    Astra sxs

    Is there any value in an Astra sxs shotgun, before I cut it down to a coach gun for CAS. Has a look online but not much info around. Nice wood and a bit of engraving and case hardening on the reliever but not much bluing left on the barrel with rust coming through on the barrel.

    Cheers Tom

    two fifty on a good day...I used one with steel for 3-4 seasons and loved it...put a morgan adjustable pad on it and shot VERY well with it....
    no historic value,they were just a good reliable cheapish shotgun.

    If it's yours already and you want to get into cas it's the cheapest gun you could get. I did that to its Brazilian cousin, a boito and it was just fine. Sold it later and the new owner is as happy as
