I just happen to be looking on gunbroker for an 1100 just out of curiosity and I stumbled across this auction. It says: "There area couple of spots on receiver from blood it appears".

I don't know. Maybe it's just me.

my hunting shotguns usually have blood on them. Not exactly unusual for a hunting type firearm.

Exactly. Many "using" shotguns have a few spots where blood has dried before it was noticed and cleaned off...not unusual at all.



Wow, ok. I guess I was just surprised that someone wouldn't have cleaned that off better. Even still, I guess I'm also a little surprised that even after the fact, the blood leaves permanent stains.

Blood is really salt water.

As such, blood is highly corrosive to gun metal, and if you don't get it off quickly, it corrodes the metal.

Blood corrodes weapons. It is somewhat disturbing to see some of them, particularly when you know the details.
