  1. There were 2 levels of guns from SKB. 100 and 200, the 150 came along later which was a higher grade 100, splinter or beaver fore end. The 100 was extractors only, 150 could be either. The 200 always was an ejector gun.

    The 200 and 280 English straight stock had split ejectors which have to be disengaged for our sport. Pretty easy to do.

    ALL of the models could be ordered with engraving, silver nitride , and different fore ends. They were the poor mans answer to the BSS and were all hand fitt d and extremely well made.

  2. Dee you make a good point about a shell slipping under the lip of extractor from split ejectors. It can happen when the rim ring is chamfered down too far or it's taken past 180'. The bottom part of the rim of the ejectors (now extractors) should be left alone just for this reason.

  3. Cannot imagine how the split extractor would affect anyone's ability to shoot anywhere near as fast as the gun is capable of. More modifications is not necessarily better. I built a Bunch of 200's with split extractors ( used to be ejectors) and never had an issue with them needing welding,

  4. 100's typically have splinter forends and generally non switchable as far as which barrel fires first, 200's usually have beaver tail forends and switchable between which barrel fires first, 280's (the few that I have seen) seem to be a nicer grade of wood with a straight English type stock. The 100 and 200 models are usually pistol grip stocks. Have seen several where the forends are opposite (splinter on 200, beaver tail on 100) don't know if the shooter switched or they came that way. Have never actually seen a 150 so can't say there but I seem to recall someone saying they are a 100 with nicer engraving. There are plenty of other combinations of forend, stock type, quantity/quality of engraving etc which may be factory and may be shooter changed.

    I like the 200 version with beaver tail forend and pistol grip. Mine have a conversion to a mechanical rather than an inertial switch between barrels so the button to switch is locked in place. I am a larger cowboy :P 6 feet and 260 so the larger 200 fits me better.

    The 100-150-200 and 280 ALL have single selective triggers which allows for changing the first barrel fired except for a very few early doubles trigger guns.

    Generally once a mechanical trigger is added the selective trigger feature is rendered nonfunctional.

    For ends were available in both beaver and splinter for all the guns if ordered. Usually the 150-200-280 all came with beaver tails , the 100 usually came with the splinter as it was the base grade gun. Sold new in the 70's for $150 or less
