On this same note... I would like your opinions on a situation with the shop I purchased this gun from. I traded another gun for this old Mossberg. Took it to the trap range and over the course of 4 outings, put 6 boxes of light trap loads through it. Single shot only. On the first box, the extractor would not work, took it back ot the shop and they sold me the parts for $25 and I fixed it myself. Now I have less than 8 boxes total through this gun and the single action arm broke in half at the bolt on my first shot on Quail. I took it back to them and told them that they sold me a gun that was already in non working condition, and that it broke again after only a few boxes of field loads. They just told me it's a old gun, and proceded to charge me $50 to fix it.
I have been frequenting this shop for 12 years, buying flyfishing/ flytying goods, clothing, firearms, etc. and have been sending everybody I know their way. Now to be treated like this is just surprinsing.
What would you do? I just payed and left, probably never to return again, which is sad because they have always been a good group of people.
Thanks for the feedback.
