Description:

This is an excellent example of a World War II U.S. Army contract Stevens Model 520-30 shotgun in riot gun configuration. The left of the barrel has the three-line address along with the two-line gauge markings. Choke gauges at cylinder. The left of the receiver is stamped "MOD. 520-30", and it has the correct "P/Ordnance Bomb" stampings on the left breech of the barrel and left front edge of the receiver. It has a blue finish with smooth forearm and pistol grip stock with a black plastic buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 90% plus original blue finish overall showing light cycling wear, with sharp edges and markings in the metal. Wood is also excellent with some light handling marks, a pressure line on the left of the pistol grip, and defined edges. Mechanically excellent. This exceptional example of a U.S. Stevens Model 520-30 riot shotgun would make a fine addition to any U.S. Military collection!
