Here's a well used but mechanically sound Nitro Special made in 1929. 16 gauge, 2 9/16" chambers, 28" barrels choked F/M. Just about all the case colors have been worn off the frame - it almost looks like it is chrome plated. But the gun still locks up tight and the bores shine like new. This one has a little better stock than usually seen on Nitro Specials - it looks like the stock from an Ithaca Flues with a grip cap.

Not a collector's showpiece, but the type of gun you might have seen in your grandfather's gun cabinet years ago. It looks like it went hunting a lot but was well cared for. The Nitro Specials weren't fancy or expensive, but they were tough.

1927 12ga, 30", F&M. Nice burled walnut stock. Not bad at all for 87 years since leaving the factory.
