Yup. Stuff like this always comes along when I can least afford it. Very nice shotgun.

Somebody buy this before I buy a second one and sell some stuff. Very seldom does a chance to buy a piece of history like this come along. Especially with the price of surplus combat shotguns going the way they have. This was USED in a war.

Thing needs a speed feed stock, a side saddle, a vented barrel shroud, and a pistol grip forend, as well drilled and tapped for a scope mount for a big BSA red dot.

I can do all that for the purchaser at an additional cost. I would also recommend screw in choke tubes and a breacher muzzle brake.

I would like to get things started but have a couple of questions first:

1. Is the red buttpad standard issue?

2. What is going on with the stock and forend, has the wood been stripped or sanded?

Neither are deal breakers, I would just like to know.

I am in at $2300.

1. Standard issue FN buttpad.

2. Not sure. I am not the original owner. I did wipe the fore end down with alcohol to get most of the grime off of it. Haven't touched the stock.
