I have a chance to make an offer on what looks like a sweet little 16 ga SxS. I was just wondering if anybody knows anything about this gun.

Churchill was the trade name for a line of O/U and SXS shotguns imported by Kassnar, now defunct. Many were made in Italy, some in Turkey, so it is hard to give a definitive Yea/Nae on them (similar to the Spanish shotguns so common in the 1950s-60s). In general parts are not available, and if you do find parts labeled as for a Churchill, it is uncertain whether or not they will fit at all, as they used the same name and model designation for shotguns of different manufacture and design. That said, they are generally a very pretty shotgun (nice wood, checkered, and rolled engraving on the receivers), and handle fairly well, and you might have an excellent gun for all around use.

I got it for $350.00. It was exactly what I was looking for: 16Ga., Double Trigger, Mod/Full, 28" Barrels. Maybe I paid a little too much, but I am a Happy Camper, and after all, that's what counts!!
