As soon as I saw this little shotgun, I had to have it. Arrived the other day and took it to the range. 12 gauge 18" barrel. I was very impressed with the build quality. Locked up very tight, easy to reload. What surprised me was the fact that I really thought the recoil would be much more stout than it was. Actually on the mild side for such a small shotgun. I ran 25 rounds of target ammo and 15 rounds of Buckshot. Because of a storm, I was at a indoor range. Plan on taking it to the out door range and experiment with lot of different buckshot loads. A really fun little gun. Hard to believe this shotgun is only a little over 4lbs. And folds up so small. And for $135.00. Can't wait for other barrels to come out. Especially some of the centerfire. Also interesting is that it is threaded for Beretta Mobile chokes. Shipped with a modified.
