I recently purchased a version of this Escort semi-auto 12 gauge. I love it every bit as much as my Remington 1100. It is used every weekend to shoot skeet, and now has about 500 rounds through it without one fail ! There are 2 bonuses you get with the Escort: 1) It is a very light gun (also, light recoil) so you do not get tired out so quickly when shooting extended rounds 2) It is very easy to breakdown and clean.
This gun is made by Hatsan in Turkey. These are the same people that build some of the Benneli shotguns for Beretta. You get the quality without the high price premium. - DAN
