    Looks like they're in pretty good shape for the age. I'm liking some of the older guns more than the newer. Still believe the finish and workmanship were much better then. Have seen more than a few current generation 870s that were pretty disappointing.

    Those to shotguns above have been used more than a $2 hooker
    My other o/u's are mint. dad would have kicked my butt otherwise. even if I shot it once dad made me strip it clean it and oil it. one reason was we lived along the coast of Japan and hunted the coast, every thing rusts.

    Not counting the benielles the newest shotgun is a 1972 101's mirukos citoris even my 1100 are form the 60s and early 70's we got good deals on the Base in Japan. I think the 101 O/U was like 190 bucks. have all the org reciepts too
    I think my o/u berreta might be a 80s model forgot I even had that shotgun until I started typing.

    Started digging shotguns when I started working at a trap & skeet club when I was a kid.

    Some ransom pics I happen to have handy to post:

    My original Win 97 made in 1916 next to my Norinco Trench 97




    11-87 Police, Benelli M3 Super 90, and my old trusty 1100 with the long barrel on it



    Converted Saiga on top, 1100 w/21" bbl and my Norinco 97 trench

    I meant to quote weenis as this was a reply to his post.

    I was skeptical at first having seen some of their initial cowboy 97's. But when I heard they were importing American Walnut to make the stocks for them I decided to wait and see how they looked in person. When I finally to to handle one I was surprised it was decent. A little rough in the machining but overall pretty good. I bought it and after running a few hundred rounds through it the action started getting smoother.

    Did some testing of 3" .410 loads and brought out a few of my .410's to test them.

    On top is my original M6 Scout. I shoot his a lot and used it for the buggered up shells that I would have had to single load in the others.

    In the middle is a newer production 1100

    On the bottom is a 1970's era 870 with a 25" skeet barrel
