I have enjoyed this shotgun, despite it's few problems. It says "Puma" here, but was actually imported and shipped from "Chiappa".
I would be remiss if I didn't report that I had to send it back to Chiappa for the action randomly sticking closed after firing a round. I wasn't happy that they had it four months, but they were able to fix the problem. It hasn't stuck on me again yet. I've even shot some ten rounds of skeet with it to test whether the action was fixed or not. After two boxes (fifty rounds) it started having some occasional missfeeds. I can't say for certain if that was just the gun getting dirty, or me short-cycling it. Mayby a little bit of both.
The only recurring problem I have had with it is that it has a habit of loosening it's screws. All of them. Chiappa just sent me a replacement for the screw that holds the magazine/barrel clamp. I found it missing when I went to clean it after the last time I shot skeet with it. Locktite was made for this shotgun.
So I can't call the gun excellent. It has it's quirks, but I have had some very good times with it.
