Stock Configuration & Condition: The stock(s) is/are a plastic wood grain configuration with an aftermarket butt pad that was fitted by drilling a hole in the stock and mounting it with a bolt from the hardware store. The fit of these stocks is as you would expect, and the pieces show numerous surface marks and scratches.
Type of Finish: Blue
Finish Originality: Original
Bore Condition: The bore is primarily smooth. There some very mild erosion which may clean nicely.
Overall Condition: This gun retains about 60% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish is gone due to use and rough storage. There is also a slight coat of rust on the entire gun that would probably clean up with some elbow grease. The Screw heads are serviceable. The markings are clear. Overall, this gun rates in about fair condition.
Mechanics: The action seams to work but we have not fired this gun.
Box & Accessories: None
Our Assessment: Here is that inexpensive first shotgun for the grandkids or that 16 Ga. lover out there. These guns are popular as boat guns because of the external hammer and the power of a shotgun.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: Yes, this gun can be transferred in CA
