Bobby, I'd take the NID. I have 3 nice little Crescents I shoot, one more than the other 2. I shot a worn, but tight Nitro 410 for years, along with a Western Long Range. Both excellent shooters. I ended up trading both a year ago towards an Ithaca Flues 4E 20 . I'd trade my collection for a little Parker 410 splinter!

SKEET-ER for me.

What grade is the NID?

Field.
A couple of buggered screws.
A couple others don't seem to be properly seated.
It concerns me a little.
Enlarge the 3rd pic. Forward floorplate screw looks a little askew??

Maybe tightened 1/2 turn too much or maybe 1/2 turn too loose?

Same with the trigger guard screw?

I’d still choose the Skeeter.

In the condition it's in,
Why do you suppose someone's digging into it?

I think they pulled the wood and refinished, or maybe repaired a crack or two. Looks recheckered, I think it should be flat top style on the field grades.
