You can find these bolt less shotguns all the time at the local gun shows and yard sales. They usually bring 25 to 35 dollars in new condition, why anyone would buy one, is beyond my understanding, I have seen numerous posing over the years from people bragging that they brought a shotgun for only 30 dollars and where can they find a bolt for it.
Davejohn, not dumping on you, it is just that your chances of finding a bolt is pretty remote, and even if you did, would you really want to use it?? I wouldn't.
I like the look of the gun and I collect old firearms. Most likely I will never shoot the gun. I just wish to have the complete package. I would like to refinish it completely but, with out the bolt whats the point? Like i said before
I got it for free. And I like it. No reason other than that.
and Rjay this thread was to find of how to find this bolt. Nt to disscus my intentions with it. Not dumping on you or anything.
