i too have a 720 war time marked with a chromed barrel and all it has is a small chip in the stock and it is also engraved and I was told it is worth 800-1000 dollars because it is a rare riot gun .So info please on why it has a chrome barrel.


Tim, i think you are being very generous on this weapon.I have seen much,much better conditioned weapons on the guns america site fo as much as $300 dollars less on the low end and this one has been modified.

This piece is worth no more than $500 under any circumstance.
