Hey yall. I haven't posted in awhile, but I'm posting now because I've come across a problem of choice. There are 2 very reasonably prices shotgun that I want. Of course I can only afford one, because life's unfair, right? The first shotgun I'm looking at is a Remington 870 Super Magnum. I've been DYING to shoot and own something with a 3.5" chamber for a long time. So much raw power. I'm sure plenty of you can sympathize with me. The price on the Remington 870 is only $240, before bargaining! It seems to function well and the finish is still in pretty great condition. The second shotgun I'm thinking about is a Winchester 1897. There's a gunshop in my area that seems to be a retirement home for unloved Winchester shotguns. Alot of these poor fellas have nearly ZERO finish left on them. I could pickup one of the worst-looking ones for probably $200. If I go this route, I'm thinking about fully refinishing the gun using some boat floor finish on the wood and then doing a rust bluing for all the metal. And don't bother trying to make me get a Winchester Model 12. I just got rid of one, because I just wanted something else. So what do yall think?
