I was taught some thing many years ago. A very valuable lesson that has saved me thousand of dollars. "ASK" Do this on all things. You will be surprise at how many cave in. Also the shotgun in question does not look like much use, they can take a lot of use, and unless a avid hunter probably did not get much use. So many people buy shotguns and just use them as something to store away in a closet. They are great shotguns for the money.
