That gun still looks better than a Winchester 24.

I'm with Brian, the Win. 24 ranks near the top.

My Father railed against two things in American shotgunnery -- bottom dumper pump guns and Winchester Model 24s, so I am genetically predisposed to dislike them.

Personally I've always felt the beavertail forearms on Ithaca's Lefever Model 4 Double Trap Gun is pretty darn ugly --

Only thing worse might be the forearm on the Iver Johnson SuperTrap --

I can't count the number of Iver Johnson "Super Traps" I have seen that gun guys have passed on because of the "non original, home made" forends, including the one I bought. Yup, it is ugly.
