The first shotgun I owned, and inherited. Black stock and foregrip, dark grey paint/finish. Must be old cuz there is no serial number.
Main question is it still usable? It says only proof tested for 2 3/4 shells, but 12 guage FULL (?) I have dry cycled it and functions as well as my shotgun noob ass can figure out.
I will get pictures up, of it and the other M44s, SKSs', and a 16 guage I was left with.

If it's in good shape, no reason you can't bag a few birds with it.
Don't push it, just love it a little.

Knockonit know a thing or two about shotguns, maybe he'll impart some wisdom.
