I’d really forego the S-Mart special and choose this little beauty. From what I hear, the finish is impervious to Cherry Coke Zero too . . . . 

“The Winchester Model 97 was designed by John M. Browning as an improved version of the Winchester Model 93. The shotgun’s firepower was used to stop German attacks cold, something previously only a crew-served machine gun could do. Fitted with a bayonet and barrel heat shield it was a soldier’s best friend in close quarters, when hand-to-hand fighting was upon him. For these reasons, it was called a “trench gun” or “trench broom.””
