Bought a SA-20 Turkey to try out because of the good reviews.
When I unboxed I found that the vent rib had been bent in shipping right where the ghost ring sight attached.
No big deal, took a screwdriver and bent it back. Can't even tell it now.

After cleaning I tried to assemble and found that the forearm was too tight on the barrel and would not let the forearm fit into the notch in the receiver :shock:
Not going well so far :evil:
Took some sand paper and sanded the sides of the forearm, and after some trail and error, got it to fit.
Shouldn't have to do this on a new gun, but this ain't the good old days.
Rather than send it back it was a simple fix.

Now for the good stuff.
Bought a Jeb's .555 choke
Patterned it today with some 3" hand loaded #9 TSS.
Couldn't be happier, gun is light, doesn't kick much, and out performs my 12ga M2.
