Picked up another shotgun

Postby Rajun cajun » Fri Aug 03, 2007 7:31 pm

One of my employees asked me if I was interested in a shotgun..."always" I said.

His daughters boyfreind wanted to sell a Remington semi Auto.

I looked at it, Model 58 Sportsman, 12 gauge, 2 3/4 or 3 inch.

Gun had absolutely no wear and the bluing was perfect!

I asked how much? He said $200, I wrote him a check.

Shot some skeet with it yesterday evening, 2 rounds, and even with a full choke, I shot the best rounds ever.

Gonna have it bored and tapped for Rem Chokes so I can get an inproved or skeet choke in it.

Looks like I got me a good semi auto really cheap!

Looked it up and I think they made it from 1956 to 1964 when they came out with the 1100.

My friend who owns the skeet range said it would probably fetch around $500 to $600 as it is so pristine.

Guns are always an investment!

gtk, sounds like my luck as well. If I'm looking for something, I'm usually the person that comes by just after it's sold.

I have it's "twin", at least that's what I've been told, the Remington 878 Automaster. I get a few parts put in it and I'll be using it to dove hunt with instead of my Benelli. 8)
