Solid cheaper gun

I saw the price of this and was kinda shocked a gun could be so cheap, so I goolged it and read reviews. They were all pretty positive, so I decided to buy one even though I wasn't shopping for a shotgun.

I changed out the shims for me and was a bit worried the stock would come loose after shooting. I only shot a couple of boxes through it, but its still nice and tight. I'm not sure I'd carry it into battle, but for a bump in the night gun, I fully trust it.

I like the built in picatinny rail that I will use for a light one day and I wish I could find a side saddle plate for it, but for the price, I'm not complaining.

Great shotgun, better price. Only recommendation is to change the follower to a aluminum one to increase relatability and better feed. Highly recommend.

Great price for the safety

Ergonomic design and waited for it about a week.

Tactically Inexpensive

Not a bad gun, at all. I bought it strictly because of the price point, but was pleasantly surprised at the overall quality of the gun. No it's not a Mossberg or a Winchester, but it will definitely do what it was built to do! Bottom line......a small gamble that paid off BIG TIME. I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

Great Product

Folks, I like the price and quality of this Shotgun. It's got it all. I was very Impressed. So good of a deal I almost bought two! I showed a friend of mine at my local Pawnshop and he immediately bought one two! If you get bored, Please allow me to entertain you with my books Moon People Trilogy, They are Sci-Fi Space Adventures now in the Kindle Fire in the Kindle Lending Library. You can read them for free.

Great Product and price

I couldn’t believe the price of the gun. Everyone I have showed it to are really surprised and want one

Good budget shotgun

Honestly, overall the gun is fine. Most certainly cheaper made and the barrel metal is much thinner than name brand shotguns. However, after firing it and getting used to it, 4/5 for sure. Not the best, most certainly not the worst.

Awesome product and price very fast shipping.

Ordered on Monday arrived on Wednesday. Picked up from my FFL dealer and even he was impressed with it. Very well built and for the price we'll worth it why I bought 2. May have to keep an eye out for them to come back in stock and order a couple more

Great experience

This is my second purchase from gunprime. Both experiences have been great and I’m looking forward to my next purchase.
The shotgun was exactly what I expected.

By Shane on 02/05/21

Wicked fun gun. It puts a nice hole in a silhouette target with 3 inch slugs at 75 yards. Might try to shoot a deer with it next during years or shotgun season!
