PostSubject: A "new" shotgun   May 31st 2015, 10:35 am

Yesterday I picked up an old Savage 220 single shot, shotgun. The finish looks old and faded but the bore is pristine and the trigger cocking mech. and trigger pull feel excellent. Lock up is solid as well. I didn't really need it but no one bidded so why not? I'll make it a fun project and refinish the stock and possibly touch up the bluing on the frame and barrels. I'll get some pictures later in the day.

What gauge is it?
Those old shotguns are real serviceable. That's your grouse gun if you want to get more than one every 5 minutes.

I had an old Stevens 20 ga. single-shot that I bought new for $29 back in the '60s. I gave it to my son but he never uses it. I bought my brother a Kassnar 20 ga. single-shot at K-Mart for $16 for his 14th birthday. He killed ducks, grouse, pheasants, and rabbits with it until he joined the Navy. He still has it and can still hit most everything with it.

I have a New England 20 gauge single shot that I've had for 15 years. For certain types of shooting I prefer it over the pump or semiauto. It's lighter and quicker handling and if you carry a shell like a cigarette you can get two shots off. Plus it cost less than $100 so if it get scratches or such it can be cleaned up and not lose any value.
