The Shotgun Works just fine, the real fact is Remington owns both companies. The specs are Remingtons, & some of the Remingtons parts are made in Japan. Stop waving the Flag. USA products, made only in the USA are so hard to come by. Remington created this line of shotguns for what purpose who knows what for? I own Both Shotguns they work great!!! If youre on a budget Get the H&R Pardner Pump / Hawk 982 Pump.
