    This is my bedside companion,a $100 shotgun I picked up awhile back. It looked like a real turd,but seemed to function well.

    Just wanted to show off the new parkerizing job done by Velzey!
    I highly recommend him for ANY gun smithing work.

    Heat shield is one of the IMA repros. Not the best quality, but hey..
    Sling and bayonet are USGI.

    Anyone else have anything similar?
    I'd love to see them!

    I will admit it really did look bad! But man it looks awesome now!

    Excellent choice for a bedside companion...;)

    This old '97 guards the inside of my house safe.
    Numrich heat shield and a Wild Tom Bodie 6 rd shell follower, but a true original WW1 bayonet.

    There is just something about an old Trench Shotgun! Love the Win97 with the pig sticker! Mine is almost the same! Rides the bed side for bumps in the night!

    I once tried to slam fire all 6 rds of 00 buck from the hip, but stopped after the 4th rd.
    It's a lot harder to hold onto then you think.

    I don't think they made the 520 in to a trench/roit. I know 520a and a 620 were

    I have a 1942 520-30

    Mmmmmmmmm, Trench Guns. Nice guns guys!

    Gotta love the trenchies.

    Love the 520 and especially the double hump guns. Alas, I don't have any Stevens shotguns yet.

    Do have a 1969 vintage Ithaca M37 Trench Gun (on top - 1940 vintage clone clone on the bottom has gone down the road).

    Some day I'll get into Winchester and Stevens shotguns.

    The idea of a trench gun interests me, however i understand they're somewhat prohibitively expensive for what they are.

    I actually carried/used the M37 "trenchie" while guarding the USAREUR CINC "back in the day".


    These days I only have the modern analoge versions that I made out of M500's.

    At Ft. Ord we still had Winchester model 12's and some 870's for use during The Invasion of Panama.
    Those came in handy a time or two then.
