Sights / Optics: This shotgun is mounted with a white bead in a base that is screwed into the ventilated rib, which meets at an extension slotted onto the receiver; the top is serrated and matted for glare reduction.

Overall Condition: This shotgun retains about 96% of its metal finish. The muzzle has thinning, there are a few tiny scuffs on the underside of the barrel, top and under the receiver. Nominal operational wear is seen on the action arm. Overall, the metal to metal fit, finish and polishing are top notch. The screw heads are sharp. The markings are raised and crisp. Overall, this shotgun rates in about Excellent condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We have not fired this Shotgun. As with all previously owned firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: Factory box with end label and foam are included. There is some oil staining to the Styrofoam. There are a few places where the barrel has banged around, it still fits tight, but the foam is breaking apart.

Our Assessment: From “Designed by William Roemer and introduced in 1933, the Model 42 Slide Action Shotgun was chambered exclusively for .410 gauge in 3? and 2-1/2? shells. The Model 42 was produced from 1933 thru 1963, with a production of about 160,000. Referred to as “Everybody’s Sweetheart”, variations include: Standard Grade, Deluxe Grade, Trap Grade, Skeet Grade and Pigeon Grade. Various chokes, barrel lengths, plain barrels, solid ribs, ventilated ribs, engraving patterns, and checkering patterns were offered.” This is a beautiful High Grade Limited Edition entry by Miroku, who arguably contends with most any brand out there, so highly esteemed, Browning’s company also had their High Grade classics remade by the company in the 1990’s. This shotgun does not look to have seen much use and is definitely eye catching. Only 850 were made in 1993 and unless you were lucky enough to get one then, another in this condition will probably not be seen for quite a while. Whether for hitting clays or illuminating your safe, it will not disappoint.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This Shotgun can be transferred/sold in California.
