Has anyone ever heard of the company Companhia Brasileira de Cartuchos (CBC)? A shotgun that my grandfather gave me is stamped as having been manufactured by this company. I looked up their website, but it is in what I assume to be Portugese and I can't get the translator to work.

What sort of reputation do these firearms have?

CBC is a Brazilian company primarily known for ammunition manufacturing. I don't know about your shotgun but I have some CBC 6.5x55 brass that's is of high quality. They were owned by Remington at one time. Is your shotgun anything like an 870? You didn't discribe it at all. -- Kernel
