I received my shotgun within 5 days of ordering. Buds was awesome and timely. The shotgun functions flawlessly and the fit and finish are pretty good for the price. My only complaint is some of the screws were pretty loose out of the box, lucky I disassembled and cleaned the gun before firing. Overall a very fun gun, would definitely recommend.

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!!
