Plainfields are the best of the commercial carbines. Milsurp parts fit with no fuss. They run about $350ish depending on condition. Mine likes Speer 110 grain HP's with IMR4227.
Czechoslovakian firearms tend to be high quality. The make should be stamped on it. Then do a search for that.

Česká zbrojovka a.s. Uherský Brod = CZ

Lacking pics or a more detailed description and markings rundown, the shotgun sounds like it's a CZ shotgun, probably a model 581.

Does it have the CZ's Kersten locking bolt ? (A metal part pops/slides out of the action, to one side, when the opening lever is moved to open the barrels)

Does it look like this one ?
