This is my second one of these. I gave the first to my son in law. After a few break in shots to loosen it up a little, it feeds and ejects great. If you shoot 3.5" shells, it can be a little tricky but thats mostly user error not fully working the slide. The sights are very bright and make it easy to acquire your target. The gun is very light which is good for carrying in the woods, but can be a little heavy on recoil, but such is the case with most magnum 12ga's with a synthetic stock. It swings easy and falls in place, for me, everytime. It comes with standard sling studs and you will have to install the front stud yourself, the rear stud is moulded into the stock. The factory XXF choke patterns plenty well enough for me to kill turkey out to 40 yards with #5 winchester supreme 3" turkey loads and to this point it has taken 5 gobblers at ranges from 20 to 40 yards (+/- a yard or two). You could probably do better with an aftermarket choke, but I don't see a need of it. You will need to remove the factory plug from the magazine if you want it to hold full capacity. This is a simple process that takes just seconds (if you do it before you install the barrel). The top tang safety and slide release are very easy to locate and manipulte even with gloves on. However, the safety is a little stiff and makes a very audible "click" when engaging and disengaging. A little downward pressure on the safety will quite down the "click". The camo has held up well to the brush and briers I have subjected it to. All that being said, this would be a 4 star gun if it wasn't for the low price that pushes it to 5 stars.

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]
