Our Assessment: This is a much better shotgun than most people consider it to be. People have always looked down on bolt action shotguns – and we are not sure why. This is a strong, reliable and safe shotgun. The gun can handle 3” shells and feeds from a removable magazine. Utility and function were obviously the goals with this shotgun, though the gun has a nice appearance as well – despite the cracked stock.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This shotgun can be transferred in California.
