Re: Advice, suggestions on reciever
Your gun would have been a Grade 2E and when new retailed for $90 plus another $25 for the optional Hunter One-trigger. Your gun would never have any collector's value to speak of, but would make an excellent hunting/shooting gun. If you exercise patience with your search, it is possible to find a set of ejector barrels and forend; and if the gun were mine that is the approach I'd take. It wouldn't be easy to find a set of Crown steel trademarked barrels as would be original to the gun, but a set of OOE or Field Grade ejector barrels should work equally well; and finding a set of barrels with the original ejector forend would be ideal. Best of luck!
