I finally have my first O/U, a Winchester 101 (from Bass Pro Shop, by FN). I was shopping for a while and tried a few (SKB ithaca 500, CZ teal, browning CX which was the top of my budget) and this is the one that fit the best for me. What should I expect in terms of longevity for this 101? I am sure FN produces good firearms. Has anyone had these newer 101s for a while and can give some comments? Most likely will be used for clays, and if I get my license I might take it for ducks/doves.

Unlikely you’ll ever find out. Go shooting. Shoot often. Shoot a lot. Take reasonable care of your new gun.

Go shooting. A lot, ask your question after 5-10,000 rounds are through it.:-)

I would expect it to shoot well for you for a lifetime.

Aside from the earlier models having a reputation for harsh recoil, the new version are much better. I just bought a new one a few weeks ago and I'm enjoying it. I expect the gun to last longer than me (lol).
