I am interested in the Impact.

Is it turning out to be a great all-around shotgun for the clay sports?
Is it reliable and easy to live with?
Should one avoid a used unit?
What is the POI set to from the factory and what is the range of adjustment?

Thanks in advance!

Danny, my Impact has turned out to be a great gun for me. Have used it mainly for trap and have shot some of my best scores with it so far. Gun is very well balanced, very good triggers, very good chokes and barrel regulation. Recoil is very low with Guerini balancer in butt.
I think Guerini states POI is adjustable from 50 to 95 % high,will vary shooter to shooter, I have found that it has a wide range for me with the adjustments quick,repeatable and secure.
I own 3 Guerini's and all have been very reliable, one of the great things with Guerini is if you do need service they turn it around fast and the work is done right. Only issue I had with all 3 guns was a very small wood check at the receiver on the Impact, they repaired it quickly and I can't tell it was there.
Here is a link to Guerini Demo Centers, don't know how close Houston is to EL Paso, but if you are close enough give one a try.

El Paso to Houston is 753 miles. Or as they say here in Texas, a nice afternoon drive. "The sun has riz, the sun has set, and we ain't out of Texas yet."

Can someone tell me the height of the butt pad? I have a long neck and need a tall butt pad so when I raise the gun to my cheek I still have contact with my shoulder pocket.

Thanks in advance!

Shot one at the NM State Sporting Clay Shoot last month, it's a trap gun in my opinion.

I'm not sure why you would consider it "only" a tap gun. The Impact can adjust comb and rib to accomidate trap, skeet, or sporting.

They do make a "Trap" model. Looks very similar to the Summit Impact but the rib max and min. is different than the Impact.

I'm using my Summit Sporting almost 100% for skeet. I've added an adjustable comb and butt. Works great and I'm seeing more and more at our club.

My opinion is that it's a versatile gun and can be used for any of the clay sports.

Ok, I have made up my mind and am going with an impact (as soon as I can demo), now the question is summit or challenger. I think this will be my last gun if it lives up to its reputation.

What do you all recommend?

It looks like the biggest difference between the Impact and the Challenger is the trigger, stock and the option for 28".

My interests are #1 Skeet, #2 Sporting #3 Trap. I would choose the Challenger.

Anyone have the Challenger? It looks really nice...is it too nice for an everyday gun?

What is the difference in a type T?

I haven't looked it up but T usually stands for Trap.
