    He was from a farming family and had a big transfer fuel tank in the bed of the truck. Nasty wreck.

    $800 is a quite nice price for that shotgun. $1k, maybe $1,100 is about what Iíd expect to get for it if I had one.

    A fine shotgun like this one wonít really depreciate with non-abusive use.

    Looks to be in quite nice shape. The State of Texas stamp is interesting as well.
    I'd say it's worth somewhere around $70 or so - maybe more to a Texan.

    Hmm. I think so. Seems I read a forum post recently talking about how they've added the Shopping Cart functionality. Was that on this forum?

    Would love to see some pics of this.
    Before spending a BUNCH of money returning it to original condition, you may want to see what it's worth as is.

    Welcome to the forum!
    I just picked up one of these not that far off from yours. Mine is SN 1285339.

    Yours is also indeed a recorded sporter. Looks like it sold 4-15-29.
    Mine sold 10-23-28. ...

    A Krag with its side gate, a Berthier with its enbloc, perhaps a Trapdoor Springfield with its, well, trapdoor.

    I typically prefer walnut but the birch on this one looks quite nice!

    Weren't the original waffle mags scrapped due to rust issues? I.e., weren't they steel?

    This finally came in.
    Some auction companies refuse to do in house shipping. A third party must then pick it up, eventually, and do the shipping.

    I appreciate the encouragement along the way! It's definitely a skill I will find useful again down the road.

    Yup, I'm definitely happy with this. If I picked this revolver up as it is now, I wouldn't even look twice at the backstrap. It came out great and really blends in with the rest...

    I think I'm pretty much there!
    It's a little light but I think this will match the level of wear elsewhere on the revolver.

    As a young guy who has done that...I'll agree they're crap. Took the old one with me to the range and changed it out after the first few short strokes. Total waste of time.

    The main difference was I pretty much ignored the instructions, haha.

    That may be something to try as well.
