Default Found a 410 in the attic

was rummaging around in the attic and found a little Japanese 410 single shot. I assume it was my stepfathers. Says "Shinkosha - Japan .410 3" chamber" on one side of the barrel and on the other it says " FIE - MIAMI, FLA. MODEL SB2B". Cant read the serial number. Looks like a piece of crap to me but what do I know! Anybody know anything about this little thing?

FIE was an importer of inexpensive firearms, mainly in the 1960s, later moved, out of business in the 90s. The Shinkoshas were inexpensive guns, somewhat a copy of the Winchester single shots, made for the K-marts of the country. Typically they sell for $50-$60 now.

Dusty, they were not BAD guns, just not expensive. Hang on to it until you find a 12 yr old that you can make happy for life. There should be one around there somewhere.

If the finish is gone, it would be a good learning project to refinish. For yourself or the twelve year old.
