This listing is for the exact shotgun in the photos. Here is a specimen of Smith & Wesson’s original model 1000 shotgun, introduced in 1973. The 1000 gave the venerable 1100 Remington a run for its money for a decade, until the Benelli and Beretta semi autos took over as chief competitor. Here was a good looking, reliable, light weight semi automatic field shotgun with dealer incentive behind it. Manufacturer was Howa Machinery, Ltd., of Nagoya, Japan. Importer was Smith & Wesson of Springfield, MA. S&W’s number on this variant was 34250. Type is gas operated semi-automatic shotgun. Construction is steel barrel, bolt, magazine, and internal parts, built into a light weight alloy receiver and stocked with American Walnut. Barrel is 2 3/4 inch only 12 gauge, blued steel 30 inch with 12 post .315 wide serrated Ventilated Rib. Choke is .680 diameter Full, NOT for use with steel shot or slugs. Sights are stainless steel bead front and brass mid bead, to give a figure 8 sighting picture. Magazine tube is white chrome steel, that holds 4 rounds of 2 3/4 inch shells with the adapter removed, and a person is well advised to watch a how-to video to remove the adapter, total loaded capacity of 4 + 1. Receiver is semi-gloss, machine engraved black anodized alloy, with chrome plated steel bolt, operating handle, and shell carrier. Trigger assembly is alloy, with right hand safety behind the .200 smooth faced chrome trigger. Trigger pull on this specimen gauges at 3 pounds with approximately 1/4 inch of travel. Forend and buttstock are cut checkered walnut, high gloss finish. Buttstock is standard 1 1/2 inch drop at the comb, 2 1/2 inch at the butt, with a 1 inch right hand cant. This is not a southpaw friendly shotgun. Length of pull is 14 1/8 inches from the trigger face to the end of the buttplate. Overall length is 50 3/8 inches; weight empty is 7 pounds, with center of gravity at the breech face. The 1000 struck a happy medium between the light weight of the 48AL Franchi with its sharp felt recoil, and the weightier Remington 1100 of its day, but with more felt recoil than the Remington. This specimen comes to us from the estate of its original owner, a local rabbit hunter. From its FB08000 range serial number, it was manufactured in 1979 or 1980. Surface detractions are moderate, some edge whitening on the metal and edge scouring on the forend, and on the buttstock surface. We rate it as Very Good, 80 to 85 percent vicinity, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright and clean. From the moderate amount of shell contact streaking to the carrier, and from our knowledge of its late owner, we estimate this shotgun was fired fewer than 400 times, no rounds at all for a Smith & Wesson 1000. Replacement pricing on similarly finished 1100 or Browning Shotguns is upwards of $1,000 apiece. We’re offering the 30 Full Smith & Wesson 1000 in the photos, however, for only $ 359.00. Any ammunition and personnel in our photos are Not included. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> $20 flat fee lower 48 states; $60 Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, UPS Ground or USPS Priority with full insurance coverage.
