Shotgun sight protrudes into barrel

Dad gave me his old 12 gauge single shot shotgun. I brought it home and was cleaning it when I noticed something inside the end of the barrel. At first I thought it was a defect but it appears to be the end of the screw for the sight! I would say it protrudes maybe 0.5 mm into the inside of the barrel.

Never seen that. Probably okay for shot but I would not fire a slug out of it for fear the sight would be ejected or the barrel would split. Anyone ever see this in older shotguns (this one is probably 80 years old).

Sounds Iffy

Call your local gun store and ask for the resident Smith. Go in and ask for the gunsmith's opinion to be sure.

Sounds like a good way to get rid of a problem kid and collect the life insurance.

Fire away with the largest slugs you can find.
