Traded for one of these today.

In decent shape, and I feel like I got a good deal on it.

Anyone have experience with the gun or have any idea of where I could purchase additional Magazines at?

Plan on shooting it tomorrow and I'll give you guys a review.

This should be a literal do it all gun. You can hunt anything from Squirrels to Hogs with this bad boy.......

Thoughts?

C'mon pics or it didn't happen you should know better. Other then that I think a buddy of mine has the same shotgun. He loves the hell out of it so I'm sure you'll enjoy yours.

12 gauge.

And I was going to take pictures of it, but I haven't decided if I'm going to try to restore it or just leave it as is.

The previous owner spray camo'd the entire thing.lol

Restore it or re paint it please!

Neat shotgun, I've never owned a bolt shotgun so that is pretty cool.

Any idea on where I would start or the process I should go though to make it looks as original as possible?

It might be painted for a reason. The paint might be filling small pits in the barrel and receiver, and the stock might look like it got drug behind a truck.

If you wanted to take the paint off, paint thinner, steel wool and rubber gloves.

I'd refinish it. I'd go with the finest steel wool and paint thinner for the metal, take it down to the factory bluing or as close as you can get, then repaint it the black Alumahyde.

For the wood, well this is just me, but I'd go balls out on the thing: start with 60 grit sandpaper til you're down to bare wood (or close), the go to 100, then 150, then 220 to get it nice and smooth. Stain with Minwax of your choice (I like Red Mahogany, personally), then polyurethane to protect it.

That'll be a damn nice looking gun after you do that. At present...not so much.

(And you know, if you'd said you did that paintjob yourself, we'd all be like, "Cool DIY job, looks great!" But yeah it's kind of horrible.)

I never knew they existed! seriously, I've never seen one or even heard anyone talk about them before. call me a noob if you want, haha. Anyway, it looks like it would be extremely fun to shoot. How many rounds does the mag hold?

Yea, the guy who I traded with called it a Goose gun and therefore it's 2+1 capacity.

I really want to redo the barrel and stock, I just really don't want to fuck it up.lol

aye, I was thinking it probably held 3,

If I was you Sundance, I would first remove the paint with some mineral spirits and a rag, just to see what kind of wood and metal there is underneath, before going overkill on it. The stock doesn't seem to have many dings from the pics. But if you want to go further, you should get pretty good results by using one of those green scotchgard scrubber pads and some 00(0) steel wool. If you do come across some bad dings you can use a clothes iron to steam them out, just wet the area first then place the hot iron on top for a few seconds. I've refinished a couple sks stocks and a K98 stock using these methods and they all turned out great. Good luck.
