Couple of years ago when I bought a house I found a J.C. Higgins 20ga bolt action. I pulled it apart and inspected it, cleaned, and oiled it put it away.
I just pulled it out of the safe, and cleaned it again, inspected it again, and it looks to be very clean and not used much. Anyway I did a search and see conflicting info so I have some questions could some one correct me if I am wrong, I am thinking about taking it to the range for trap tomorrow.
1) Sears recalled the gun, but it seems to be the 12Ga only. Due to bolt stop/ screw failure seems to be the consensus. Is the general consensus that this gun is safe to shoot?
2) Beyond a general cleaning (brake down and clean all major components) and inspection of the bore is there any thing else I should look for.
3) Any thing that I might have missed? I am going to do some more research tonight online.
4) My club only allows steel shot is that ok in a gun of this age?
Thanks in advance to all for any input.
