I have had my PW87 for little over three months now, and I have to say I love it. I held off on writing a review until I got the gun figured out completely. It is a very accurate copy of the Winchester 1887/1901 design. It's tough and dependable. Out of the box, it was very clean and the action cycled smoothly. There was plenty of lubrication in the action on it. Machining on the internals was a little rough with all those edges and moving parts in it. I have in total put somewhere close to 150 rounds through this gun. I have used 00 buckshot, smooth bore slugs, and standard birdshot. The first thing I noticed with this gun, is the sensitivity to certain ammo. The first ammo I ran through it was Winchester Universal Load and I was lucky if one shell out of twenty-five ejected properly. Most cases with that ammo is that it left the shell in the chamber. I kept firing it and oiling it up, but hangups still occurred. I tried high brass (00 buck, slugs) and they worked flawlessly. It shoots pretty hard with high brass, but I love the feeling of authority it gives. I eventually picked up some Federal Premium Target Load for trapshooting use, and I still have yet to have problems with that ammo either. After a few times of shooting, I noticed some plate screws were coming loose. Snugging them up with a screwdriver fixed that quickly. In short, don't cheap out on buying ammunition. Buy ammo with brass hulls, not aluminum, and keep it clean and oiled. The gun is built well, and shoots very hard. Definitely recommended!
