You might get more help if you post this in the Shotgun section of the forum. This is a really low traffic area.

Also, pics are a must. Make sure to take plenty of good, detailed pics of any marks/writing on the gun. They will help us find out more about it.

Finally, welcome to FTF. Be sure to drop by the introduction section and introduce yourself.

Happy shooting.

I would need a pic of the barrel stamp and the serial #.
