Steel reciever models were made from 1949- 1958 Alloy recievers were made made between 1950 and 1966. Good condition worth about $175. However these are hard to find parts for these days. It wasn't made to shoot competition courses either. Just food for thought. Hope this helps?

Are you looking to get this instead of the Mossberg 500, or adding it to your collection? If your looking for one gun, and a starter gun this isn't what you want. Stick with the 500 for what you want.

That gun is not very versatile. It would make a nice bunny/pheasant gun or maybe a skeet gun if you didn't shoot it too much and it would cycle light loads.

Without doing research on it I would guess it will limit you to what you can shoot as well. It will most likely be a 2 3/4 inch gun or a 3 inch magnum, not both. So you would be limited to what shells you could shoot out of it. And it may not cycle light loads if you decide to target shoot with it. As a matter of fact it might be pretty finicky period.

Where as the 500 or 870 will shoot anything you put it in it from 2 3/4 inch light target loads to the heaviest 3 inch magnum turkey loads.

If you want an auto later on down the road there are plenty of really good used ones in the 300 dollar range if you look around hard enough.

I wouldn't buy a gun sight unseen over the net either. I want to sell a few but am having problems deciding how I want to go about it. I would prefer to sell them face to face to someone as opposed to shipping them to someone.
