that gun filled a very important nitch in gun sales in usa. it appealed to sbs admirers, yet was affordable to those that couldnt afford real sbs's like 21's, etc... many a farmer owned one and im sure they filled many a gut after a hunt, in its day. built like tanks, felt like 2x4's in your hands, and the forearm would occasionally come off when you fired heavy loads.
