I just picked up a 12ga pump out of the want ads for $125 for Home Defense. Great condition for its age, well taken care of, no rust and the mechanism works like butter.

It is a Sears JC Higgins Model 200 - searched the part # and it was made in 1952 (by High Standard). Looks like a 26". Want to cut it down to 18". Would I be committing some type of shotgun mortal sin by doing this? Would the ghost of Ted Williams haunt my house forever if I did it? Thanks a bunch.

have you ever heard ''they dont make them like they used to''?
get a mossy and use that old one for birds.
it will still be around long after you die
most of those old guns are dang near bombproof

depends. there ARE collectors of those kinds of guns (i used to be one) that will pay above book prices for them. id keep it as is, and find another more common shotgun to cut up. those arent getting any newer and the rarity factor of some models with store names stamped on them is only getting higher. ive bought 870s and 500s for less than you paid for that.
