    Been converting Grampa's old shotgun into a streetsweeper. Finally got most of the parts in.Still waiting on a flashlight holder and I need to put the bead back on.Ought to be good for squirrel hunting and repelling any unwanted late night visitors.

    I'm just wondering,Does that gun have any family significance to you? I would never mess with a family heriloom of mine that way.

    No this is just a 70's remington 1100 that I carried and abused in my youth. The blueing is half gone and there were a multitude of scratches on the wood.I have a 1927 BROWNING AUTO 5 that my grandmother gave my grandfather on their 1st wedding anniversary. I have spent several hundred dollars at a gunsmith having it reblued and the wood refinished. I am certain it looks better than new and shoots very well.When my wife's grandmother died we found a Remington Model 4 22LR and a 1897 Winchester 12 guage pump loaded under her bed. Both are in pretty rough condition.It might take a few years but I'm sure both will end up being restored.These guns not only have a family connection but are all designed by my hero and the greatest gun designer of all time John Moses Browning.This was just another shotgun laying around that I wasn't going to use...I already have a 12 gauge Beretta A390 and a Benelli M2.
