First, Buds is awesome to deal with. Not my first transaction. Won't be my last. This shotgun performed flawless on my first outing. 50 rounds without a hitch. Note to potential buyers. As others have stated, comes soaked in machine oil. TAKE IT APART AND CLEAN IT PRIOR TO FIRST OUTING. Mine was loaded with hidden metal shavings. I chose to lightly grease all major moving parts prior to reassembly. Other observations. Although Winchester shells cycled flawlessly, they seemed to stick in the breach a little during extraction. ( softer shell casings maybe?). They required robust cycling of the lever, but functioned perfectly. Federal game load shells cycled smooth as butter. Did I mention no failures whatsoever ? I was a little apprehensive prior to pulling the trigger on this purchase. Other bad reviews and critical youtube video's abound. No regrets. Would buy again in a second. 5 stars considering the price point value and flawless function..

I have a mixed impression of this firearm. Generally, the fit and finish seemed OK especially given its low price range. It was packed in grease and required a good deal of cleaning to get the stuff out of it. I basically had to disassemble the firearm to get all the grease out. They must have soaked the gun in the stuff. Unfortunately, I had problems on the first trip to the range. On the third shot, the front sight bead flew off and was lost. Then, somewhere around shot 15, the extractor jammed into the chamber and damaged the chamber wall to an extent. I stopped shooting the gun at this point. I contacted Century Arms about the problems. They emailed me a label to ship the gun back to them. So, back it went. After 3 to 4 weeks (thereabouts), I received the gun back. It has a new sight bead and the chamber is fixed. I took it back to the range again and this time, it shot great. I have not shot it extensively but I did put about 2 boxes (50 shells) of bird shot through the gun to test it. No problems at all. Overall, despite the initial problems, I feel that the gun was worth the money. Hopefully, all the problems are behind me now and the gun will continue to function well going forward.

This shotgun has been given some less than stellar reviews, however the one I received is a pretty dammed good firearm. No problems with cycling the action, everything from trap loads to 00buck no problems. There is only one complaint that I have with this particular shotgun. It is a little finicky on loading the full five rounds. Four rounds , no sweat, five.....well let\'s just say it has automatic unloading option. The fifth round causes the magazine to kick out two or three of the rounds to bypass the shell stop. A problem, yes but not enough to rate the firearm as a bust. Besides, who really needs the fifth round. It sure gets noticed at the range. Everyone wants to check it out and shoot it . Make sure you take some extra rounds. Thanx Bud\'s for a fun shotgun.

PW87 Shotgun was delivered on time and in new condition and covered with a viscous oil that looked like engine oil. These Chinese are serious about lubrication, it seems!! The gun worked exactly as I expected and as I read and saw online from gun owners. It has a very rough action, and takes some getting used to. If it seems like the rounds stuck in the magazine they are not, you just have to rack the action with authority, and load one in the chamber by hand to get the other ones going. The last round seems to stay always on the extractor. Overall, it is a very good replica of the 1887 Winchester shotgun with very nice bluing and steel. If you\'re looking to use it for home defense, I\'d say it\'s possible but you need to practice a lot with it. It is not an easy to use gun and if you\'re not familiar with it enough you can be in trouble. This is more of a fun and cool gun than anything else. This is it\'s philosophy of use. The fun factor with this gun is awesome, it\'s the Terminator gun, what else you need to know? For a little over $300, I say it is definitely worth buying considering all other replicas are nearly 3 times as much money or even more!!

This an amazingly well-built, mechanically sound, unique piece of history. The rolling block action is strong, yet simple, with few parts, and very easy to disassemble. Understanding that the action needs to worked with deliberation to insure positive ejection of shells is about the only "quirk" to this gun. Give it a good cleaning upon unpacking, reassemble, then work the action for "awhile" and notice how it starts to smooth right out! Load it with proper length shells - considering it has a short, rotating action, and empties will clear without a problem as long as the lever is opened swiftly to bring up the lifter/carrier which really does the job of knocking the empty hull clear. The action is easy to take apart...easier than any "modern" pump design, and has fewer total parts, as well as only THREE major parts not counting the main spring. Work the action, add a stitched leather cover to the lever to help pad the fingers and this gun can be worked FAST! Don't let ANYONE tell you this "old" design isn't up to duty in the modern world because it sure is. It handles buckshot and slugs with ease while printing to point of aim with nicely distributed patterns from AA trap loads. At any expected "defensive" range, slugs and buck will hit accurately if the shooter holds accurately. I really LIKE this gun....the wood is real walnut, and all metal is "real steel" plastic and no aluminum. The rolling block action keeps the receiver ultra short, so even with a 20" barrel the OAL is quite compact. The best part is, the gun is meant to be a shooter...which means it doesn't have to end up as a wall-hanger because of age and being too valuable to shoot. Adding a nice parkerized Duracoat finish to the metal really makes the gun look "mil-spec" while also providing protection to the steel. I would advise everyone to buy one of these while they last.
