Process with Buds was smooth and problem free.
Solid constructions. Di-assembly revealed quality workmanship throughout. Good solid looking welds. Massive heavy block.
Dis-assembly instructions where a bit wrong, but easy enough to figure out the correct procedure. I did not attempt removing trigger assembly as this requires a punch (which I have) and seemed a bit over kill to clean.
Took the gun out to a clay range (trap / skeet / etc). I know, it's a *tactical* shotgun.
Turned out that it isn't too hard to score hits, hit about 50 - 66 % of clay pidgins thrown. I figure, if I can hit a clay with this then in a house defense situation, I'm going to be dead on.
Did not have even one problem feeding. I was shooting 6 1/2 3" shells, full load. House load is 3" 0-0 buck.
Recoil was not bad, but still bruised my cheek (using proper cheek weld) and shoulder after 50 rounds. Sight picture with ghost rings was surprisingly easy to use.
I would highly recommend this gun as a cost effective way to get a high-quality tactical shotgun into your hands. Two thumbs up!
