Default I won this by bid at the Ducks Unlimited dinner

The furniture on this is AA grade walnut
At first I thought it was plastic.
I'll probably never shoot it, unless "the manure hits the air circulating device"
I bid well below the $1700.00 it is listed at.
I purchased an enclosed shotgun case. I'm just going to hang it on the wall as a fine art piece.

You did good. I have seen so many people pay outrageous prices when they get stoked up at DU auctions. I would shoot it. The DU guns do not appreciate much in value, and a lot of people speak well of the Montefeltros. I probably wouldn't take it into a salt marsh, but I would try doves, pheasants, and targets for sure. I certainly like the look of the conventional barrel/receiver set up on those much better than the SBE type set up.

I don't know what I like better, the wood grain or the metal work.

Nice shottie!

Shottie is a gangbanger term for a murder weapon, not for a sporting shotgun.
