Our Assessment: This is one of the few over-under shotgun models ever produced by Remington. The design is essentially the same as the Krieghoff Model 32 and the fit and finish isn’t far off from a Krieghoff, either. This shotgun is in about Very Good condition with 87% of its finish remaining, good bores, and strong mechanics. While it has some wear, this may just be the perfect field over under, and you wont need to worry about it getting a scuff or two. This would make a fine gun to use as a range workhorse breaking clays or out in the field dropping birds. Please see our photos and good luck!
