Our Assessment: This shotgun was named the “Perfect Repeater” at its introduction in 1912, and was the first truly successful internal hammer pump-action shotgun ever produced. It has an extremely smooth action, and only went out of production because it was too expensive to manufacture compared to Remington’s 870. This shotgun is very clean and would make a perfect gift for a young hunter.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This C&R shotgun can be transferred in California.
