I picked this nice little shotgun up at Wal-mart of all places. Anyone who has ever been to the sporting goods section at Wal-mart knows that they actually carry a nice lineup of firearms manufacturers, from Benelli to Marlin to Mossberg to Savage. Naturally they carry typically the lower end models of various hunting rifles, 22’s, and shotguns…but hey, it’s better than trying to pawn off the latest crusty import isn’t it?
Anyway, I’ve used this gun mostly for dove hunting the past few years and I have to say it’s functioned fairly well, despite my inability to kill the devil birds. I’ve probably put around 400-500 shells through this gun and I’ve never had a jam or malfunction which has kept it from being a great companion in the field.
Obviously it isn’t the most expensive of guns, but for a low end 20 gauge, I’d have to say I’m pretty impressed. It has interchangeable chokes and the always nice Realtree Hardwoods HD camo pattern throughout.
Disassembly is a piece of cake, taking all of about 10 seconds to completely break down the gun into barrel, action, stock and pump. As with most synthetic stock shotguns, this one is pretty light and would be a great gun for youth and ladies who prefer less recoil than a 12 gauge.
