Howdy!

I've got my grandmothers old shotgun. It's made by Sears, Roebuck & Co., serial number 25441, model 102.25, pump action, 20 gauge.

Some research has told me it was made by Stevens under the model number 520-A. They apparently Stevens made 2 versions, the humpback and the straight back, with the latter being the newer version, which mine appears to be.

I think it's shootable, but I've just started to clean it up and inspect it. I know my grandmother used to shoot it, but it hasn't been shot in at least 50 years and has sat and rusted in my mom and dad's old closet.

I'm looking for any information I can find on it. Besides the rust, it appears to be in pretty good shape. The action works, as does the elevator though the slide release is a bit stiff. Trigger and safety do what they're supposed to do.

If anyone has more information on this shotgun, I'd appreciate it if you could post it here. I'll do the same if/when I find out more about it.

Thanks in advance!

pretty basic gun. no real collectors value. stiff kick.
clean it well and use factory ammo and avoid magnum loads.
fire away.
