Some photos of Grandpa's Shotgun in it's current state...

As a reminder...

Overall, Grandpa's Shotgun is in pretty good shape!

Missing Part #1 and #2 - Magazine, and magazine feed spring.

(Note the surface rust on the magazine receiver. This is the only noticeable surface rust on the gun.)

Missing part #3 - C-Lect choke sleeve.

You can see here where I stopped removing the original bluing... The choke plate is still over the original blue...

The area where the barrel is ported has been stripped, and is in a "raw steel" state.
