To be honest with you Steve, for the right price it looks like it would make a dandy hunting gun with a round or two of clays thrown in.
First and foremost it's a 20ga.,looks to be in decent mechanical shape and did I mention it's a 20? Nuff said.

The barrels would have to be checked to make sure they were not hot blued, but there is a good chance they aren't. In that case it would make a good shooter. Nitre bluing of the frame does no damage. I am 90% sure the frame was nitre blued. I have done it in the past on worn Trojans where the persons I was doing it for wanted their guns to look new. If carefully done the proper way, it looks ok. As the gun wears, it begins to look more like case colors, provided it is done so dark blue is not not the dominant color.

One more point, the colors wear at about the same as case colors. It is not a durable finish.

Looks very similar to the torch colored receivers I saw at Lefever Arms in Lee Center,NY back in the mid 1970's.

When I first saw it I thought it had been blued then rubbed out to give it an aged look. I would look for weep holes in the under rib as evidence on hot blued barrels.

Frank Lefever and Sons used the torch method?? I had a PH 12 case colored at Lefevers in the early seventies, and, while not the most attractive job, it didn't appear to have been torch colored.
