Got my bid going in Monday for the 20 bore. Got to be worth a punt got one already so worth it for parts alone.

Best of luck - We are off to the beach - Social distancing of course!

Thanks Gordon.  On the beach plenty of sun, very few people but a cold wind which is playing havoc with my mankini

I'd reckon stored in a gunslip and possibly either deceased estate or from a police property store being sold by the lawful executors of said estate.

Yes, it's not an image that easily comes to mind but it does help social distancing except for the very curious!

I have PM'd you

Too many? All with damaged stocks? Some are like the proverbial anchor!

hello, i see now, some are quite rusty on barrels, you may get the rust off but could leave some serious pitting, they are sold as working shotguns so the internal bores should be ok,  

do you have a link to the page?

Ok found it now thanks, like you say its odd that all the rusty ones are Beretta and all on the first page, nothing rusty on the other pages that I could see.

most of the rust seems to-be on the outside of the barrels, almost like water splash marks left to go rusty.

Salt water is my thought but why are all the stocks damaged? Most have the same damage as well?

Rumour has it that an old browning user did it, he hates Beretta's!:whistling:

If there are a fair few,they could have come from someone running corporate entertainment days ,they tend to get knocked about and sometimes things happen that overtake people quickly .Just a thought.

Yep, it does sound odd, wonder if they are from a building/gunshop fire, stocks could have got damaged being raked out after the fire, I wonder if Holts know how they got damaged?

The pictures appear to me to show dark "stains" on the stocks possibly as old'un suggested.

I had a look at a few of them before lock down they will be golden as long as you replace the barrels and woodwork and can get the actions clean inside.

If I recall correctly at least one joiner said similar about the Ship of Theseus. 

Or Gilbert and Sullivan? A Paradox?

Is that similar to Trigger's broom to the rest of us?

Sounds to me as if Trigger’s broom would be worth more!

Very good analogy!

But contacting Holts is the only way to know properly
