Eastfield 916A Shotgun

Hello all, I just got this in an estate sale as almost a throw in with a really nice rug. It's an 18 inch 12 gauge, pretty rough bluing but seems functional, or at least did before I took it a part. Does anyone know of any links that I can find a diagram of this gun? I can't figure out where two parts go; typical. Thanks much

You have a "store brand" gun made by someone else. Smith & Wesson made a pump shotgun called the 916A, and yours may be one of theirs. Check the Numrich website at www.e-gunparts.com to see if they have a diagram of the S&W gun. I think this is the link: http://www.e-gunparts.com/productsch...del=1980z916-A

Good luck!

That's it. Parts 6 and 31 are not in the building, but hopefully will be this evening. Thanks a lot.

Caleb, I have an S&W/Eastfield 916,too. actually the second one I have owned. Like yours, mine was free with another purchase,had been cut to just legal limit and didn't work - wow, like dejavu all over again.
Anyway, if you haven't figured it out yet, you are supposed to loosen or remove the butt stock before trying to take out the reciever pins.
These shotguns are not sophisticated or pretty, but I can hit well with them.
IIRC, they were actually mfg'd by Springfield.
