i hear that most of the problems come from the magazines. the feed lips get tweeked and you get some ftf and fte's (failure to feed, failure to extract)
good mags equal good performance, though.
Its a neat package and would do well as a backcountry game getter. For a more robust takedown I'd probably choose a marlin papoose, though...thats a nice gun.
This one, at a good price, can't be beat, however. (a good price being under $200 or even $100 in some places)
I like Springfield armory's M6, too. thats a cool break open shotgun/.22 with storage in the butt stock for ammo or survival kits. not made anymore, but can be found second hand for around $300.00
