light surface pitting or real deep. As a rule the old singles had a very thick barrel at the breech end and then thinned out. If it's just surface it should be ok. A brass brush on a drill should clean her up from breech end. If real deep get it checked out first.
I got my first with the one that was rechambered to .410. It was a 44 When you take your son out 1. Be safe 2. Camera, pictures will be treasured by you forever. Ken U

I always suggest that if you have a gun that is questionable, have a gun smith take a look at it. It won't cost you much, and the peace of mind that goes with it is priceless. Good luck with the gun, and the hunting!

Welcome, both of you, to the forum!

I agree with Carver.

And I also doubt there is anything to worry about.
