Product Summary

The pump-action Model 3000 was imported by Smith & Wesson in the early 1980s to compete with the popular Remington 870. Its split lifter feeding mechanism addressed the Model 870s biggest drawback, the possibility of a jam if the operator short-stroked"the action while racking a fresh shell into the chamber. This improvement made the Model 3000 better suited to police use than the Remington, though modern 870s have since been updated to correct for this problem. The Model 3000 was discontinued in 1984 when Smith & Wesson experienced a corporate shakeup, but those 3000s that remain in use have been praised by shooters as robust and durable, with a design that's dependable enough for law enforcement use. This shotgun features a 20" barrel with adjustable rifle sights and a fixed cylinder choke. Its wood and bore are in good condition and its metal is in fair condition.
