    I found this deal today for $50 and went and found my brother and got him to buy it.

    The guy selling it says that it was in the family cabin for decades and many people used it and it always worked.

    When we got back to my brother's house, I got to work with a tooth brush and motor oil and cleaned the dirt out of the action.

    I already own some Remington Sportsman shotguns, and I have shot 24/25 in trap with one like this. Mine is made in 1940 and I got it 10 years ago for $67 at a show.

    Anyway, my brother's new shot gun needs some stock work.

    3 months ago my brother got a Rem 10 shotgun for $20 that I fixed with motor oil and then made a video. The Rem sportsman he got today is ready to shoot, but he should glue a crack in the fore end and put a new recoil pad on it.

    Here is the video of shotgun for $20 3 months ago

    Here is the pic of the $50 shotgun today:
