Around here, I also recommend Chucks. Now before you start shooting it, check the shell size. I've got a few older 12's that take 2.5 inch not 2.75 inch shells.

I know this is an old thread, but I never followed up.

I took my shotgun into Chucks and Jack was very helpful. My gun is not really valuable from a monetary standpoint, but he said it was in extremely good shape for that model. Most are apparently found in the corner of a barn somewhere and unusable. Having said that, Jack felt like it was quite serviceable and suggested I could use it with no problem.

So, I took it on a company outing where we entertained some brokers. Everyone really enjoyed shooting clays with it. Not so much kick due to its significant weight (and the lighter shells Jack sold me).

When it came time for the hunt, I left it in the truck, thinking a gun with a safety might be a little smarter.

Not bad for a 100 year old

Glad you were able to enjoy it.

I've got an old J Stevens bolt action single shot 20 guage from 1897 that's been handed down. I was always told that they started out being sold at Sears in their bargain bins.

I live approximately 2 miles from Georgia Gun and drive past it at least twice a week. I thought that was all part of the church adjacent to it. I will have to stop by and check it out.
