Very nice!   thumb1  My Dad had one of those that he hunted with regularly until his passing.  I think he purchased it either in the very late '50's or very early '60's.  I hunted with it several times with it myself.  My younger brother now has it in his possession.

What length barrel is that? Mine A-5 is a '61 and is 28 inches.
I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse......

Leave the gun take the cannoli.

My Dad's is a 30" full choke, 2 3/4 chamber.  Great duck and goose gun.  Also worked great for squirrels and rabbits also, but much better for squirrels than rabbits.
