    Well, I went my own judgment, traded in a POS Derringer threw down $100 and here it is:

    Sorry for the sideways pic. Took in a hurry.

    Yeah, now if I can figure it out I'll be alright. First recoil op SG so I've been doing some reading, might break it down this weekend.
    No work 'till Monday!!!

    That is a sweet shotgun and the wood is beautiful. Just put a good recoil pad on it, recoil operated shotguns can kick pretty good.

    Of course, a range range report is expected. :D

    Very cool. The 720 is a licensed copy of the Browning A5, but is essentially an exact copy of a Rem Mod11. I have a spare 720 bbl for my M11.

    I would re-spring it. You can also get the schematic online showing how to position the friction ring for high based or low based shooting. It does matter.

    You should get several lifetimes of use out of her. They are very easy to detail strip and clean, too. It will probably have a ton of unburned powder and such in the action. Have fun cleaning and learning the gun.

    Thanks CA and good call on the recoil pad. I'll probably take it out next weekend and see if I can break any targets. I'll let you know how it turns out.
