Default Cowboy Action Shooting Shotgun

Guys,

I have been toying with getting into Cowboy Action Shooting for a while now and with Glass’s encouragement I have been acquiring the necessary guns and equipment and clothing. I’ve got my single action revolvers now and went with 38/357 as the brass is more readily available for reloading than 45 LC. Glass is making my leather gear, pistol belt, holsters, and Shotgun bandoleer and will probably make most of my clothes also. I only have my rifle and shotgun left to buy and I’ll be ready to go. I found a reproduction of the John Browning 1887 lever action shotgun but it is made by a company I’m not familiar with. Does anyone know anything about a company called IAC imports? I’ve Googled it and found that it is a division of Interstate Arms Corp out of Massachusetts but other than that I don’t know anything at all about the company.

Here is a picture of the shotgun I'm looking at. What do you think?

What little I know about them seems to indicate they have poor customer service.

Not really, but if you google them, you'll get links to some forums where there's discussions on them.

Well, I posted it in another thread that I found a good friend who had this shotgun that I wanted and we (actually Glass) worked a deal. His shotgun did not have the leather wrap on the lever action so I asked Glass to do her magic and she not only made the lever wrap but she made the rough out stock cover I wanted. All I have left to do is get the beads I want for the fringe. I wanted an Indian kind of look to go with my Cowboy Action Shooting persona.

Here she is:
