    A little backstory. My dad has had this shotgun for years, but hasn't really known what brand it is and when it was made. We do know that it is a 12 gauge though. Anyone have any ideas from these pictures? Thank you!

    Hello this is my first post on this forum. I have a wall hanging 1889 side by side 12 gauge. As I said it a wall hanger but has been past down to me from my father and from his father and his father. This was knocked off of its hanger and broke the stock before I got it. I will never sell it...

    I have a Rem870 with a Magpul MOE for-end installed. The for-end assembly appears to be rubbing against the mag tube and is leaving scratches. They don't appear to be into the metal but just the finish. Is this normal? Or is there something definitely wrong with the adjustment of the for-end...

    I recently received a New England Firearms 32 Gauge Special. Can anyone help me determine value, as I don't have much use for this gun? From a legal standpoint, this gun is considered a dart projector, meaning I don't have to be licensed to ship it or anything, so if anybody knows a potential...

    I posted about trying to find a semi-automatic shotgun to fit my small stature(5' 2", 110lbs) and I've realized I need to up my budget. I've found both of these guns and wanted to know what you all thought of the guns, experience with the guns, or if you think these are all wrong and I need look...

    Let me start out by saying I do not want a child's shotgun. I'm wanting a semi-automatic shotgun to bird hunt/duck hunt with. I'm willing to spend up to about $600 or $700, but it doesn't have to cost that much. I'm 5' 2" and 110 pounds. My rifle is a Ruger compact .308 and it fits like a glove...

    I would love to know more about the history of this gun that hung on my dad's mantel. It is old and decorative. Between the barrels it says "London Laminated Steel Wire" and on the sides it has "W M Carlow". I included some photos if anyone can help me.

    I have a Remington 1100 with a 30 inch barrel. I've been looking to find a magazine extension that would fit flush with the end of the barrel. If I've done the measurements correct the length of the extension that is needed would be 18.5". I've been searching for sometime now, I'd appreciate...

    Hey there everyone! This is my first post, and not the last. I finally decided I needed help with a few of my guns. Whether it be age, price, blah blah blah. I was cleaning a bunch of my grandpas old guns, which I inherited last year when my grandma passed as well. Among them, is this single...

    I've been looking around at different shotguns recently. Probably not going to buy one until after Christmas but if like to find one that I like. Some fellows on here helped me decide on a bolt action rifle, Ruger American Rimfire, which I like a lot so I figured I'd ask you guys again. I was...

    I've been in the market for a good pump action 12 gauge for a while and I've narrowed my choices to 3. I will be buying the field version of each of the guns because I prefer a wooden stock. My first selection is a the winchester SXP I like the low recoil and that the pump slides back when you...

    Hello all! I am looking at a 12 gauge Winchester 400 Ranger. It is priced at $129, and has no rust in or on the barrel. The wood and finish is in great condition with minimal scratches. The only real problem is the chamber is just a bit dirty, but that's an easy fix. To me it seems like a decent...
  16. General Gun Discussion
    I've seen people on Youtube converting flares into firearms to shoot various calibers and gauges, so far I've seen that metal surplus ones are more suited for shooting than the modern plastic flares. I want to convert a flare gun that shoot 20 gauge birdshot shells, is this a good idea?

    With reference to original post: http://www.nationalgunforum.com/new-members-introduction/41952-hi.html#post357800 Hi all! I own a double barrel shotgun inherited from my father. All I know about the gun is that it's 12 bore and made in Belgium (found it engraved on the barrel, almost...

    Hello, I would like to get an idea for the age and value of an old 12 gauge double barrel shotgun I have. It looks like it is a WM Moore & Co. But I have been reading there is a lot of companies that copied a popular gun of that time period. I took it to a friend who is good with guns and he...

    Just traded an old laptop of mine that I wasn't using and a printer to this Harrington & Richardson Topper Model 158, 12 gauge shotgun. It's a lot like my other, regular Topper model in that it takes both 2 3/4" and 3" magnum shells. It's a single shot, break action. This one has definitely...

    I am looking for a Mossberg Model 195 detachable magazine. It is the older bolt action 12-gauge. I found them at Halvin Sales but I am looking to see if anyone knows another place or someone selling them. Best everyone.
