Well, it has several issues. First, when I got it the magazine extension was JB welded onto the magazine tube. At first I thought it was just stuck. Dad got on one end with a belt clamp and I got on the other and we actually sheared the aluminum tube off at the extension. I took some pliers and pulled the aluminum left from the tube off the inside of the extension. Looks like someone stripped the threads and then just glued the damn thing on. I ordered a new magazine tube no problem, but I can't find an extension at the length I want. I wondered if the one I had could be repaired.
The receiver shock absorber, all the o-rings, and anything else rubber has degraded and needs replaced.
Finally the magazine tube latch (I think that is what it's called) is all messed up.
I'd like to bring it up to mint condition, which would also mean refinishing as well. It's all a bit beyond my ability. I should have probably just saved up and bought one without issues, but this one was less than half of the retail of a normal SPAS 12. Very cool shotgun. I just need it fixed.
