Ted:

If ancient-looking is the desired outcome, this gun has it in spades. I wouldn't re-do any old pump gun with an eye towards making money. The ones I have done so-far have been to makes them serviceable (operate smoothly and not stain your hands from the rust). I'll likely just re-blue this spare barrel and use it for a while.

It seems that I now have more guns than the time to use them all. It guess I need to work on that!

Off 17s just a bit. Any advice on Remington Model 10s. Looking at one with a full length rib 30 inch full. Nice except the buttstock has been home raised high comb. Looks bad fits nice. Be a fun club trap gun if it works, no need to feed.

Seen 'em, never used one. Those are old guns. I think the production numbers were higher than model 17s, maybe parts wouldn't be an issue.
Lloyd, you should invest in a little better set of screwdrivers, my Mom has a set that look just like the one in your picture, hers wouldn't get anywhere near a gun I own!!

Best,
Ted

The carrier mechanism is complex and ejector has tendency to break. Parts are made of unobtainium therefore broken ones have to be repaired and made. Don't walk run away and thank me later.

Ted: Not sure which one you're looking at, the big screwdriver is for the bolt through the stock. Not pretty but effective. I do have a hollow-ground set that I use for my guns. I don't like buggered screws either.

Boats: The Model 10 is the only non-Browning pump shotgun that had moderate commercial success from that era. It was a John D. Pederson design that had to work-around all of the Browning pump-gun patents that existed at that time. It has nice lines but....like many of Pederson's designs, it is a Rube Goldberg-like device with flippers and strikers (as opposed to shell-lifters and firing pins) and nobody is left alive that can fix it if it breaks. As mentioned above, parts for it simply don't exist. I've been eyeing one for the past couple of years that I could get for nearly nothing. The take-down is neat and I like the geometry of the gun, but there are simply many other options out there that will serve you better.

I'm always late to these discussions! Argh!







The best way to supply parts is to buy a beater, though I have gotten extra parts and barrels off of e-bay as well. I have a new project, well a project in waiting, a 1930 B grade with 28" solid rib barrel and uncut stock (a rare find on these guns) I've probably owned a dozen over the years, down to three now.



There have been some nice ones made, for sure.

Mr. Frazier:

I was wondering when you would show up. My second barrel is noticeably lighter than the original one, by almost 3 ounces. What does a 28-inch solid rib barrel weigh?

Also, I always assumed that my stock with the Remington plate was uncut at 14-inches? Was I correct?

Lloyd, I'll weigh mine tomorrow and report.
