This is my first post in the shotgun Forums, so im wondering if i can grt some info on this particular firearm.

My friend is buying this Shotgun second hand and the only information he has is this.

Under and Over
E. Contento
Brescia
Made in Italy..

The asking price is about $400AU, so about $263 US

Is this a good buy, and some history about this firearm would be much appreciated..

Not the owner of UO types I will say that for $263 USD I would snatch up one if it seemed to function with decent stocks (no cracks) even if a bit rusty... I mean scoop it up and RUN home!
And I know nothing of that brand or model!!!

I'm not at home, so I resorted to Google. And I didn't find much.

If this http://forums.pigeonwatch.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=56943 is the same gun, it looks good for a lightweight field gun. I wouldn't want to shoot too many rounds of clays with a 6.5# gun.
