I don't have a 390 but do have a Teknys 391 in 20 ga. Bought it for my son and after the initial 200 round break-in it has been flawless in operation with factory new shells and reloads. Very smooth action, light recoil, a great sporting gun both of us like to shoot. In fact I have shot my best score on the clays course with it. Must have been a very lucky day...........
I got one and love it. Paid $425 for it from a fellow in the classfieds who happened to live less than 1 hr away. I hunted with it so much I wore down the coating on the barrel. I had it camo dipped, and I replaced the factory hard plastic butt plate with a Sims Recoil pad (which added a little LOP and is good for me).
i recently purchased a used 20ga B3901 Statesman in 98% condition for about $670. this gun supposedly has exactly the same internals as a B390 but has the rounded receiver like a Rem 1100 and is American made. it is very light for field carry and has been flawless, i shot my best ever score on sporting clays with it. it is so light that it does kick a bit after 100 shots especially with the 1 oz loads. however for hunting especially where you have to walk alot it will be my go to gun in the future!go for it.
I have both a 20 & 12 gauge 390 ............... couple of the best semi-autos I've ever owned. Used them for waterfowl and upland birds. Both have handled every load I've put through them without a hickup.
