not that i have heard, they are a solid action and they have a very good reputation for reliability, i'd probably buy one myself but i have more than i can use as it is <p><img src=http://groups.msn.com/_Secure/0MAAAAI8QZ4sBCLKHBHhlVd0CSzKIQOv5iBMZMPtEwtYWZ8QkvKCdxecLv98L39tTQ5Ft9LsP8yN0AHAAOgAvAA/draft-tan20.jpg></p><i></i>

I have a Ranger 20 ga. I have shot it a lot in the field and on the range. It is a very smooth shooter. When using 7/8 oz field loads there is almost no recoil. It has 3 winchokes, and you can shoot steel loads through it.

I'm sure a 12 ga. would be similar.

If the price seems right, and the gun is in good condition, then I see no reason not to get it.

Let me put it this way, I have four shotguns. If I thought my Ranger was a sorry shotgun I'd sell it. The Ranger isn't for sale.

I've got a 1400 in 12ga that was my fathers and has been shot twice as much as my other shotguns and still shoots as good as it ever did.

For how much ? It should be $250 or less.

vent rib? wood grade?

when the action gets dirty, they jam. Otherwise a decent shotgun.

I have a 1500XTR 20ga. cost was $250, and it is oh, 95% or maybe a bit better, good bluing, vent rib. nice wood, wood has a few dings. NIB to Excellent brings the $250 price.

i just bought one for a beater gun. it seems to kick a lot harder than my rem 58 and high standard supermatic. could this be the action or the shape of the stock? it fits good and i shoot very well with it. also it seems to eat anything i feed it. thanks
