So, my father passed away a few weeks back. Very unexpected and unfortunate. I've relocated out of the PNW for a year, but intend to come back, so I'm still posting firearm questions and what not here Anyways, among the things he left behind I can inherit with no bickering from family members, is a several thousand rounds of shotgun shells, and a JC Higgins Model 583.20 bolt action shotgun. I did some preliminary research. They were recalled by sears for a reason, that upon research, was pretty absurd. There is a screw that holds the bolt in and prevents it from coming loose. The bolt would back out, and when you cycled the bolt (manually of course) it is possible to pull the bolt all the way out and hit yourself with the bolt. Nothing dangerous about firing it or anything though it seems. Anyways, it surely hasn't been used in at least 20 years. It seems to cycle fine though, although I haven't put any rounds in it. Everything appears intact and it seems mechanically sound. Any thoughts from anyone knowledgeable and/or experienced with JC Higgins Model 583 shotguns? I'd just buy a nice shotgun for shooting trap, but not having a NH drivers license makes person to person sales illegal of course, and buying new seems a waste since I already own a few shotguns back in OR.
