This was payment for screwing floor joists together its a 16 ga crescent victor special
I like it. Im a sucker for break action shotties!
Yea I've been doing some research and I guess theres no clear way to determine exact range but its sure as hell old
Exact age not range
The trigger Guard and Hammer suggest to me it is that range of age. Maybe older or Newer. I really like it. A bit of carpentry work brings some awesome rewards. And I am in the right line of work since i am in carpentry classes in college lol
Oh yea I look forward to future business
on the stock? Gonna restore it?
Yea its electric tape I didn't put it there. I do wanna restore it but every sight I've went to seems to be sold out of replacement stocks and forends
You can repair it, if it is!
Dont feel bad I have it on my Marlin 25N. When I got it its rear sight was missin so I took one from a BB gun and set it up and taped it on,adjusted it and it works just as good.
Haha sketchy snake and yea it has a pretty big crack running vertically down the side. how can you repair them though
and put wood glue in the crack and clamp it.......then you can sand down and refinish it!
Thanks do you recommend any type of finish for it
Its easier to get someone to make you a new stock for it. Give the guy the stock on your gun and tell him to replicate it. Then put the new one on and ya dont have to worry about more cracks in ya stock. I will leave the COA to you my friend.
a color you like, then put a poly finish on it semi gloss or gloss.
That's defiantly an idea I might ask my dad to make one with me he had to make one for his old pump 22
Thanks guys will do ill post pics if my dad ever gets around to helping me fix it
Iver Johnson Champion lol My buddy has one but its not in the best shape. Basically he screwed the gun over makin modifications to it. The breech opens each time ya pull the trigger which means the shell flies out during the shot which is scary as hell. last time I shot it the damn thing opend up and the shelll grazed my noggin and hit the side of his house putting a small dint in the siding. Thats more than enough to say "Snake leave it alone!!!" I havent shot it since and never will I tell ya what!
Hahaha lmao I'd steer clear of that contraption
If he gives it to me I will use the wood for fire wood and sell the metal for scrap hahaha!
Just a couple words of caution here. That Mfg stopped making shotties under that name sometime in the 1930 I believe, they were bought out by I think Savage. They were very cheaply made. Also check the chamber. most old 16's had a 2 9/16" chamber & are not safe with ANY modern load. They do look very nice restored & displayed. If you insist on firing it, take it to a good smith for a good going over, Then find a custom shell loader to do you some 2 9/16" Mild loads. But don't be surprised if the smith tells you what I just did. "Don't fire it" Pretty it up & display it. Most of that "Old" wood massages out to be absolutely beautiful.
Good luck with it. keep us informed.
