[4 of 5 Stars!]I bought this shotgun fully aware of its mixed reviews. I bought it knowing that it could require tinkering to make work properly. It did come with a couple of problems. First, it wouldn\'t extract empty shells from the chamber. Second, the magazine follower was undersized allowing it to protrude into the action and cause malfunctions. Third, the handguards rely on a small lug brazed onto the mag tube to prevent the handguards from sliding forward under recoil. Examination showed that the left extractor which is responsible for primary extraction wasn\'t working properly. I was able to adjust the angle on the back of the extractor that interacts with its plunger with a file to make it work properly. I found a used magazine follower for an 1893 Winchester on ebay. I was able to turn down its outer diameter and give its face a convex surface to make it work. I then made a steel spacer to bridge the gap between the handguard lug and the front retention screw which cured the problem of the handguards sliding forward under recoil. I realize that\'s a lot of technical work, but I enjoy that kind of thing. It\'s a very cool novel design. It\'s also a hoot to shoot. Buy one of these understanding that you may need to tinker with it a bit to iron out the kinks. For the price I\'m very happy with the purchase. Service from Buds was excellent again.

[4 of 5 Stars!]I recently purchased the Century International Arms
PW87 lever action shotgun. The issue with this gun
is that occasionally it doesn\'t eject the last shell easily
and the lever has to be work in an aggressive manor
making sure you push it all the way to the positive
stop. That will probably solve any ejecting issue. Definitely
make sure you use the 2 3/4 or 2 1/2 inch shells.Show More Reviews...
