It's an "A" with a 28" non ribbed barrel. It is one L-O-N-G sucker. Black synthetic stock and forearm, but I am really thinking of either selling it and buying a Maverick 88 Security 8 shot... or... save up anoth couple hundred and get a 20" barrell / 9 shot tube / pistol grip combo and be able to convert it for HD and clays. Thoughts? Smart remarks?
