Purchased new in 1983. Original box and papers. 2,3/4” & 3”. 30” full-choke ribbed barrel that came with the gun. 26” Invector ribbed barrel with 3 choke tubes (IC/M/F) bought in 1996. Wood looks great; has some minor hunting wear but no gouges or scratches and no chips or flaking of the original clear-coat. Blueing is really nice; a bit of silvering showing through on the bottom of the receiver. No rust or pitting. A classic pump gun and one of the best; particularly useful to a southpaw. This BPS is in really fine shape and will hunt well for the next owner. The long barrel with fixed full choke could be of interest to a trap shooter. $900. PAL, secondary ID, and face-to-face transaction only. Thank you.

Thank you. I took very good care of it. It was my first shotgun; my late dad bought it for me when I was a teenager. I grew up in northern BC and at that time I was hunting mostly ducks and geese in grain fields. The BPS was perfect for that, with the long barrel and full-choke (there were no steel-shot laws back then). When I moved to Nova Scotia and turned my attention to grouse hunting, I got the shorter barrel with the interchangeable chokes for use in thick cover. I used it for a few more seasons. I stopped using it over 20 years ago, when I switched to over-unders and side-by-sides for grouse. Now I use a vintage Browning Double Automatic. (Best grouse gun ever.) Regards, Jack
