Overall Condition: This gun retains about 80% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows some edge wear and general losses from handling and use. There is some beginning surface rust to the receiver flats and a ding or two on the rib. The Screw heads are serviceable, though showing some wear. The markings are clear. Overall, this gun rates in about very good condition.

Our Assessment: Here is an old Sears pump action shotgun, certainly less expensive than the Remington’s and Winchester’s, but just as fun to shoot.
