From what I've found out according to the serial number it was made in '61. It's set up for 2 and 3/4 inch shells. The seller even included the original owners manual with it, but apparently lost the plug to limit it to 3 rounds for hunting. The bore is spotless and the action feels very tight. The finish has a few nicks and is kind of damaged in a few small places on the right side of the butt stock.
I'm not much on shotguns, but the operation and design of this one just intrigued the heck out of me. That, and the tiger stripes, I like striped wood
