wow, the last 2 posts really surprise me. i have any 11-87 special purpose. i have had it since 1992. i have shot at least 25,000 to 30,000 rounds through this shotgun (it's the only shotgun i have used for any type hunting/shot gunning sports) over the last 13 years. i have never had a single ftf, slamfire, ejection problem, etc. it still has the original o-rings on the gun. it is tight as a tick and i don't have the first problem hitting anything with it. every year i threaten to buy a new shotgun, and have since, but i use the 11-87 exclusively still. i don't know why the other 2 posters had problems with theirs. all i do for maintenence is clean it after each use. i paid $600 for it in '92. i would take it to a gunsmith, have him check it for damage, excessive wear, etc. and if he gives you the green light, i'd buy it at that price in a heartbeat. hth!
