Here's an example of what we mean about value. Compared to the SIG Aurora, which costs less, the engraving on the blued Ideal is serviceable, but pedestrian.
The Remington had nice looking wood finished with a satin gloss. The checkering was 20 lines per inch, and was cut cleanly.
The heavier Remington, which had a thicker and softer recoil pad, was more pleasant to shoot with 3-inch magnums or the heavy 2 3/4-inch pigeon loads. But the top of the pad needed trimming to reduce snags.
