this several years ago from a FFL down South when I collected SKB SxS shotguns and have since sold most all of them and this one remains, the best for last! This is the information I was given from the FFL that the family sold the guns to. I never shot the gun or took it apart as it was just a part of a vast collection I once had of SKB shotguns. I have not researched this any further since the SABAKA group has dissolved and cannot guarantee the story. It sounded all correct when I talked to the ffl and that’s why I purchased it several, several years ago. Look at the pictures. Only markings on the gun are the s/n, no manufacturer, no proofs.
