More kudos to Les Hovencamp: My '28 16 Ga NID is home, assembled, restocked w/LOP as I need it, and so far, completely functional. I ran a pair of empties thru it and both selecive ejectors work. A working mans' finish for a working man's gun. (at least I was when I bought it)
If I hadn't worried so much and put off mailing it, I'da had it back in time for dove season.
Pictures to follow soon.

When I sent this in, it was five pieces and a bag of parts. The new stuff is the stock and pad.
I considered rebluing the barrels and case coloring the action but passed even tho the prices are very reasonable. Especially considering The Man's reutation here on the forum.
I think he maybe getting my beater M-37 soon.

Les, Thanks again for your fine work and for popping up to tell me not to try to bend that part myself.

I've kind of wanted a NID. The closest I came was a Western Arms 20 Gauge. Nice but not a NID. My uncle insisted his uncle had an Ithaca SxS 20 gauge which he ended up with, but turned out not to be an Ithaca but a Stevens 311.
