I just bought this Peterson Dunmore of the Bay. Usually I would put this under the PAD section but I would like some of your input/thoughts about this stinger. This is the first Peterson I have ever seen with a stinger. I knew that stingers were usually removed from Kaywoodies and Dr. Grabows but I didn't even know there were any Peterson's that had stingers.... So, do some of them come with stingers??? I'm leaning towards the idea that this pipe was not meant to have a stinger. Reason being, in the second picture you can see that the stem doesn't fit all the way into the shank. The tip of the stinger prevents it from going in all the way. Also, if you are familiar with the Peterson design then you know the draw hole is in the very top of the inside of the shank. The stinger opening is to the side and does not align with where the draw hole is in the shank. Let me know your thoughts and check out the pics!
