With David's permission...It is time to find a new caretaker for this vet bringback 1928-A1. It was sold by the vet to his local sheriff in the 1960's, and the sheriff registered it during the 1968 amnesty. I have a copy of that registration. It was then sold to another local collector and then to me.
The receiver was painted black during its life in the military, and the trigger frame (AO-98905) does not match the receiver (S-482304), which was common with military guns. The most interesting part of the gun is the jury-rigged foregrip mount, which has been staked into place. Apparently, the armorer who repaired the gun did not have a replacement foregrip mount, so he fashioned his own. Because the mount was not as strong as the original, the armorer added the foregrip reinforcing band that was created to address the weakness of the riveted foregrip mounts. The barrel has obviously been removed and replaced, so the index line does not line up. The barrel is made by Stevens.
Asking $25,000 for the gun. It is on a Form 4 in Ohio.
Please PM me if you have questions or want additional pictures.
