    In a box marked Crossman Miniature Clay Pigeons. I know of the Mossberg miniatures but all I see on Crossman was a 2 piece plastic deal. Maybe they made 'em to fit the Mossberg thrower ? Who knows something ? Size- about 2 11/16" across.

    No experience myself but we have frequent vintagr rifle matches - one guy did shoot his Krag with bay mounted and couldn't tell any difference(200 yards). Now we may have to create 2 classes - one rifle only, one with fixed bayonets !
