    I just wanted to post a photo of my project stevens pump, and test out a new photo hosting site at the same time.
    I got it at a flemarket as a barrel and frame in rough shape.
    After years of doing my best to restore guns, I decided to go for the
    "Mad Max" look.

    John M. Browning is rolling over in his grave.
    He designed those shotguns and they are built like a tank. I've owned several over the years.

    Is that a 520?
    "John M. Browning is rolling over in his grave."
    I agree

    Mr. Browning was a great man, and a genius when it comes to gun design.
    He designed guns for sport and war, they were just tools to do a job.
    I think he would be very happy, that many of the guns he designed over a
    hundred years ago would still be loved and in use today.
    Most of his guns were designed and sold to another firm to produce them.
    He then moved on, always looking for the next innovation in gun design.
    No I do not think Mr. Browning would be rolling over in his grave,
    on the contrary I think he would laughing and be happy that his design
    was still being used.
    Change is not always good for everyone, but in this case I am happy to take
    a empty receiver with a bulged barrel, and make a usable and fun gun.
    I think Mr Browning would be very happy.

    I like it, most people wouldn't have paid good money for it before you started.

    Keep it up, maybe you'll start a trend, rat rod guns...post apocalyptic,

    From Wikapedia

    Stevens introduced the streamlined Model 620 in 1927.[5] The Model 620 was internally similar to the Model 520 and was produced until 1939[6] when it was replaced by the Model 620A which ended production in 1955.[7] This shotgun is a hammerless, pump action, take-down design with a tubular magazine which holds 5 shells. All models can also be slam fired: the shotgun has no trigger disconnector and shells can be fired one after the other simply by working the slide if the trigger is held down.
