New to the forum and to this al 48 I just picked up at a pawn shop for 170! I can't wait to go try it out, it's a 1960, 20 gauge and is in great condition for a field gun.

Glad to be here!

are you familiar with the recoil system? They are a fine field gun, but it's easy to damage the works if not properly used.

Yeah I'm pretty familiar with it, I apprenticed as a gunsmith under dad for 20 years, and I'm only 31 now. Thanks for your reply, and looking out for possible newbs lol
