Looks like nice gun. The things I always wonder is why they donít give the important info. Chamber length, bore condition( not good), wall thickness and choke measurements. But they did use their modern choke scale, what ever that is. I think itís a gamble with these old guns, however, they do offer 3 day inspection.

Looks like a pretty sizeable dent in the right-hand barrel in picture 19. I'd avoid it.

+1 there are better guns out there in that price range .

no connection, but I have seen pictures of this gun on another site , looks to be in very nice condition.

Tired old gun. Barrel dents, cracked forearm, buggered top lever screw, checkering almost worn off. I'd pass.

You know the seller is struggling to say something good about the gun when they have to say "front bead is still very solid". That gave me a laugh. Laughing

No matter the purchase price...... there would be a cost to repair bbl dings / dents.
Gun is overpriced IMO.

Run, don't walk from that one. Do you have to have an American classic? Easy to make expensive mistakes in the genre, ask me how I know. Embarassed Repairs on oldies are expensive and slow, mostly.

For that money go get yourself a CZ Bobwhite G2 and smile.

My mother never shot mine, but I sure wouldn't trade my 16ga Stevens 5100 for any CZ. But then, strokes for folks.
