    I've got an 870 express in left hand configuration. Really like it. Took my first small game with a 16. Nice shotgun. I'm jealous!

    I also have a 870 16 gauge about that vintage. They are nice shotguns.

    Nice I think I would have brought that home too. I need a 16ga in my life.

    Actually I'm stupid and the actual price was 385. But it was still worth it. The bluing or park has a nice aged look to it. There's a small gash on the guard but that's character to me. The next day after I bought it I snatched up a
    4 boxes of Remington long range express shells for 25 bucks. The boxes got wet but the shells were. Tons of fun to shoot two tubes full of it.

    I got one in the early sixties.

    Good luck with it!

    Nice find! Good price- close to what I paid for this:

    Model 12 1960.jpg
    1960 Model 12; this one was a safe queen, a collector brought this and about 5 other older shotguns in to a local shop. It has years of gummy WD-40 in it, I plan on meticulously cleaning it up for a winter project. (that and the Savage 755 I got recently.) I am also going to replace the hard-as-a-rock recoil pad, CSMC has new repros. It will be my Vintage Shoot gun for Trap, and might find it's way to the pheasant field, too.

    I wish this would have been a 16ga. Model 12, but it wouldn't have been $300 then.

    Sixteen is an unappreciated gauge; how much of a challenge is ammo (under ordinary circumstances)?
    Nice catch; enjoy.
