As we begin the new millennium, we are particularly proud to introduce a new series of target over & unders called the 85 Target Super Sport. The 85TSS series is offered in a full line of Sporting, Skeet, and Trap models. With 70 different configurations to choose from, the 85TSS series is unquestionably one of the largest selections of target over & under shotguns offered by any manufacturer today.
Not only is the 85TSS series the most comprehensive line of target over & unders, SKB has also “raised the bar” on “out of the box” performance features. You will discover that the new 85TSS series is simply the most technically advanced target model ever produced by SKB.
The 85TSS series features a low profile box lock action fitted with a “competition barrel group”, a “tournament stock and forend”, and a “refined trigger group”. These components are the fundamental elements which give the 85TSS its responsive handling, well balanced fit, fast sighting plane, crisp trigger, soft feel, and hard hitting attributes.
The development and design of the 85TSS series is, in part, attributable to the comments and ideas received from a network of competitive shooters and customers throughout the United States and other countries. Their suggestions provided the basis for design changes, technical refinements, and the inclusion of the specialized equipment developed by leading aftermarket manufacturers. Special recognition goes to those industry professionals who provided technical assistance in the development of the new 85TSS series; Fred Wenig of Wenig Custom Gun Stocks, Mike Jordan former Winchester Pro-Staff shooter, Cliff Moller of Briley Manufacturing, Kent Heitz of HI-VIZ Sight Systems, Gary Phipps of GRACO Corporation, Rick Ranzinger of Pachmayr, and Ken Kelly of Mag-Na-Port International.
For the past 150 years, SKB has produced high quality firearms in Japan with a tradition of handmade craftsmanship. Over the past 36 years, SKB has provided the American target shooter and hunter with a variety of shotgun models, all produced in that same tradition. Many of these shotguns have been passed from generation to generation and remain in service today. As we approach our 150th Anniversary, the staffs of the New SKB Arms factory and G.U. Inc., the U.S. importer, have reaffirmed our commitment to excellence in the traditions of handmade craftsmanship. We will continue to provide our customers with technically innovative products at affordable prices while offering the very best in personal customer service.
