Surprised no one has mentioned AYA..those are some good old shotguns and are high quality for a good price.
Especially if you could find one of the “Matadors”. Manufactured by AyA for Sears beginning back in the mid 50’s.
Good, solid quality guns with an affordable price.

The only issue I’ve ever heard of people having with them was a very few of them had trigger issues. Other than that, VERY solid reliable guns. You can still find them for <$1000 in good shape

I’ve got my grandfathers old lefever nitro special. I’d love to have a 20 and 410. The 12’s and 20’s aren’t too pricey comparatively to the other side by sides but 410’s will make a man dig deep in his pockets.
I have a lefever nitro special 22 guage that my granddaddy traded a deer ham for back in the 50s . Best shooting deer gun I ever handled. It no longer shoots and I have taken it to two gunsmith's. It's something to do with the firing pins. I would pay good money for it to be fixed but I don't have a knowledgeable smith near me .

Here’s my grandfather with the lefever. When he passed away, all the sons and grandsons got to pick a gun in order of age. I chose the lefever because I have the pics. . I think it’s pretty cool to have the gun in the pictures I have framed. My dad is on the left in the pic with my grandfather and two boys. I also have the A5 my dad is holding.

There were several “store brand” sxs made by Stevens. I have a Western Field from Montgomery Ward that’s for all intents and purposes a Stevens 311A
