Maybe a few of you guys would know this.. this is a "first" for me.

I went an picked up my shotgun today. It was transferred new from another company.
Box says hatfieldguncompany.com, and I read the serial number to the employee who was doing the background check on me. But the one thing that I did "not" see after the fact, is on the printed serial inquiry report that has the transfer company's name and also what the employee wrote on another piece of paper was a company called 2 VETS ARMS CO as the manufacturer. HOWEVER.. on the barrel of the shotgun, it has UTAS-USA as the company who made the gun over in Turkey.

The company who sold the shotgun to me, is going to be emailing me the "company of origin" of the shotgun that I purchased.. but I would think that the company on the barrel should be the same on the paperwork. Does that seem strange to anyone else?

I'm thinking they said "country of origin". That is a fairly common bit of info used in foreign shipments going either way. Beyond that I would think the "receiver" is the serialized part of interest. But then I'm not expert on that stuff. Keep us posted what the final out come is.

New guns don't exist until there's photographic proof. :p

Thanks.. we'll see what they send me.. the serial number is correct.. which is good, and the gauge of the shotgun... I guess I would feel better if they send me paperwork in regards to the actual company. The good thing is.. the shotgun looks awesome. No rust, no crack in the stock.. nothing.. firing pin is good.

LOL... wise.. you are. ;-) I'll be doing a range report in the other long arms part of the forum when I have time. I am also doing a review on a .22LR adapter as well. I may post pics this weekend of both, ahead of time again.. in the other long arms part of the forum. I just cleaned her up inside and out, and she's sleeping now. :)

BOOM STICK!

I like how he just happened to have a high school chemistry book in the trunk so he could make gun powder

It kind of looks like this.. but single barrel. And, this looks like me after getting off of work today and fighting the traffic to pick it up:

He paid how much for that three round boom stick? Where can I get one?

My H&R Pardner says both "H&R 1871 LLC" and "Made in China Hawk Industries."

And of course many guns have both a manufacturer's marking and an importer's marking.

If you listen carefully just before the final shot, you can hear the sounds of a reload.

Just because you didn't see it (and just because it would have been insanely fast for a two handed person, much less an one handed guy...AND it's the sound of someone cycling the action of a pump shotgun)...doesn't mean that it didn't happen...:eek:

I believe that it is required by law that a imported weapon have the actual manufacture and the importer on the weapon, as well as caliber / Gauge, serial number of course, Model, it also states the size of such info that will be engraved in the weapon.
now I am not sure if this applies long guns but I believe it does.
I had a list of the regulations somewhere on this computer but can't find them.

Well, they are sending me the corrected paper work, because I have a feeling that the company that is etch on the barrel should be the same as on the paperwork... and I think there is a legal requirement.. more for "them" at the store.

After that phone call, this is what happened:
