Re: LCS WILDFOWL SXS in Specialty Grade
The stepped cut-out where the ejector (extractor) rod is coming out is correct for an ejector gun. Pull the shell extractor out and see if there is a hole on each side which would be the guide hole for the original split ejectors.
Either this person did not know this or else he is trying to pass it off. Definitely not worth 9k even if it had the ejectors.
I have seen more Wildfowl guns that did not have 3" chambers but I don't remember ever seeing a Longrange that didn't.
Not sure if the Records recorded 3" chambers but on this gun the stamping looks real.
