Stevens 225 to the range today
« on: July 28, 2021, 02:28:52 PM »
Did a caveman chamber check on the old beast, using a pair of previously shot hulls with the star crimps fully extended out.  They went fully into chambers with no resistance at all.  Took to range today and shot 4 stages of sporting clays using 1 oz 8 shot rem and 7/8 oz Fiocchi  target loads.  Old gun seems to work just fine.  Given I have a M47xxx serial number think it is rather late production gun.  Cleaning the damn thing must have helped as I had no clue what it was when I first got it and it is clearly marked 225 on bottom of receiver.  70 to 80 years neglect takes a while to overcome.  Clearly not an AZ gun with all the old surface rust.
