It was originally designed for the US military as a less expensive weapon for marksmanship training.

This gun has the automatic safety and barrel band like the second variation made from 1956-59 but has the Mossberg peep Sight.
This gun retains over 95% of the original finish. The metal and wood both are original and in nice condition. The metal has a few spots. The wood was drilled for sling swivels. This is a pretty nice one.
