Might be me and my Luddite approach but I cannot find any of the lots mentioned?

Have you sent a carrier pigeon with your request?

No - it died of boredom! I'm slowly giving up and for the money that one would have to pay (including delivery as it would be an 800 mile round trip) it's never worth it - Hundreds of good guns out there which do not need a week soaked in rust remover!

Have you called or emailed them? I have always found them to be most helpful in all matters so quite surprised you have had to wait so long

Thanks for that, not sure how I missed it. It's nice but I'm not sure it would scratch that exposed hammer itch. 

The 1897 is fun but feels crude compared to the model 12. 

Plenty of cheap steel here. I've never had a Remington 1100 but it was the first gun I had a clay shooting lesson with some 30 years ago. These old steel receiver guns look very cheap!

I missed one a while back that was on gunstar or guntrader, emailed you he bloke but never heard anything back and then next time I checked it was gone. 

I do like a bit of simple but well done engineering. Got a few feelers out but I'm not holding my breath. Was going to treat myself to a nice SxS for my 30th but think I'm going to put the money to the 97 instead.

Its just a matter of time before the right gun turns up.. patience is the key. 

I love going though the Holts auctions. So many crazy designs. Why is it that I find that 16 bore Darne so desirable?!

Im hoping to have my FAC sorted by then so if a sec1 comes up it's not a problem. No massive rush to get one, like you said, the right gun 👌

I do too, normally through the cartridges first then the single barreled guns. Great way to spend and afternoon 😂

…. or as we say in Norfolk 'Presactly' - to be more precise! :D

Considering the opening question,  my advice would be that if the gun concerned was free and if Holts offered to deliver it to you for nothing - I'd politely decline the generosity!

The rusty guns are apparently from a dealer whose premises  was flooded. I’d not touch one unless it was £200 otherwise by the time you’ve re blacked it (£200) , had it stripped and cleaned (£175) and the wood sorted (£150) 𝙔𝙤𝙪𝙧 not that far off a minty new one .

I had a Winchester 1897 with a twenty inch barrel. Ex-RIC. Back when these things, pump action shotguns with barrels under twenty-four inches, were s1 and not s5. Before Thatcher decided we weren't to be trusted. It was quite an interesting toy.
