    Mod. 520-30 Time Capsule

    Won't find one much better. But the final price is going to reflect that.

    Hello,

    Now that is what is called new in the box. Six digit serial number shotgun. I have been meaning to pick up a project shotgun and convert into a riot shot gun. Or just buy something like this. Joking out of my league.

    Someone took care with storage and cleaning / oiling over the years

    Thanks for sharing.

    Just flat new. You always wonder how this came to be. Anything military was taken out and assembled and then set in the rack. The boxes weren't kept for any reason, no use. This one had to have gone home with someone. That would have been VERY hard to achieve at that time. I'll be curious to see what this one finishes out at.
    Regards, Jim

    A beautiful example, for sure. Never quite understood the appeal, personally. The history of these firearms is what attracts me and this one has next to zero.
    Just my opinion..worth about what you all paid for it, haha.

    I can't possibly afford these guns in original condition let alone this condition. Guys just want the best possible example they can find, like many other things... I'll settle for an older worn model too, maybe a couple rebuilds and wars past it.

    Hi,
    Ok after 80 bids later sold for $15,101.99!!!!!!!!!



    Like I said out of my league for price. I did see one at a gun show years ago. Tried to buy it then but seller said he was looking for a value. Kick myself for not following up. Granted it was not new in box but was still a nice example.
