    They've been discussed here before - try the search function, maybe?

    In short, the design leaves some things to be desired - the single action bar tends to break, and the stock tends to break off where the stock bolt screws into the cast aluminum trigger plate. It's hard to field strip and clean the action and on most variations the barrel is fixed, so it doesn't take down. Spare parts are difficult to impossible to find and there are few accessories for them.

    They were inexpensive shotguns to begin with, and some of them have held up well and their owners are happy - but many have broken down.

    +1. My brother has been looking for a cartridge stop for his .410 for over a year. Sadly, the same parts that break and are easily replaced in other brands, are impossible to find for the 67.

    I love older guns, but even I would look for something else.

    As said already they break the link bar on the bend usually you can weld and reenforce it and it wont give any more trouble, they are simple and robust enough and i think its unlikely in normal use they will break any major bits extractor claws can wear but are available i would imagine, and even if not something close enough in design should be adaptable with a little thought, and a file.
