Your opinions of the listed gun are most welcomed.
Some will die in hot pursuit
And fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit
While sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life
And drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain

    At $275 or so...buy it.
    IMHO, just about any gun made in the 50's and 60"s is worth more than it's later day counter-part. That gun was made by a GUNSMITH, not by an assembly line.
    Only thing is, it has the old friction ring adjustments. It may have been abused by using wrong loads or wrong settings.

    From the discription:

    The barrel is stamped "**" -- which I'm guessing is a choke code for modified.

    Two "**" is improved modified in case you were considering purchase.[;)]

    1= Full
    2= Imp Mod
    3= Mod
    4= IC
    5= Skeet or Cyclinder(depending on maker)

    The problem with long out of production, foreign made, orphan guns, is that if something goes south you are screwed. I have been in this position a number of times, and fortunately have been able to get the replacement parts I needed to make the guns functionable. Not everybody lucks out though, finding the parts they need at a realistic price.
