I was given a shotgun the other day from a friend.
I will be restoring it, should be a fun project.
Winchester Model 37 16 Gauge Shot gun.
Date: unknown, they did not use serial numbers so its hard to get an exact date. Produced between 1936-1964.
The stock has been cracked for years. He told me he taped it up a long time ago. When I pulled the tape off the stock fell into a few pieces. They are clean breaks, so It shouldn't be too difficult to put back together.
I almost have it completely stripped except the hammer and trigger, I don't have a punch small enough to get the pins out. I plan on having it professionally Re-Blued and re finishing the original stock and for end myself.
I havent shot the nitro mag yet dave bit I did get my 3.5" shells in today. Got my #6 turkey shot and 00 buck.
As far as recent gun mods... I added a laser to the forward rail on the shotgun and set it to about 15 yards.
Also I replace the grips on the sp101 with houge grips. Its gives alot better feel.
Went to York gun show over the weekend. I picked up a few AR mags A little bit of ammo, some USGI parts for the M14, extractor, trigger and hammer pins. Good show, they had some great prices on firearms.
Hey guys I just ordered a 6" hanging gong target made of hight strength ar500f steel. The guy is only charging me $75 total for the target, stand , and shipping. Its made of 1/2" thick sheet. He said it has no problems taking even the highest power rifle hits. If yall want to look up his new fb page its max tac targets. Ill let yall know when it comes in. He said about 3 weeks.
Just picked up a new gas lock for the Socom. I changed the rear sight to a USGI calibrated in yards and now Its shooting about 6" high at 100 yards with the rear sight bottomed out. The new gas lock will bring up the front sight post, get it on target, allow me to use standard front sights and its threaded which allows me to change muzzle devices / flash hiders.
