Our Assessment: This is a mix of two John Browning designs for what became the first commercially successful pump shotgun. Primarily aimed to sell to the Cowboy Action shooters, it is approved for use only in SASS Wild Bunch Matches as of January 14th, 2012. It has the advantage of a larger ejection port, which may improve times on single loading, and the both extractors have coil springs rather than flat springs. Due to the loud noise made when racking the slide, this shotgun makes a very intimidating home defense gun with a wide selection of ammunition available to choose from for this purpose. This gun appears to be almost new and truly is in Excellent Plus condition.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This gun is transferable in California.
