Manufactured by Baikal in Russia and imported by Remington, the SPR453 is a solid, simple and almost unbelievably low-priced autoloader. Imported for years as the MP153, the 453 has earned a solid reputation among waterfowl hunters as an extremely reliable shotgun that's simple and easy to maintain. Adjusting the gas system for various loads is a breeze-loosening the spring adds give to the gas piston, allowing heavy loads to vent excess gases. The recoil spring is mounted on the magazine tube, where it is easy to inspect and maintain, unlike springs in many guns that are hidden away in a tube in the stock. This shotgun features a ventilated rib, a bead front sight, a cross-bolt safety, and an improved cylinder choke tube. Its stock, metal, and bore are all in good condition.
