Remington manufactured at least seven different semiauto shotguns from 1905 to 1963, when the Model 1100 was introduced. Approximately 62,000 Model 878 Automasters were made between 1959 and 1962.
The Remington Automaster shotgun was available in 12 gauge only with a 26-, 28- or 30-inch barrel (a vent rib was optional). In average condition, a Model 878 Automaster will retail in the $150 to $175 range. You can add 15 percent if it has a 26- or 28-vent-rib barrel with modified choke.
Let me start off by saying I am not a farmer.
I am a deer hunter and I do own a tractor and have all of the equipment - but that does not make you a farmer any more than standing in the garage makes you a car - well, you get the picture!
Having said that - and with most of my ineptitude fairly well hidden - I do think that buckwheat is one of the most under rated cover crops out there.
I say cover crop because I see mixed results as it relates to the deer eating the plants.
