Default Model 24 J-DL Restoration

Picked one up a few years ago with a cracked and chipped stock, broken trigger guard and lots of wear for $200.

After fitting a rough in stock from gunstocks inc:

and waiting patiently for a new cast metal trigger guard and trap door butt plate from Numrich's :

and fitting and finishing here is the final reveal:

And it works...

I restocked the butt on my Series D 24 two months back.

I need to check it out this weekend as I noticed its cracked again... 😞

Did a test today to see how closely the two barrels shoot using the iron sights.

Here is the photo of the target showing two rounds of 22 lr and one 20 ga slug fired from 45 paces. About the distance I would typically hunt from with this rig:

Unfortunately thats pretty typical 😞

Is yours soldered barrels?

I have had a few and only one has been close enough to be useable.

But the 20 ga. shotshell hit right on target from 25 paces so I'm thinking that I need to shoot some more rounds to make sure where each barrel is hitting. Here is a photo of the No. 8 shot pattern:
