For a shotgun at this price, you can't beat the value. I've owned it close to a year and have shot it plenty. It's reliable, takes various ammo like candy, and is made out of strong steel. If you can forgive the fact it's made in China, you've got a great shotgun. Plus, many Remington 870 parts are also compatible for this shotty if you like to tac out or customize, but the Remington barrels do not fit this shotgun. The finish isn't great, but I'm more concerned with it going bang everytime I pull the trigger, and black is simple. Besides, scars and marks just add character. Never had a problem with this gun, and I trust it. Can't beat that.
