Barrel Regulation and Point of Impact Shooting each gun from a solid rest at a steel pattern plate 25 yards away, I checked point of impact relative to point of aim, and whether the top and bottom barrels shot to the same spot.
Fit and Finish I closely inspected wood-to-metal fit, wood quality and finish, checkering, barrel bluing, and receiver finish.
Trigger Pull Using a Lyman digital trigger-pull gauge, I measured the pull for both the first and the second shot. I also evaluated the pull quality.
Handling To approximate handling in a field situation, I shot low-gun skeet with each gun.
