In 1987 a local store of a large national sporting goods chain was closing their doors and selling out at super discounts. One of these bargains was a skeet gun made by Nikko. I know quite a bit about Nikko, but am unable to find anything written anywhere on my model. It is a very nice coin finished stackbarrel labelled Model 2500. I know I don't own the only one in the universe and would like to know if anyone out there has any info on this gun.

Do a google search for nikko shotguns, you will get 500,000 hits on nikko!:)

Cheaper than dirt comes up with a full history of the guns and many of the hits are from users.:D

They appear to have been made in the 1980's - IIRC, there was a GUN DIGEST or GUNS ILLUSTRATED article or blurb on them from 15-20 years ago, but I'm too lazy to go through all my back issues/collection to find it. (Sorry again)

FWIW, Nikko-Kodensha was the actual maker of the Weatherby Olympian O/U shotgun from 1977 to 1981, when SKB took over the Weatherby contract.
