Look what followed me home from the range...

Long story short: A buddy of mine traded some Lake City Match .308 for this shotgun, then gave it to me. Couldn't find much about it by searching, and I was wondering if you guys could tell me more about it.

Anyway, for the more technical aspects of the gun. It's an Astra Ciclope, manufactured in Guernica, Spain. Serial number is 28XXX, so it seems a fairly early piece. It's a 12 guage, with a 30-inch barrel. The wood is flawless, as is the bluing. The reciever has a wonderful case-hardend color to it, and the action and trigger are very smooth and crisp, respectively. The gun looks like it came from the factory yesterday.

And now, a picture that doesn't do it justice:
