Default Old hand me down.

Anyone ever hear of this old shotgun I was just given by my father. It's a double barrel, side by side 12ga, 2 3/4" Sears and Roebuck Eastern Arms shotgun with a PLASTIC stock. I don't imagine it's worth anything but curious if you know something about it, thanks.

Probably manufactured by either J. Stevens Arms, Iver Johnson, Meriden Firearms, or Harrington & Richardson (H&R). The stock is Tenite, not plastic, I have seen em go for around 300 bucks, how good of shape is it in ? Lets see some pictures...........If it was a hand-me-down just hang on to it & pass it on down. Is it shootable ?

Picture?

Yes, wife #1 had one in 20 ga. They were a late 1950's idea.

Its family. Use it! There is absolutely nothing wrong with this gun, it just needs someone to carry it afield.

I have never seen a double barrel with a plastic stock. I had a Sears single shot 410 with a plastic stock about 150 years ago when I was a small grasshopper. Crescent made a lot of the old shotguns. The side plate on yours is like my Knickerboker. I don't shot anything but #8 shot in mine.
Hang on to it because there's not many around. Thanks for sharing the photo.
