Savage model 720 trainer
Here is a Savage Model 720 that was used to train air gunners in WWII. I've had this for quite a while now. The previous owner was an older fellow who used it to shoot trap and decorated the stock as seen in the pics..he was a good friend and has passed on several years ago. It is all original and falls in the number range for those used in WWII..69400-88500. This one's receiver has number 76638 and the barrel has number 77258 which is normal for the trainers at that time. I don't shoot trap but have shot it. I was thinking about redoing or replacing the stock but decided to keep it as is with the inlay in the stock. Nice old piece of Military Memorabilia.

Fine old shotguns, for sure. Never owned that one, but did have the Remington version in the Model 11 and of course, an A5 or two. Also, a Remington 11-48, so the old shuffle action guns are familiar to me.
