Robocop, you're off the mark. Remington quality has not gone anywhere. A few 870 Expresses with chambers not as smooth as they ought to be is only a catastrophe in some Mossberg fans and/or...

Well, it was/is a myth that O/Us don't need the barrels aligned just as much as a SxS. And actually that is what we are talking about. If there was zero convergence but perfect alignment, the...

I just don't like O/Us. I still remember when they were first coming into use for clay targets and all the gun writers raved about the single sighting plane. I will never have another unless it is...

I would have called WalMart and spoken to the manager and not quit until I got the gun I wanted if I had to call Bentonville. Mistake was 100% their fault. AND they could fix it easily, they just...

Do a Google search. I know one guy who had a 28 gauge Ruger 1 and bought a new one based on that experience and it has been back twice. Last time was for a long time, too.
I purely do not...

A LOT of Ruger Red Label 2s have gone back to Ruger for service; some more than once. Your money, but I would still wait and see.

Rather than re-introducing the Gold Label the rumor mill I hear says the Red Label may be going away again. I was really hoping they would get their issues worked out so I could get a Gold Label.

My experience:
Lengthen forcing cones - does have some effect. Could detect the difference 94% of the time, BUT could not quantitatively evaluate it. Didn't feel softer so much as different.

I always suggest a USED semi auto to someone starting out shooting targets. Either a Remington 1100 or a Beretta 3**. They do work fine, and they shoot soft. After you have shot for a little while...

A lot of people don't like the 887. It feels different than the other Remingtons to me, and all the accessories for the 870 that you seem to want do NOT fit it. I have heard stories of problems,...

That's a bit too much blue for me, but they shoot well. Ain't real high on the green ones either.

I've only shot two. One was a short barrel model that turned me off before I pulled the trigger so I cannot offer an unbiased opinion. Second was a field model with a 28" barrel. Handled okay for...

I do not own a bore snake, and when I say detail strip that means pulling the trigger group and buttstock and cleaning everything including the inside of the barrel. Otherwise it's remove mag cap,...

I just realized that first picture looks like an 1100 receiver because it does not have the stainless magazine tube. I guess I can now say I have seen 3, except I don't know anything about one of...

That looks like a 2 piece piston and piston seal and a barrel seal activator to me. And that is ONLY the second action sleeve I have ever seen with that oval hole cut out of it. I wonder if it was...

Run, don't walk from a Winchester 1200. The 1300 is a step up, but they have also introduced two improved designs since then, too. I'm sure someone will come along and tell you theirs is the...

The man said Wingmaster, so that is absolutely what I would recommend. He obviously isn't looking for the cheapest thing he can get. If you get a Wingmaster, extra barrels are no problem.

I don't really care where the parts are sourced from as long as there are good specs and quality control everything will be okay. BUT, a Huglu is not worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as...

That will not tell you where the parts are coming from. Mossberg was making a bunch of barrels in Mexico, and Beretta/Benelli is sourcing some in.... wait for it... Turkey.

If I even though I was at risk from a gang invasion I would move. Or stop doing whatever I was doing that might entice them.

The definition of "Non-toxic" is exactly that. You can eat it and it won't hurt you. Bismuth is the active ingredient in Pepto-Bismol. Tungsten is also inert and will pass right thru. You could...

Good luck. I don't use steel anymore, but all my friends who do use #2 steel for ducks. There is a major difference in performance between #2 lead and #2 steel.

While I agree with the comment about the modern steel loads, except for tight chokes, I saw a lot of damaged guns in Virginia and North Carolina. Most were bulges in the choke area, but I did see a...

I believe it is a no-no with the Belgian barrels, regardless of choke, but okay in the Japanese barrels. With the difference in costs for 16 gauge shells - not to mention the availability - I think...
