I have buddy that bought one a couple of years ago. He likes the carrying weight of it, but said it pretty much stomped the snot of of him when he bears down on a turkey.I bought a Stoeger 2000 semi-auto back in the spring.I like it so far.have'nt had any problems with it.I think it was like $500.00 tax and all.
I agree too. I've looked on their website and wondered about the one with the AR-15 stock. I'm not too much on being one to buy the first model of anything. They show some sort double spring system to help with the recoil.I've shot an 870 most of my life and they are fine turkey guns when combined with the right choke. One thing I must say about them though is they kick like a mule so if ya go that route I strongly suggest a sims butt pad.
