I still borrow my friends Remington SBS. I have enjoyed shooting it more than my old OU.

Friend of mine has a cheap coach gun. I haven't shot it that much, but I guess it's cool and everything. I would love to have an old school coach gun with exposed hammers and double triggers. I so badly want to fire both barrels at once. :twisted:

hi. i'm a new member. i'm a gunsmith in canada. 3 years ago i aquired a stevens model 5100. it needed to be refinished and it had a tenite stock and forend(plastic). it was made in the early 1940's and the tenite was used because of a shortage of wood because of the war. i replace the stock and forend with walnut. stock came from numrich gun parts, west hurley n.y. and the forend came from the savage small arms shop in inverness fla. i reblued the metal and bored the right barrel out from full to skeet. this was all done after checking head space. the right barrel measured out to be a light modified. do i use it? i planned to sell it. but one saturday i went in to my property with it ,shot 3 ruffed grouse and 4 wood ducks out of my beaver pond. this 5100 is a 16 ga. federal do make steel shot in #2 and it is available up here in canada!!!. agun this old especially a double with thinner walls probably should'nt have a lot of steel shot through it. anyway it's not for sale any more. thanks pbl

hi exxit. i bought the gun for 119.00 dollars can. i've been offered 600.00 for it from a guy from quebec who hunts woodcock (timberdoodle) and ducks on the outing. should have sold , which was my original intention, when i rebuilt it, trouble is i LOVE it. i keep fixing up old guns to sell, but er, welllllllll, i don't sell them all. my wife says i have to , sell some before i get any more. don't tell her but i just ordered an old browning auto 5 on saturday. all the best pblsyd

U let it go?
Yes I did, and I regret every day without it. My first son was born and the family needed money ... so I sold it. Family comes before guns ... remember that.
