It's spring, time for more Trenchgun Tomfoolery

So I won a cheap Stevens/Coast to Coast pump gun (267/77) here: gunbroker

Pics as soon as I get it. Bluing is uneven so I will be refinishing it along with the wood.

Heat shield/Bayonet lug from Numrich Gun Parts.
Bayonet from Sarco
Sling swivel from Numrich
Sling from my spares (I have a couple M1903 slings)

Should be a fun project and I'll end up with a servicable trench gun at less than half the cost of a military shotgun.
In a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich the chicken and cow are involved while the pig is committed.

Yeah, man, 'twould be cool. I thought of getting a new unfinished set then molesting it with pine tar. In line with other projects, so still open.

I am so glad I never bought a shotty with a sub-22" barrel. :D

Came close a few times. I should be cutting that 28" down by mid-May.

That Maverick 88 is probably my favorite pump 12 GA to shoot. And it was cheap, too.
It is an unfortunate human failing that a full pocketbook often groans more loudly than an empty stomach.

Hack-saw in the lean-to and spray some rattle-can BBQ paint. Fashion the heat-shield from a cookie-pan with tin-snips and a drill. You can be in-n-out for under $250 if creative!
