Bill I'm not familiar Catamount?
There's a bunch of nice old shotguns i've not heard about,this is a very interesting shotgun thread seeing everyone's favorite scatterguns
Growing up I remember the Ithicas,SKBs,Winchesters,Brownings,Mossbergs,Remin gtons,Francis,and Steven/Savage all very good manufactured shotguns.
Nothing against Winchesters which was my first semi auto briefly. The 1400 Winchester 20 ga. had a problem from the factory?,it would eject a live shotshell out the bottom of the receiver from the magazine tube after firing the shell in the chamber? Leaving the chamber empty for the second shot,and when 9 years old watching your live shotgun shells ejecting out of the gun into the water from the Duck boat? Can be Traumatic for a young duck hunter!
So we took the Winchester 1400 back to Wally World,gave that back to them and picked a Remington 1100 20 Ga. which always worked.
The shotgun I would like to find which was actually my very first shotgun was a Stevens model 94 410 single shot with plastic or tenite plastic stock and forend,from what little information I could find? They were built at the end of WWII and into the early 50's when the military was using so much walnut at that time period, Stevens produced the tenite plastic stocks for the 410 ga. model 94.
Yep lots of cool old scatterguns out there
