Remington Model 10 Trench Shotgun
Hello, I received a shotgun from an estate and as my closet is full, I was going to move it along. It is in decent enough shape for a working shotgun. However when researching it, I find that the receiver is in the range of the WW1 model 10A trench shotgun 128000 to 166000. It is U157152.
The barrel & furniture do not appear to be from the same period. This looked like it was rebuilt after the war as a hunting shotgun. Far be it for me to judge those in the great depression. Do to a poorly aging re-bluing, I am unable to see ordnance department markings on the Left side.
My question is, are there those that will collect this weaopon just for the authentic receiver. I have a sense of history & collect older battle rifles, I'm also a realist that this is far from collectible condition, it is just the receiver. Any ideas?
