I would say either a Mossberg or a Remington. One thing is for sure, there are a lot of aftermarket items for these two makes, and you can buy one gun, but have a total of three barrels for quite a range of functions. JMHO.Can anyone help me out with this shotgun? Im thinking of buying one, and what is a good price range for it? Is there any other shotgun that you recommend? thanks!! (A friend of mine wants to sell me his for $100)!! thanks
My S&W Eastfield 916-A is flawless. I've had it over 40 years and shot everything through it. Accurate and trustworthy IF you take care of it!In 1977 (i.e., 40 years ago), I received a S&W Enfield Model 916-A as a Xmas holiday gift. A local gunsmith made several requested adjustments, including a shortening of the barrel length, the addition of a modified choke, an improved fixed front sight and the fitting of a custom-made pistol grip as an occasional alternative to my firing the shotgun while utilizing the standard buttstock. I cannot provide an accurate estimate as to the aggregate numbers of times that I have fired it during the past 40 years; however, I reckon in addition to my utilizing standard buckshot loads, I have fired about 55 3-inch 00-buck magnum shells. The bottom line, at no time have I experienced any malfunctions, parts breakage or ever a need to bring it to a gunsmith for subsequent repairs. Regards to all.
