sir, not to stir the pot... But I don't go off of info from 10 yrs past..... Keep in mind, there are people that struggle to just afford a $226 gun.......mudpack wrote:Assault wrote:So ur saying in 10 years, nothing was upgraded?
I would certainly hope so. But, upgraded to what?? That's anybody's guess at this point.
Bottom line, as Cajun1 said, is that a $226 (new) shotgun is a cheap...by definition....gun. I, myself, can't afford to throw $226 away on junk.

not starting g anything I think it's cheap enough to try out i bought a cheap semi auto that I abuse like a cheap whore I wouldn't say it's a great shogun but I bring it out in the open water and in swamps I don't lik to take my nicer shotguns out to places that could ruin them so the cheap one I don't care about it adds a little head ache but being a new father and saving money for her collage is important to me so I make it workDrew4711 wrote:Umm thanks for the responses!
didn't mean to start anything

I buy it. Take it home put a winchester 2 3/4 inch 1 1/8 oz. #7 1/8 in the chamber, pulled the string to the thrower. Skeet flies, I swing to meet it with the bead, click. The gun doesn't fire. Skeet bust on the ground. I think, well maybe it's the shell? Eject it rack one it. Click. Click click click. 5 clicks later on the same shotshell I look at the primer and the firing pin doesn't seem to be hitting the primer cap hard enough. I manually loaded a shotshell into the chamber, with the action open, slammed the action closed manually threw a Skeet, boom. Gun fires. I think okay, I can't do that every time I'm in the field so I tried the same method again; worked. It seemed the hammer wasn't hitting the firing pin hard enough unless the action was manually closed. I continue to manually close the action, 10 shots later the Hammer breaks. I send the gun back to Hgllc, as they kindly payed for everything shipping and handling wise, I just received the gun back today. Yet to shoot it. First impression not so good, maybe the trigger assembly was just a dud the first time. Will see soon.
