I'd snap it up, rust or not. They haven't imported those for many years, so I'd ask to run a box a shells through it first. They're nice shotguns.

They go for $300-$350 it would be a good buy. I had one at one time and loved it, but has others and never shot it. Pretty guns.

alright i picked it up. it is a standard 12 gauge made in 1977 and uses 2 3/4 shells. I polished the muzzle and that seems to have taken out the rust

Here's a link for a pdf file of the owners manual if you didn't get one w/ the gun. You may want to keep an eye open for a good deal on a 3" barrel for your B-2000.
