The BPS's Ithaca-derrivitive action design is quite elegant. It's nice that they didn't have to cut the reciever on either side.

I was wondering if it'd make it tougher to clean? I'm about to part with my Benelli SBE and might consider one in 10ga to replace it...
if i parted w/ my sbe for a bps i would miss the sbe . . .but more to your question . . .i bought an old 12ga. bps for my dad . . .fixed modified choke . . .smooth shucker and solid . .perfect for my leftie dad . . .cleaning is another issue . i believe you must remove the trigger group to get the bolt out . . .the trigger group is difficult to re-install . .drove me and my gunsmith about nuts till i took it home and finally got it . . .but as you pobably know you don't need to take it down that far for routine cleaning . . .the fixed choke gun i bought for dad was only $281 . . .hard to pass up . .dad loves it (especially since i clean it for him) . . .i hunted with a father son team for snowgeese and they both use 24 or 26 inch barelled 10 ga. BPS's . . .they love em. a little heavey though as can be expected . . .but sbe can throw the same shot charge
