Hey all. I joined this forum to ask this question so this is my first post.
My dad has a 28 gauge, single-shot, H&R shotgun. Back in the '60s some yahoo (my grandfather) replaced the shoulder stock with a pistol grip. He was, however, smart enough to file a Form 1 (Firearms) to get it registered as an NFA firearm to him. Years later it was legally transferred to my father.
Here's my question. What was this shotgun before it was modified?
It has a 16 inch barrel. Some of you might want to call it a Handy Gun, but, from my understanding, those were only made with 8 inch, 12 1/4 inch or 18 inch barrels.
The serial # is 571**
This really would have been a question for Mr. Goforth but I understand he's no longer with us. I think it's great that you all are following in his footsteps and I thank you for your time.
