Nice video!
I love the smoke pouring out of the breech when you eject the shell.

Shooting skeet with them would be fun no doubt. I just picked up a 1901 (same basic design but made for smokless and in 10 gauge) that I plan to take on a duck hunt.

For sure. That's a lot of black powder and being a repeater you can get the smoke a rolling.

Those 87s are a lot of fun. I had one of the Chinese knock-offs a while back and it needed some slicking up to run smoothly, but it gave me a taste.
There was a guy who ran one in 10 gauge at my old Ashland Gun Club back in Oregon. Every time he fired it, the big booming bass of a blackpowder shotgun going off brought a smile to all.

I have a Norinco version also that is slicked up for cowboy action and has a drop two conversion done to it. Super fun to shoot.
The original 1887 was made for black powder but my Model 1901 is made for smokless 10 gauge.
