Many, including me, consider the Remington 31 the finest walnut and steel pump shotgun ever made.
For year I scoured the Internet and gun shows for a 12 gauge Remington 31 factory riot configuration and the finish in original condition. Finaly found one for a very modest price because half the finish on the butt stock and flaked away and the remaining finish was in dreadful shape. I sanded and refinished the wood, leaving the metal as original.
This is one of my favorite guns of any type
