Last month I was with a friend on a dove hunt. He took it out and showed it to me and, after killing a few, let me take some shots with it. I liked it alot. It felt really sturdy. While we were out there, he never had a single jam or misfire or anything of the kind. I think I do remember him saying something about it not being the easiest to clean. But I cant remember, for the life of me, why. If you are still open to other autoloaders in that price range you may want to look at the Stoeger Model 2000. That is my pick. I recommend it to almost anyone shopping that price range. Good Luck! Hope you find the right gun.
