Decent shotgun

Got this as my first shotgun, so keep that in mind as you read this.... Got nothing to compare it too.

Like the fact it came with a fiber sight, but only had the one in front, so decided to add a cheap red-dot too it. 

For that to work, I got the "Monstrum Side Saddle Shell Holder" with rail. Using the 4 threaded holes on the top, this was easy. 

Shoots riffled slugs well, both 2-3/4 and 1-3/4. Slugs are all I have used with it, as that all the range will allow.... So, hope buckshot works when/if I need it? Strange rule ot buy and not be able to test it there, even 1-2 times.

Loading, cycling and firing all worked flawlessly for the 3 boxes I put through it. Accuracy is good, dialed in the red-dot with a bore-scope and shots were within 1/2 inch, 3-4 almost in the same hole at 10, 15 yards and within 1/2-1 inch at 20 yards.   

The rails in the front are a nice touch, used them to mount a flashlight. It works, but I do wish they were pushed towards the front a bit more.... As is, they are too close the the pump action, and anything mounted will.... well, be aware of this when you send the pump handle forward.

All in all, for the sale price, happy with the purchase.
