Newbie here so pls bear with me.
My brother in law gave me this shotgun and said it was sitting in a garage for about 20 yrs.
the stock was unfinished (maybe wore off over the yrs?) but had nice grain to it.
Barrel has surface rust and some of the metal parts that were blued needed some attention.
i started working on it to refinish without even knowing if it even works (not the smartest i know)
Its coming out pretty nice so far. still have a couple of coats of oil left for the stock.
its missing the magazine which i still have to find online to purchase. any help there would be appreciated.
I went to marlin website and got the address to send away for the owners manual.
In the meantime when i put it back together should i be on the safe side and bring it to my local gunshop to check it out beofre firing since it has been sitting for such a long time?
any recommendations on slugs to buy to test out at the range?
thanks in advance!
