i'm thinking about getting one, tell me about them pics if you got them, thanks
Cheap double made like a pair of 37s welded together and selling for way more than they should. I've had a few and, though clunky, they are solid. Don't overpay and don't look for rapid appreciation
My Uncle had one. I thought it must be great, close to 21, you know.
I learned better, they were definitely the economy model.
The best description of a 24 I have ever read. The Marlin Model 90 of SxS's.
Think Stevens 311 with Winchester written on it instead.
Only the Stevens is better and usually less money.
I have one in 16 gauge, and have used it for several years. What others have said about them being "clunky" is true, when speaking of the 12 gauge version. The 16's and 20's are built on a smaller frame, and handle better then the heavier 12's do. Mine has made an excellent squirrel killer, accounted for several bunnies, and has claimed the lives of many crows, coons, and possums as well. It patterns well (it's choked mod. and full) and barrels seem to be regulated as it shoots where you point it. Because of it's utilitarian nature, it is my favorite walkabout gun. I don't worry about dropping or scratching it, nor do I worry that it might not fire. Personally, I wouldn't pay over $450 for one in good to excellent shape. I gave that for mine, and it is a first year, four digit number gun in immaculate shape. The only thing you have to watch with them is, the barrels and chambers aren't chrome lined so will rust quickly if shot and left dirty or not cleaned properly. Don't let that stop you though. The 24 is a much better quality gun than the Stevens 311 IMHO, so buy that dude and don't look back.
