I've got y'all all beat: my M31L 20 gauge unaltered and in very nice condition cost me $100.00 out the door at a small gunshop. Plain barrel--I did have Skeet's open the full choke. Nice gun and vastly better than anything on the market today. I consider the 31's to be superior to the Model 12's (I know, them's fighting words)!

I sold a minty 31TC a couple years ago for $750.00. Had paid $300 for it from a feller who officed in the same building as me. Made the deal while riding up our elevator.

I was thinking that is pretty spendy as I bought one probably even a bit nicer for $325 out the door at a local pawn shop. Checked my records and my buy was before the crash of 2008!!

No. Remington's answer to the Model 12 Heavy Duck was the "Long Range" boring.

Until the Model 870 3-inch Magnum was introduced, the only gun Remington offered for the 12-gauge 3-inch Magnum shell was a scant few of their Parkers --

I'm sure the percent of Model 17s ordered with the option of a solid rib is an unknowable number. How many people would spring for an $8 option on a $48 gun in the 1920s and 30s?

My father railed against two things in American shotgunnery, Winchester Model 24s and bottom dumper pump guns. For over 70 years I heeded him, but a couple of years ago a Model 17A "Standard" Grade with a 28-inch solid rib improved cylinder barrel for $200 out the door at my local pawn shop couldn't be resisted. The stock had been cut and a piece added back and a recoil pad.

Fits me well and has been a lot of fun for $200. My gun weighs a fraction of an ounce under six pounds.
