    Looks great, Frank/Sycamore Designs is awesome to deal with. He helped me out a ton when my mid bead broke and I needed it fixed/replaced by the next day.

    Of course, this is not a trap gun, but to help me get used to it I have thought about getting a full choke barrel and using it for singles and doubles

    Bring back some great memories. About 40 years ago, I undertook the project of refinishing all of our department shotguns. The guns were mounted on the lower front of the front seat of our police cars...no bucket seats then. The heater would blast them all winter and after a few years they looked like the one above and worse. It was an easy way to pick up a couple of hours of O.T. in a time when overtime was not available. Thanks for the memories.

    "heater would blast them all winter and after a few years they looked like the one above and worse."

    I was wondering how an 870 could end up looking like this!
