I bought this shotgun some time ago as NIB from an estate sale. As far as I can tell, that condition seems to bear up...no marks of any kind,barrel never installed, bolt face pristine, etc. I was going to keep it as a collector, but two scheduled African safaris in 08 and 09 force some financial reconsideration. This is an early Japan production Light Twelve, with a 28" barrel and fixed Modified choke. If you missed the boat on Auto-5 shotguns when production ceased, you can play "catch-up" with this gun.
I will ship direct as an individual to your FFL, with a copy of my photo DL and my NJ Firearms ID. If your state or dealer requires shipment FROM an FFL, costs may be higher.
