Was in the local gunshop about a month ago and he had a 12 ga. double barrel with rabbit ears but the gun looked new. Now, I`m a sucker for shotgun doubles and lever action rifles. I picke it up and man, it has some weight to it. The price was right so it came home with me. I have shot it a couple of times and it handles well. Here are the markings on the gun. It is made in China by the way. Here goes; Left side of barrel, Zhongzhou Machine Works China. Right side of barrel; CAI Georgia, VT. And on same side down on the breech it has;JW-2000. Then below that is serial # 0515xxx. Anybody knows who imports this gun? I was told Charter Arms but do not see their name anywhere. Any info is appreciated.

Century Arms International is located in Georgia Vermont if that is any help.

Century International Arms

Perhaps the C.A.I. Georgia, Vt. is the importer stamp or marking. Just a thought.
Yep, that's what is marked on my Romanian WASR10 which is imported by Century Arms International.

Great ---- a BIG Thank you for the info. I love the gun community. I took it out again this past weekend and ran some more rounds through it. Shot 2 3/4" dbl. 00 buck at about 12-13 feet. Has a good pattern at that range but has that wicked short gun kick. LOL I normally stay away from anything made in China if I can but I`m a sucker for a rabbitt eared double. Seems fairly well made and I like the way it shoots. Again, thanks gang.

At a gun show last summer I traded two cheapy 9mm pistols (cost $125 ea) for one of those Chinese Coach Guns and $100 in cash. I later sold the Shotgun for $325 on armslist. Not a bad deal. The shotgun was, indeed, a 'solid' chunk of steel and wood. I let fly with both barrels one time...won't ever do that aagain!! But it sure made some noise and destroyed a frozen water jug !!

As I understand it that is a Norinco by any other name. I know who imports them into Canada , Marstar

It is a solid chunk of metal for sure. That thing is heavy. I do like the way it shoots but would not want to lug it around all day. I guess that why it has sling swivels on it. And no, both barrels at the same time is not an option for this old fool. LOL I keep it loaded with #4 buck in 2 3/4 " and it fits wonderfully by the headboard.
