Overall Condition: This shotgun retains about 95% of its metal finish. The edges of the rib have a couple of light marks.

The left side of the receiver has an incomplete line of wear just behind the forend iron. The right side of the receiver has what appears to be finish loss from a chemical of some kind along the edge of the shoulder with a drip-line across the marking on the side of the receiver and another down to the bottom just behind the forend iron, this drip line continues across the front edge behind the forend iron on the bottom of the receiver. The trigger guard/plate assembly shows light thinning at edges with a few very small, scattered marks. The pin heads show finish loss but no tool marks or peening. The markings are clear. Overall, this shotgun rates in about Fine condition.
Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The barrels lock up to the receiver with no play. The ejectors throw shells energetically. We have not fired this shotgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None.
Our Assessment: This is an exceptionally nice shotgun and 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 Fine condition with 95% of its original finish remaining, good bores, strong mechanics and some good-looking wood. With its 30″ barrels choked Full over IM and selective triggers, this should make one heck of a trap gun. Please see our photos and good luck!
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This shotgun can be transferred in California.
