Maybe clean that one up,, shoot it while you get the money for the modern style shotty you want,, hell if you wanted something to strip and customize just do like orange and buy a cheap pawnshop gun and pick and pull using the receiver. I just remember getting rid,selling, or messing up a lot of things I wish I owned today still.
I will still have all parts just not on the gun and thay will stay the same just put a way for thay don't get broken I don't get rid of things. I still have the 10/22 that I got for xmass when I was 10

The problem is you can buy a gun that looks like that for $200. The gun in the photo looks like a stevens 320. They are $200 new in the box or less if you can find a used stevens. Most people keep stevens shotguns. They are a tremendous value.

Ha, cool then I'm sure you know how to take care of your stuff,, was thinking you were a really young dude for some reason, I know when I was young I was always moving around and losing stuff, or trying to "mod" it and messing it up. I'm just a year older than you,, and set in my ways,, as are you I'm sure.

Before you go plastic, just put an 18.5" barrel on with that wood furniture and check it out. It will look like you just swiped it from a police cruiser with the bubblegummachine on top.
