Barrel

My friend asked me if I would like a double barreled shotgun. I did. He gifted me an almost pristine Wards model 52A, (cross referenced to a Savage model 315). Both barrels were dangerously bent beyond repair. I would love to find a replacement barrel but have had no luck what-so-ever. Can anyone point me in a good direction? I've tried Numrich to no avail.

Just curious do you know how or why the barrels became bent?

Try Gunbroker and E-bay. Google search for shotgun double barrels might turn up some leads. Savage 315 parts search probably would yield some results also.

You will need a smith to properly fit replacement barrels

It might be possible to cut them shorter and still be legal.
