    I have an old Chinese 870 clone. I used the furniture on another gun and all I have to go with it is some beat up wood. Last time I took it apart to clean it, I can't get it back together. It's in terrible condition and not worth fixing. How do I get rid of it? I don't want it to be a statistic that some gun buy back uses to claim they were successful.

    Well, with your blessing and a signed agreement that I'd never use it in a buyback or sell it, I'd love to take it off your hands and use it to teach my son and daughter about firearm maintenance and assembly.
    Some of the best mechanical learning I ever had was making old stuff I trashpicked work. Bicycles, lawn mowers, cars.
    [edit to add] my first 22 became unsafe and would blow powder back into the shooter's face. I bent then scrapped the bolt and laid a nasty mig bead in the chamber and breech so the gun was completely unusable, then tossed it in the scrap.

    If you're going to scrap it anyway, save it for the next gun buyback and at least get something for it! :)

    When I've had unneeded spare parts, broken guns, beaters, and the rest, I've just dumped them on Numrich for some cash. Information on how to do so here. Cheers.

    Found a place where it will go to good use and not cost me anything. :)

    Just drop it off at Oregon City PD. They’ll run it over to Benchmade and have it chopped up. Easy Peasy....:s0155:

    A big thanks to @Smitty79, it's at my house. :)
    I put it back together and the pump action is so stout, my son cannot rack it (like the draw on an 80 lb bow). He and I are going to strip it down, make it manageable and then turn it into something fun.
    He was surprised at how simple the design is.
