I just picked up a very nice model 67E for a good price. I did a search on Google and found out it is just a basic shotgun. The gun has be restored and I would say close to excellent condition. Came with a case, a nice padded leather sling, scope and mounts which I paid $175. The guy blued the gun which is what he does for a living. Are these shotguns reliable? Did I do ok? I will post some pics up soon.

Thanks, James

If your going to pound out a lot of rounds it;s not going to last, if your using it for hunting and an occasional round of clays it will be fine. I think they are nice looking guns.

Why is that? I really do not know a lot about shotguns.

They just don't hold up to a lot of shooting, part will weaken/break after a while, compare part to part with a M500 or R870, you'll see what I mean.

They are a good reliable field grade gun. I doubt that the average shooter would ever have trouble with failures, given proper maintainence.

What parts should I be looking for? Anything I should specifically look at from a safety point of view?

Hopefully next week I will get a chance to shoot it. I will have pictures up soon.

The usual stuff springs, extractor claw, firing pin... but as I said, unless you pound a ton of rounds through it, you'll be happy. I had either a Savage or Noble that broke the firing pin, sometimes it would fire, some times not, can't remember which gun it was.

Yeah I just wanted to make sure nothing catastrophic would happen. No pics yet, my camera is being a pain. Time for a new camera!! LOL!
