Old Gun Gets A New Lease On Life

Post by Tennessee Lead »

Since having shoulder surgery last month and still not able to lift my arm turkey season has been in limbo. That’s changed now thanks to Devin Hall at the Nashville Armory for drilling and tapping the receiver on my NEF .410 that I was given 30 years ago on my 10th birthday by my Dad and Mom.
I purchased a Sumtoy Customs mount and a Burris FF3 and paired them up on the .410
I’ve never carried anything but my faithful 835 but that’s not an option right now.
I’m excited to have the reason to shoot this old gun again. I carried it squirrel hunting a couple years when I was a kid but it’s been a safe queen since.
Now I have something my kids and wife can use as well.
It has a fixed full choke barrel and depending on the results I get with TSS I might have it cut and threaded for a choke tube in the off season.
I should be able to use my knee as a rest as always and control the gun with my right arm and if I need to swing left or right it’s light enough that I can hold and balance with 1 arm.

I've got one almost identical to it I got when I was younger. Hope it works for you so you can get out there this season!
