Like the thread title says, I picked up a model 28 12ga pump action today!:D It looks like it was built in the early 20th century, but the bluing is still excellent and it checked out with my local gunsmith.


However, he recommended that I NOT disassemble it due to its internal complexity. Since it's my first shotgun, and I don't have a manual for it, I'm heeding his advice.


Does anybody have any information on the Model 28, especially internal diagrams?

Here you go http://www.e-gunparts.com/productschem.asp?chrMasterModel=082Zz28. According to the Blue Book: Model 28 Hammerless made 1913-22, Model 28TS Trap Gun made 1915, Model 28T(same as 28TS but with fancy wood, checkering and better finish) made in 1915. Value on these range from $140.00 @ 60% grade to $1,320.00 @ 100% grade.

Looks helpful. Thanks! I'm really in need of a disassembly guide though.

Some were take down shotguns. On the end of the mag tube is a little latch. Depressing the latch and pulling it forward will free the barrel to unscrew. Easy to clean that way no need to disasemble. :)

Yep, I figured out that much. Really easy to take down and clean. I do really want to completely dissemble it and give it a through cleaning though.
