Noble sxs shotgun

Anyone own or have experience with this brand of shotgun? I looked at a nice little example in .410 bore at the LGS today. looked pretty decent with some case color, engraving, cut checkering, pretty nice bluing. All in all a good looking gun. Has not been made since 1971 so I am guessing parts would be an issue should it break.
Don't need it but it caught my eye so what say you?

    I have an old (late 50s early 60s) Noble 16ga pump. A family friend gave to me in the late 70s. It's a pretty decent and reliable shooter. Not worth much but I wouldn't part with it. Still knocks down skeet.

    The doubles were Spanish imports

    I would buy it if the price was right.and I wouldn't worry about parts. Those Spanish 8mports were generally popular enough the parts shouldn't be hard to find or have made.
    My personal experience with Spanish guns has been that quality can be hit or miss. Over all its good.
    I would buy it.

    Spanish it is. Asking price is 300.00 and it's a consignment piece. Got to ponder it a bit.

    Sounds like a deal. I've got a Spanish 20 gauge, it's a great little gun. For $300, you could do a lot worse.
