    Why don't I have a custom title by now?!

  1. My dad picked up a bolt-action 12 gauge for $25, it's a little rough, but I am gonna fixed it up to gain some skills in practical gunsmithing. It's a J.C. Higgins, sold by Sears and Roebuck anywhere from 1940-something to the mid-1950s. Pretty neat gun.















    The end of the barrel was cut off crudely (it's 21 inches though, 18 is the min. length) so I have to fix that by grinding it relatively straight, filing it then giving it a good buffing. The jerk that did it (the guy my dad bought it off of) got metal shavings in the barrel and action, so I need to give it a really good cleaning and oiling (which I was gonna do anyway, but that makes it more urgent). I am going to silver solder a bead so it has a front sight bead again. I am going to install a new recoil pad because that one is red, cracked and from the 1950s. So yeah, it'll be a fun experience, for sure, but once I am done, I'll end up with a solid work-horse.

      While you're at it, make it look like the Doom shotgun.

      Does it accept magnum (76mm long) cartridges or just 70mm standard ones? Magazine capacity?

      2 3/4" (70mm) only, dunno the capacity yet as I am not about to load an old gun in my house :-P Judging by the length of the tube though, I assume it holds 5 in the tube and 1 in the chamber.
