Finish Originality: Factory Original
Bore Condition: The bore is bright with scattered pits and erosion. None of these threaten the ability of this gun to shoot and none compromise safe barrel wall thickness.
Overall Condition: This shotgun retains about 65% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows thinning on the underside of the frame and the lower tang. The barrel at the chambers shows patches of finish loss as well. The remaining finish has begun to turn a plum color. This is a well used but still very functional and even attractive shotgun which is in the kind of condition where you wouldn’t mind taking this gun into the field and letting it earn a few more marks. The screw heads are serviceable but a bit worn. The markings are clear. Overall, this shotgun rates in about Good to Very Good condition.
Mechanics: The action functions correctly and while the gun opens easily, there is no play once closed and with the forearm mounted. We have not fired this shotgun.
