I love this gun. I shot a 9 point buck opening day of deer season in NY. Very good gun. I recommend this gun to anyone. I am a collector of New England firearms all there firearms are well made. - J. M.
I've had this gun for a year and a half. I've had it out busting clays when it was 90 degrees, and when it was wind chill of 0 degrees (literally). I've shot pheasant in the rain, used cheap ammo, as well as hand loaded ammo. Not one problem with it. None. The only reason I gave it a four rating was because the wood was soft, got dings in it very easily. Put on replacement synthetic stocks, problem solved (870 stocks fit). - J. Q.
I recieved this one with a 16 inch barrel, all black, ajustable choke, for Christmas. It shoots smooth. I have served 3 years in the military so I know a good weapon when I see one. It does have quite a bit recoil. Really the only thing I didn't like was afterwards when I was cleaning mine the charging handle jams back after the barrel is removed. - M. R.
