I know one of ya'll is dying for the restoration project on this gun. That has to be the most unique one of a kind rib I have ever seen.

What a shame. Bubba must have had a tube of JB Weld in his garage.

The truly frightening thing about this gun to me isn't the rib repair....its the fact that you just know whoever slapped that JB weld on it, then proceeded to take it hunting and shooting.

I would be afraid to hold that gun much less shoot it.

I really hope the shop took it on consignment and didn't actually give someone money for it.

Looks like a beaver gnawed on it for awhile. Shame that someone actually did this to a (at one time) nice gun......

Just a thought. Someone got a LOT of wonderful hunting memories etched into his brain from the service this shotgun provided. In my opinion they aren't made to sit in a cabinet 95% of the time like mine do. :oops: I mostly hunt pheasants and couldn't quite bring myself to abuse a gun that badly.

I'm wondering what ran over it. Truck, tractor, ATV. Maybe all three.

If I saw that in a local shop I would actually buy it after a good inspection and some dickering. I do not see any dents in the barrels. Especially if the chokes were Briley. But from the internet? No Way. The "lever is to the right" still so it has to be good, right? I have a couple of Superposed stock blanks so I could tape one to the gun and file the whole thing away as a "project". If I have room in the storage shed with all the other "projects".
