These came across my path yesterday. They were burried in the garage of a friend, whos family had owned the home for 3 generations. The double is a FOX patterned Stevens 311 H series 20 ga. The barrel lock was frozen. '42 Sante Fe 1903A3, need I say more?!! The barrel is very dark, stock has a crack in the reciever tang area. I'm happy!!NOT!!! I've just been educated on the potential for failure and that it's a poser mil-surp. Addios Sante Fe. PAX

Santa Fe sounded familiar, did some digging through my "pile"and found that santa fe, national ordnance, and golden state were name brands of commercial made non mil. spec. receivers for the o3a3's and were rated as being as good as the late production of Universal M1 carbines without GI parts. Unreliable junk. But that scatter cannon sure looks like a find to me.

commercial 'military' rifles never spoke to me , even commercialy modified "real military" rifles dont interest me
