The Mallard came very well packaged with the gun parts in cloth sleeves. I was impressed with the workmanship, fit, and appearance. It looks like a more expensive gun. The gun was very stiff, but is starting to loosen up.
It is the 12 gauge model. I took it to the range and it shot without any problems. The only thing that is bad, I mean really bad is that it KICKS like a mule!!! After 15 rounds I couldn't take anymore and had to put it down. My Friend shot 2 rounds through it and he had enough. I was only shooting Federal 2 3/4 #8 3 dram shells and couldn't figure out why it kicks soooo bad. I took out my old trusty Savage model 420 (1940 vintage) and finished the day, After studying both guns, the difference is that the savage weighs an extra 1 pound and has a Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad. After removing the butt pad, the Mallard has a large hole (3/4x1 1/4) for the stock bolt. I added 1 pound of 50 caliber balls and put a Pachmayr recoil pad on it. The difference was night and day. It now has the recoil of the Savage and is a pleasure to shoot.
