Here is an Boito Over/Under (O/U) 12 Gauge shotgun, which was made in Brazil and sold through K Mart department stores. The gun utilizes a boxlock action and has non-selective double-triggers, with an extractor and a tang mounted safety. This 12 gauge O/U has 28" vent-rib barrels with a front bead and mid-bead sight. The barrels are chambered for 2-3/4" shells. The top barrel is choked FULL with the bottom barrel being choked MOD. Both bores are clean and shiny and in very good condition.
Blue on the barrels and receiver is 85-90% with a minor amount of scroll engraving on the sides and bottom of the receiver. Some of the blue is just starting to wear from the edges of the vent-rib and there are some scratches on the right-side and bottom of the receiver. There's also a small bit of scuffing and a spot where the blue is starting to wear on the right-side of the receiver (see photos). The scroll engraving is in good condition with crisp and clear edges.
This O/U shotgun has a checkered hardwood forearm and stock with a nice gloss finish. There are some handling marks and a few very small divots in forearm, but no cracks. The stock also has some handling marks with a few small divots. There are some chips in the bottom of the stock at the toe and a small chip in the left-side of the stock, at the bottom corner of the receiver, however there are no cracks in the stock (see photos). The gun has a plastic grip cap and buttplate. Both are in good condition, however most of the black finish is worn from the bottom of the grip cap. L.O.P. is 15" from the center-rear of the buttplate to the front trigger.
The tang lever is right of center and the action locks tight. Overall the gun appears to be in excellent condition mechanically and good to very good in appearance. Serial #A14527. STK. #16652.
If you're looking for a utilitarian shotgun that you won't mind taking to the field, this Boito would be a good choice or if you’re looking for an economy O/U 12 Gauge, this one is for you!
