    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.
